Salmon Fillets and Spinach with Strawberry Salsa

I decided to make this with some salmon we had in the freezer, unfortunately it was not as good as if it would have been fresh, but overall this dish combines a bit of sweet and citrus with a wilted spinach to compliment the salmon filet.


Ingredients:

  • 4 Salmon Fillets - skins removed
  • 1 tsp Lemon Zest
  • 1 lb strawberries - diced
  • 2 kiwis - peeled and diced
  • 1 cucumber - diced
  • 1 jalapeno, seeded and finely minced
  • 2 T Chopped Fresh Mint Leaves
  • 2 T Lemon Juice
  • 1 lb baby spinach - rinsed, not dried
  • 1 T Lemon Pepper






Instructions:
 Preheat oven to 350.  Place salmon fillets on a baking sheet, sprinkle with lemon zest.  Bake 15-18 minutes


Combine strawberries, kiwi, cucumber, jalapeno, mint, and 1T lemon juice in a bowl and toss until uniform.  Do not cut your finger like I did, there you have been warned!

Heat a large pan with high sides over medium heat.  Add the freshly washed spinach, water should still be dripping from the leaves, cover and cook 5 minutes until wilted.  Add 1 T lemon juice and lemon pepper to taste. 

Place salmon on top of greens, top with salsa.  Serve immediately.

Jeff, this looks pretty delicioso! In the words of my first composition teacher, "Good composers borrow, great composers steal." I am borrowing this one hombre!
