Pan Seared Salmon with Lemon & Garlic Sauteed Spinach

Pan Seared Salmon with Sautéed Garlic Spinach

2 half pound salmon filets
¼ cup flour
1 t. salt
1 t. pepper
3 T. olive oil

In a bowl mix flour, salt and pepper. Rinse and pat dry with a paper towel, the salmon filets. Dip each one into the flour mixture and dust off excess.

In a medium, oven proof skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Place the filets into the pan and sear for a minute or two on each side. Start with the non-skin side. Place into a 350 degree oven for 15 to 20 minutes until the salmon is just firm.

Sautéed Fresh Spinach with Lemon and Garlic

2 ½ pounds of fresh spinach
3 T. olive oil
2 T. butter
2 cloves minced garlic
4 T. fresh lemon juice
Salt and pepper

In a large saucepan, over medium heat, melt the butter and add the olive oil. Add the garlic and cook for one minute. Then add the spinach and toss until wilted. Finish with the lemon juice and salt and pepper. Serve immediately.

  1. If you like the lemon-garlic combo with spinach, you might want to try fenugreek as well. Just warm some ground fenugreek in a pan, add butter, wilt the spinach and salt and pepper to taste. Enjoy!


It simply makes me smile when I receive a new comment and I look forward to hearing from you!
