Pan Seared Salmon with Mushrooms and Spinach


Wonderful, fast and easy to prepare! The blend of salmon, mushrooms and spinach creates a delicious ensemble of tastes that come together nicely.

Prep Time: 2 Minutes
Cook Time: 15 Minutes


• Salmon fillets
• Salt and pepper
• Olive oil or cooking spray
• 1 Tablespoon butter or cooking spray
• 1-2 shallots, sliced
• 1 cup mushrooms, sliced
• 2 cups fresh spinach leaves
• Juice of lemon


Sprinkle salmon with salt and pepper.

Coat the bottom of a pan with oil or add cooking spray and place on medium-high heat. Add salmon to pan; cook 5 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. Remove from pan, and cover with aluminum foil to keep warm.

In the same skillet, melt butter. Add shallots and sauté for a minute. Add mushrooms and continue to sauté for a few minutes. Add spinach; cook 30 seconds or until spinach wilts.

To Serve:
Place salmon and sautéed vegetables on a plate, drizzling any pan juices on top. Squeeze lemon over salmon and vegetables and dinner is served!
