Creamy Tuscan Salmon

Tuscan Salmon is a pan seared salmon served in a delicious creamy sauce with spinach, sun dried tomatoes and parmesan. However, I make my Tuscan Salmon with blue cheese and no sun dried tomatoes making my recipe a bit different then the traditional recipe. Scroll down to see exactly how I make it!
