Asian Salmon on Spinach - Ina Garten Fridays

I believe this is the fourth month of Ina Garten Fridays, started by the lovely and vivacious Alyce from More Time at the Table.  We link, once a month, on the first Friday of the month.  This month, we are making appetizers, September is side dishes, October is main and November is dessert.  If you would like to join us, please contact Alyce at  More Time at the Table.

Welcome to out newest member, Peggy from Pantry Revisited.  Go on over and say, "Hello!"

I decided to make salmon and cut the steaks into smaller pieces, put them on delicious sesame spinach and served with a flourish.  Delicious.

Instead of grilling the salmon, I baked it and served it with some of the marinade.

Asian Salmon - adapted from 2001, Barefoot Contessa Parties!,


2 salmon steaks

For the marinade:

1 tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons  olive oil
1/4 teaspoon minced garlic

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Cut  the salmon crosswise into 4 equal pieces. 

Whisk together the mustard, soy sauce, olive oil, and garlic in a small bowl. Drizzle half of the marinade onto the salmon and allow it to sit for 10 minutes.

Place the salmon in a baking pan.  Discard the marinade the fish was sitting in.

Bake for 15 - 20 minutes.

Place cooked spinach on a plate. Put salmon on top of mound of spinach and sprinkle some of the marinade over the fish.  Serve on individual plates and do enjoy every bite.

Check out what other members made this month.  Ladies, please forgive me if I left anyone out.  Let me know and I will add you to the list.
