Salmon and Spinach with Dill and Lemon Sauce

Julie Ann Keene


Serve over rice or couscous, though I prefer it with couscous. You can also use any veggies you want, but I find this an easy way to fancy up canned spinach (and garlic and spinach go really well together). We all have those cans of spinach lurking in the back of the pantry! This way they actually taste good! Lol We love garlic in our house, but you can adjust to suit your taste. I didn't include the rice or couscous cooking time.
