Description

Single night just got real good, y’all.

Ingredients

  • 1 Tablespoon Butter
  • 2 teaspoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Divided
  • 1 cup Red And Yellow Cherry (or Grape) Tomatoes, Some Sliced In Half
  • 1 whole Fresh Salmon Fillet
  • 1 pinch Coarse Salt And Freshly Ground Pepper
  • 1 Tablespoon Fresh Herbs (I Used Thyme And Oregano)
  • 4 cups Fresh Spinach
  • 1 teaspoon Capers
  • 2 Tablespoons Fresh Lemon Juice

Preparation

Melt the butter and 1 teaspoon oil in a cast iron skillet. Once the foaming starts to subside, add the tomatoes and cook for about 1 minute. Add the salmon fillet, season with salt and pepper and sear on one side for 3 minutes. Carefully flip with a fish spatula and sear another 2 to 3 minutes. Add the herbs and toss the tomatoes around a bit. They’ll be getting some nice browned marks by now and breaking down a tad.

In the meantime, heat the remaining teaspoon of oil in another small skillet. Add the spinach and wilt, 2 minutes. Toss in a pinch of salt and pepper.

Serve salmon and tomatoes over the wilted spinach and garnish with the capers and a huge squeeze of lemon. You don’t even know.
