Ingredients

Fresh spinach adds that touch of elegance to heart-healthy salmon fillets. Our Salmon Florentine sounds fancy, but this easy fish recipe is as at home for a weeknight meal as it is super for a company meal.

Serves: 4

Cooking Time: 15 min

 
Ingredients
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 4 salmon fillets (about 1-1/2 pounds total)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 (10-ounce) package fresh spinach
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried basil

Directions

 
  1. In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium heat. Evenly sprinkle salmon fillets with salt and pepper and cook 8 to 10 minutes, or until salmon flakes evenly with a fork. Remove to a platter and set aside.
     
  2. Add remaining oil to skillet; stir in garlic, spinach, lemon juice, and basil, and cook 2 to 3 minutes, or until spinach is wilted. Arrange on platter with salmon, and serve immediately.
