Baked Wild Salmon served on Sauteed Spinach with Pistachios

 

Serves: 4

Prep time: 

I always give myself a few hours of time to marinate fish with olive oil, garlic, lemon juice and zest

Cook time:

30-35 minutes

Ingredients:

1.5 lbs wild salmon

2 tablespoons olive oil

2 tablespoons lemon juice

1 tablespoon lemon zest

4 cups of organic spinach, rinsed

2  cloves garlic, minced

1/4 cup pistachios

1/4 teaspoon pink himalayan salt

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

1 cup wild rice served with dinner

Instructions: 

Marinate salmon with 1 tablespoon drizzled olive oil, 1 clove minced garlic, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, 1 tablespoon lemon zest and a handful of chopped pistachios.

 

Place in refrigerator for a few hours. Remove from refrigerator and let salmon warm to room temperature. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and bake for about 25-30 minutes or until salmon is completely pink and flavors begin to bubble through.

While salmon is baking, prepare wild rice. 2 cups of water to 1 cup of rice ratio.

In a large skillet pan, heat up 1 tablespoon olive oil, 1 clove minced garlic. Add spinach and perhaps a touch of water. Let spinach saute until everything moistens and cooks.
