Poached Salmon with Creamed Spinach Sauce

Serves 4

Salmon is so good and quite versatile. This recipe for poached salmon, served with a creamy spinach sauce, is quick and easy enough for a weeknight dinner, but makes a lovely presentation for a special occasion or entertaining.


Place the wine, garlic, shallots, water, salt and pepper in a large skillet. Bring to a boil. Add the salmon, skinned-side down. Reduce heat to medium; cover and simmer until salmon is cooked, about 4 minutes depending on thickness. Remove salmon from pan. Add the spinach to the broth and bring back to a boil. Add the lemon juice, cream and nutmeg. Cook until the mixture has reduced by half, about 3 minutes. Taste for seasoning. Return the salmon and any accumulated juices to the pan; cook just for 1 minute to reheat. Spoon some of the creamed spinach on individual serving plates. Top with the salmon, skinned-side down, and drizzle with additional sauce. Serve immediately.
