Broiled Salmon with Spinach & Feta Saute

***If you're a fan of salmon and are in need of a quick and delicious weeknight meal, may I suggest this amazing recipe? Dinner doesn't get much easier than this. This entire meal can be ready in less than 20 minutes...or certainly 30. The salmon broils for about 7 minutes, and the sauteed spinach is prepared while the salmon is in the oven....Easy Peasy!

The taste is wonderful. In fact, Brad made the comment that this dish was one of his favorite things that I've made recently. I have to agree...So, it's earned a spot in the Top-Rated Recipes category! Plus, it makes a beautiful presentation. Because of that, this dish would certainly make a great meal for dinner guests. One that will make everyone think you've slaved away in the kitchen all afternoon...Hehe. If they only knew...

I love the combination of spinach and feta here...that's one of my favorite combos in anything. The pine nuts add just the right texture, and it all goes perfectly with the salmon. I think you'll REALLY enjoy this one!

Bon Appetit!***

4 skinless salmon fillets (6 ounces each)
Coarse salt and ground pepper
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 bags (5 ounces each) baby spinach
1/2 cup feta, crumbled (2 ounces)
1/3 cup pine nuts
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice


Heat broiler, with rack set 4 inches from heat. Place salmon on a rimmed baking sheet; season with salt and pepper. Broil until opaque throughout, 5 to 7 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a large skillet, heat oil over medium. Add as much spinach as will fit; season with salt and pepper. Cook, tossing spinach and adding more to skillet as space becomes available, until tender, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat; drain off excess liquid. Stir in feta, pine nuts, and lemon juice. Serve salmon with spinach saute.
