Broiled Salmon with Dill Sauce over Spinach Greens
By The Gourmet Farm Girl
1-1 1/2 pound salmon fillet
6 cups fresh spinach
1 cup half-n-half
1 tablespoon dried dill
2 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon flour
1/4 cup white wine
salt and pepper to taste
Pre-heat oven broiler
Place the spinach in a steamer pan or large sauce pan with 1/4 cup water; set aside
In a medium size saute pan, melt the butter, whisk in the flour till smooth; add the half-n-half and wine. Turn heat to simmer and stir occasionally till sauce begins to thicken 7-10 minutes; once thick stir in the dried dill; continue to simmer for an additional 1-2 minutes.
While sauce is simmering:
Rinse in cold water the salmon fillet and cut into 3-4 serving size pieces; salt and pepper.
In a well seasoned iron skillet or a heavy non-stick (oven proof) skillet, drizzle 2-3 tablespoons olive oil. Heat oil over medium to medium high heat; add the salmon fillets. Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side; remove from heat and place under broiler for an additional 2-3 minutes till lightly brown.
While salmon is cooking; steam the spinach till wilted and tender; 5-7 minutes
Remove salmon fillets from the skillet and place on top of the wilted greens; pour dill sauce over the salmon; garnish with a fresh sprig of dill or sprinkle with dried dill.
