Woman and two boys preparing a meal
Recipe from Dr. David Katz's Flavor-Full Diet
Servings: Serves 4
  • 4 salmon fillets (about 1 1/2 pounds total; preferably wild Alaskan)
  • 4 tsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 2 cloves garlic , chopped
  • 12 ounces baby spinach , rinsed
  • Directions
    Line a baking sheet with foil and preheat broiler. If your oven doesn't contain a separate broiler, move rack to 5 to 6 inches below heating element.

    Place fish on the baking sheet and drizzle the fillets evenly with 2 teaspoons olive oil and 2 tablespoons lemon juice. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste. Broil for 10 to 12 minutes or until cooked through.

    Meanwhile, heat the remaining 2 teaspoons oil in a large skillet. Add the garlic and sauté, stirring, for 20 seconds. Add spinach, several handfuls at a time, and toss until each batch wilts and all 12 ounces fit into the skillet. Stir in the remaining 2 tablespoons lemon juice.

    To serve, divide spinach among 4 plates. Top each with a fillet.
