Salmon Florentine

A local Italian restaurant franchise nearby makes an amazing salmon dish I am in love with.  A heaping serving of omega fatty acids atop a plate of phytonutrients-rich spinach sounds delicious to me.  It takes only a few ingredients and it's super simple to make.  Here's how I recreated the dish:

Salmon Florentine
  • 1/2 lb salmon
  • 1/2 cup white cooking wine
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 tbsp capers
  • 2 cups of fresh spinach
  • salt and pepper to taste
Season salmon with salt and pepper.  Bake at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until it easily flakes apart.  Meanwhile, heat wine in a small saucepan over medium high heat until it reduces.  Add lemon juice and capers.  When just about ready to serve, add spinach to the sauce and lightly wilt.  Remove from heat and serve over salmon.
