Pan Seared Salmon with Spinach and Mushrooms

AvatarPosted by

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 only a tasty one, but also a healthy one!

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. .

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.

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.
