Pan Seared Salmon with Spinach and Mushrooms

Sharing is caring!

I love pan searing Salmon because it gives it such a delicious crisp and if made right, just cooked perfectly in the center. This Pan Seared Salmon with Spinach and Mushrooms also comes with veggies on the side so you don’t have to worry about making additional side dishes!

Healthy Meal

This dish is not only delicious but also healthy and diet friendly for you! It’s also a paleo salmon dish and a keto salmon dish too!

Salmon – This fish has got some super impressive health benefits! It’s rich in Omega-3 Fatty Acids, high in Vitamin B, and a great source of Potassium just to name a few.

Mushrooms – Mushrooms contain B vitamins as well as an antioxidant called selenium, which helps to support the immune system and prevent damage to cells and tissues. Now, specific mushrooms have different health benefits, but that’s pretty much true for all of them.

Spinach – There’ a reason Popeye ate so much spinach… it’s super healthy for you! It’s low in calories, while being an excellent source of vitamin K, vitamin A, magnesium, folate, manganese, iron, calcium, vitamin C, vitamin B2, potassium, and vitamin B6.

This dish is also very diet friendly! It’s gluten free, paleo, and keto. If you’re on a keto diet, and love salmon, you may also want to check out my article where I gathered over 100 delicious low carb / keto salmon recipes !

Ingredients

  • 1 lb salmon fillets
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 8 oz mushrooms, sliced
  • 6 oz spinach fresh
  • Salt and pepper, as desired
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp garlic powder

Instructions

Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a cast iron or large skillet on medium-high heat.

When the oil is hot, add salmon fillets to pan. Sear for about 4 minutes on medium-high heat. Flip the salmon fillets to the other side. Season with salt, and then let it cook for another 4 minutes or until cooked thoroughly.

Remove salmon from the skillet and set aside.

In the same pan, add another tablespoon of olive oil, minced garlic, and mushrooms. Cook stirring occasionally for about 2 minutes or until mushrooms are tender.

Add spinach to pan. If too much to add in the beginning, add it in batches.

Cook stirring occasionally until wilted, which only takes about 1 minute. Season with salt, pepper, paprika, and garlic powder.

Sometimes if I’m worried that the Salmon cooled down too much, I dump it back for a second in the pan to warm up before serving.
