Simple Salmon Weeknight Dinner – 2O Minutes – Gluten Free

Posted in : Gluten Free, leftovers, Main Course, Paleo, Quick and Easy, Recipes, seafood on by : poppop Tags: , , , , , , , ,

You will have this Simple Salmon Weeknight Dinner ready in 20 Minutes. Just put the butter in the skillet, rub the salmon filets with the “rub” and pan fry ’em.

We had some leftover baked potatoes so we had them as hash browns with onions  and did some quick and easy sautéed spinach (my favorite veggie).

So I multi-tasked and everything was ready in 20 minutes.

Mix the powdered garlic, dried basil, salt and pepper together.

About the dry “rub”, you could use any dry ingredients that YOU prefer. Like paprika, lemon pepper, dried sage and on and on. Even some lemon zest would work well.

Cut up the onion and the garlic and cut the potatoes in half lengthwise. Have your baby spinach standing by. It cooks so fast that you will add it to it’s skillet only after the salmon and the potatoes are ready.

Rub the fillets with the “rub”.

Put a skillet on at medium high for the onions with a couple of tablespoons of olive oil. Like Rachael Ray says Just “eyeball it”. Spread out the onions and lightly sprinkle with salt and pepper. Lay the potatoes out on the onions and squash them down.

You are not going to turn the potatoes over. Just leave them “face down” in the pan.

Put another skillet on at medium low and enough good extra virgin olive oil to cover the bottom. Add the garlic and spread it out so that it is all lying flat. Sprinkle a little salt, black pepper and red pepper flakes (optional on the red flakes).

Put the skillet for the salmon on at medium high and add the butter when the butter has stopped foaming put in the salmon filets. Cook them for about 2 to 5 minutes a side depending on how thick they are and how done that YOU like them. When the salmon is done turn the heat for it’s skillet off, but, leave the filets in the pan.

Add the spinach to the garlicky skillet and toss it with a pancake kinda flipper until it is as softened up as YOU like it. It really only takes a matter of seconds before it is wilted so watch and flip. Don’t let it get soggy.

Then serve up and enjoy your Simple Salmon Weeknight Dinner with a wedge of lemon for the salmon and the spinach.

We had an ice cold bottle of French Chablis with ours. An Italian Soave would also go good.
