    1/2 lbs. salmon

    1/2 tsp. paprika

    sea salt & black pepper to taste

    1/2 tbsp. butter

    2 clove garlic

    1 c. brown mushrooms

    1 med. tomato

    1 c. spinach

    2 tsp. lemon juice

    1/2 tbsp. butter


Pat salmon filets with paper towel to remove excess moisture. Season with paprika, salt, and pepper.

Place large skillet over medium heat. Add ½ tablespoon butter; add minced garlic and sliced mushrooms.

Cook until mushrooms and garlic are slightly crispy. Decrease heat to medium-low; add tomatoes and cook for 1-2 minutes. Decrease heat to low; add spinach and cook for 1 minute, until wilted.

Remove veggies from the heat and divide between 2 plates. Cover while you cook the salmon.

Heat the same medium skillet on medium-high; add ½ tablespoon butter once skillet is very hot. Place salmon fillets skin side down onto pan and sear for 4-5 minutes, without moving them. Flip salmon fillets and let them cook for another 4-5 minutes.

Top veggies with 1 salmon filet each and drizzle dish with lemon juice.
