#2 Easy Salmon Recipes – Salmon (poached) on a bed of Spinach and Rosemary Roasted Potatoes
For the spinach:
• 1 pound of spinach (make sure you wash it very well
• 3 tablespoons of lemon juice
• 1/2 teaspoon of zest from the lemons
• 1 teaspoon of Dijon mustard
• 3 tablespoons of olive oil
• salt and pepper
Wash the spinach and steam it (moderate heat – for 3 or 4 minutes) with only the water that clings to the leaves after you wash it.
Drain the spinach with cold water to stop the cooking – squeeze gently the spinach to extract some of the water and set aside.
Whisk the lemon juice, with the mustard, lemon zest, salt and pepper in a bowl (all together). Add slowly 2 tablespoons of the olive oil to the mixture in the bowl. Keep whisking until it is well mixed. Set aside!
To poach the salmon:
• 4 salmon fillets or salmon steaks
• 2 tablespoons of red wine vinegar
• 3 tablespoons of chopped shallots
• 2 tablespoons of fresh tarragon and fresh chives
Make sure you use a fish poacher – add two inches of water and the vinegar and bring to a simmer. Place the fish inside the fish poacher and cook it for 4 or 5 minutes if cooking salmon fillets, 6 or 7 minutes if cooking salmon steaks (low heat is recommended when cooking the fish).
In a frying pan, cook the shallots in olive oil (use medium heat for this and cook the shallots for 2 minutes) – add the spinach to the shallots and olive oil and cook it for another 2 minutes. Season it with salt and ground pepper only if necessary.
Rosemary roasted potatoes:
• 1 1/2 pounds of red and white potatoes
• 1/8 cup of olive oil
• 3/4 teaspoon of salt and black pepper
• 1 tablespoon of garlic (3 cloves)
• 2 tablespoons of fresh rosemary (chopped very fine)
Turn on the oven to 400 degrees F.
Place the potatoes in a baking dish and roast them for one hour. While the potatoes are baking, turn the potatoes twice with a spatula so they can brown in all sides.
Remove the potatoes once they are cooked. Move the salmon and the spinach to a platter. Mix and whisk 1/4 cup of the poaching liquid left to the dressing you made earlier with lemon juice, mustard, lemon zest, olive oil, salt and pepper.
Spoon the dressing over the salmon and spinach and sprinkle the minced chives or tarragon. Serve the rosemary potatoes with the salmon and spinach. Enjoy – this too may become one of your favorite easy salmon recipes!
