  • Author: Mila Clarke Buckley
  • Total Time: 25 minutes
  • Yield: 16 oz 1x


The star of this recipe is the lemon cream sauce made with Truvia Natural Sweetener. No extra carbs or calories!


Units Scale
  • 2 lbs. of salmon
  • 1/4 cup chopped basil (and a little extra for garnish)
  • 1/2 cup cream
  • 1 tablespoon of Truvia Natural Sweetener
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
    1/2 cup grape tomatoes
  • 3 cups fresh green beans
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Heat a cast iron pan with oil inside. Use high heat. 
  2. Rub your salmon with olive oil and salt
  3. Place skin side down in your pan and let cook until it has reached 145 degree temperature. 
  4. While the salmon is cooking, make your cream sauce. Mix together cream, lemon juice, 1 tablespoon of olive oil, salt and Truvia Natural Sweetener . Add chopped basil and set aside. 
  5. Once salmon is done cooking, take it out of the pan and pour in your cream sauce (it will bubble a lot). Turn the heat down to medium.
  6. Add your green beans and grape tomatoes. 
  7. Place the salmon back into the pan, and let the sauce reduce (it will become sticky, deep in color, and thick). 
  8. Plate your salmon and enjoy!
