Easy Salmon

Seared and baked salmon filet. It was super simple.

You’ll need the following:
1 clove garlic
12 oz. (340 g) salmon filet (for the hungry)
fistful o’ baby spinach
salt and pepper to taste
fresh lemon (optional)

Start by lightly covering the salmon filet with salt and pepper to taste. Slice one clove of garlic and lightly saute. Then sear both sides of the salmon in the pan with the garlic. Place the salmon in a baking tray coated in olive oil. Set the oven to 375 F (190 C) and bake for 8 to 12 minutes with a metal baking tray. If it’s a glass baking tray, bake between 14 and 16 minutes.

If you don’t evenly coat the spinach with olive oil or dry it out a decent amount after washing, it’ll get a little crispy in the oven. I kind of like it that way.

That’s about it! Total prep time was probably around 30 minutes. If you have a rice cooker, just throw some rice in before doing anything else.
