Easy Salmon and Cabbage with Cheese Cream Sauce

Easy Salmon and Cabbage with Cheese Cream Sauce

You can make cream sauce with easy melting cheese rather than making a white sauce.

Ingredients: 2 servings

Fresh salmon fillets
2 pieces
about 3 leaves
Pizza cheese
50 g
1 cup (200 ml)
10 g
Cake flour
as needed
Salt and pepper
to taste


1. Chop the cabbage into large pieces and boil. Once it softens, drain and cool.
2. Sprinkle salt and pepper on the salmon and coat with flour. If you coat with flour until completely white, like in this picture, you can get nicely thickened sauce later.
3. Heat butter in a pan and cook the salmon on both sides until golden brown. Then pour milk and continue cooking. Add the cabbage and simmer for about 10 minutes.
4. Add pizza cheese and, once it dissolves, it is ready to serve. Add salt and pepper to taste.
5. If you prefer not to boil the cabbage first, you can add uncooked cabbage at the same time as the milk. However, the taste will be weaker as the water comes out from the cabbage, so adjust the seasonings.

Story Behind this Recipe

It was bit of hassle for me to make a white sauce, so the idea came to me, “why don’t I just add cheese? It will thicken.”
This recipe was inspired by cheese fondue.
