You will love this for your next special meal, I promise! My 16-year-old son is my most brutal food critic, and when I made this last night, he said it was "exceptional" and should be served in a fine restaurant. Ha, ha. Tons of yummy flavors.

How to Make Scrumptious Salmon with Grapes & Wine


  1. Heat oven to 300 degrees. Pat salmon dry. Mix honey & dijon mustard & brush on salmon generously. Sprinkle Italian seasonings (or choice of seasoning) on top of salmon w/ salt & pepper.
  2. Heat 2 TBS of olive oil in large skillet. Brown both sides of salmon, about 5 minutes total. (If skillet is smaller, brown in batches.)
  3. Mix 2 TBS olive oil & garlic. Toss fresh spinach (uncooked) with olive oil & garlic. Top with a dash of sea salt. Lay this in a large baking dish.
  4. When salmon is browned, lay salmon on top of spinach in the baking dish. Loosely cover top w/ aluminum foil. Bake for 10 minutes. Take aluminum foil off & bake for another few minutes until the salmon is to your liking. (3-5 minutes).
  5. As salmon is baking, toast the walnuts for about 3 minutes in same skillet used for browning your salmon. Add the grape halves, & toss gently until the grapes are tender. Then add your wine, some Italian spices, bring to a boil & then lower to simmer & reduce. Add the Italian parsley about 2 minutes before you are ready to turn off heat.
  6. Take salmon out of oven. Plate each piece of salmon with the baked spinach underneath. Top with the grape wine sauce.
  7. Dig in & enjoy the raves!!! :)
