"Marry me salmon" from Andfjord Salmon

"The story of this dish has it that if you make it for a very special person, your dinner will end with a marriage proposal. That's how good the dish is," reveals photographer and food influencer Finn-Erik Rognan.

"This dish is originally made with chicken, but we will of course be preparing it with salmon from Andfjord Salmon," he says.

The procedure is simple.

Put a ring on it

"If you follow this recipe the letter, I promise it will end with happiness and maybe even a ring on your finger," laughs Rognan.

Pan-fry salmon on medium to high heat in olive oil for 2 minutes on each side. Take the salmon out of the pan and let it rest.

Add butter, shallots and garlic to the pan, and let it cook for 1 minute.

Add cream, stock, parmesan, sun-dried tomatoes, oregano, sage, and chili flakes. Bring to a boil and reduce somewhat.

"Finally, add the salmon and top it all off with basil and more Parmesan," says Rognan.
