Salmon Steamed Over Spinach

Tonight, I steamed a salmon fillet over spinach and onions. I stirred in kalamata olives at the end.

I heated minced garlic in olive oil over medium high heat, until it sizzled. Then, I mixed in a large chopped onion. I seasoned the onion with salt and pepper and sauteed it for five minutes, until the onion was translucent.

I mixed in six cups of seasoned spinach with a quarter cup of water drizzled on top. The salmon fillet (also seasoned) was placed on top of the spinach. I covered the saute pan and lowered the heat slightly. The recipe called for 1.5 lbs of fish, but there were only two of us, so I used 0.65 lbs.

It steamed for 15 minutes, and I checked it for doneness. I stirred a quarter cup of chopped kalamata olives into the spinach and onions, and served it up. We had chocolate-frosted (kosher for Passover) brownies for dessert.

My wife and I both agreed it was delicious. Maybe, I'd cut back on the amount of onion next time.

Mmm. I love the addition of kalamata olives. I also like to roast chicken with olives.

I had a small bowl of leftovers for brunch today, with a pot of L.L. Bean "Foggy Morning" blueberry coffee.
