Roasted Salmon with Mushrooms and Spinach

Jessica Braider
I love those recipes where the whole meal cooks together in one pan or pot. This is also great with a crusty baguette dipped in the pan juices. Scramble recipe tester Nikki Wolf said, “This was one of my favorite meals I've made in a while! So simple to put together and yet it looks and tastes like it took some effort!”
Cook Time 30 mins
Total Time 30 mins
Servings 4 servings

Ingredients
  

  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 cloves garlic minced, about 1 tsp.
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/8 tsp. black pepper
  • 6 - 8 portobello mushroom caps sliced
  • 8 - 10 oz. baby spinach
  • 1 lb. salmon fillet use wild Alaskan salmon if possible

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
  • In a large measuring cup, whisk together the oil, vinegar, garlic, salt and pepper.
  • Put the mushrooms and spinach in a metal roasting pan or rectangular baking dish.
  • Pour 3/4 of the dressing over the vegetables and toss to coat them evenly.
  • Put the salmon on top of the vegetables and pour the remaining dressing over it. Roast it for 12 – 15 minutes until the fish is just cooked through. Cut the salmon into 4 pieces and serve it immediately over the spinach and mushrooms.

Slow Cooker Directions

  • Cut the salmon to fit in the slow cooker, if needed. In a large measuring cup, whisk together the oil, vinegar, garlic, salt and pepper. Put the mushrooms and spinach in the slow cooker and pour 3/4 of the dressing over the vegetables and toss to coat them evenly. Put the salmon on top of the vegetables and pour the remaining dressing over it. Cook on low for 5 - 6 hours, or on high for 3 - 4 hours. (Slow cooker cooking times may vary—Get to know your slow cooker and, if necessary, adjust cooking times accordingly.)

Notes

Do Ahead or Delegate: Peel the garlic, make the marinade, slice the mushrooms.
Scramble Flavor Booster: Double the garlic and serve the salmon with plenty of freshly ground pepper.
Tip: Reach for vinegar!  Vinegars have been found to be high in both antioxidants and antimicrobial properties.  (Antimicrobials slow the spread of bacteria and viruses.)  Adding a drizzle of vinegar to your dish can accentuate the flavor of the food with no added sodium or calories.
