Serves 4

Ingredients


4 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons garlic, minced
1 bag spinach
1 tablespoon Angler’s Reel Blend
Salt and pepper
4 tablespoons All Spiced Up balsamic
1 tablespoon mustard (we like a pub-style mustard)
2 salmon filets (about 1 pound each)
¼ cup water (or red wine)
1 (8 oz) package mushrooms, sliced
Rice or quinoa


Directions


  • Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add 1 tablespoon minced garlic. Sauté about one minute.
  • Add spinach and continue cooking until wilted. Add Angler’s Reel Blend. Remove spinach and set aside on a plate.
  • In the same pan, heat 3 tablespoons olive oil. Mix balsamic and mustard and the remaining tablespoon of garlic.
  • Place salmon in skillet and spread about half the balsamic mixture over it. Cook for about 3 minutes, turn, cover the other side with the remaining balsamic mixture and cook until done (about another 3-4 minutes).
  • Remove salmon from pan.
  • Add water (or wine) and de-glaze the bottom of the pan by scraping browned bits from the bottom.
  • Add mushrooms and cook until done.
  • Serve spinach, salmon and mushroom with your favorite rice, or quinoa.


Note: You can substitute 4 chicken breasts for the salmon.
