Method

  1. Heat the oil in a pan, season the salmon on both sides, then fry for 4 mins each side until golden and the flesh flakes easily. Leave to rest on a plate while you cook the spinach.
  2. Tip the leaves into the hot pan, season well, then cover and leave to wilt for 1 min, stirring once or twice. Spoon the spinach onto plates, then top with the salmon. Gently heat the crème fraîche in the pan with a squeeze of the lemon juice, the capers and parsley, then season to taste. Be careful not to let it boil. Spoon the sauce over the fish, then serve with lemon wedges.

Tried this tonight for tea. Today was the first day of my new healthy eating regime. Recipe was easy to follow but next time i would use less lemon in the sauce

What a lovely recipe. Made the sauce in 5 minutes this afternoon and wasn't sure about the flavours, but, once warmed through and served with the salmon and spinach it was great. We had ours with couscous (cheated and had an ainsley harriet one!!) and it worked really well.

It is as easy and as tasty as it looks. I couldn't believe that the dish I cooked looked just like the photo. My girlfriend and I had this as a quick mid-week meal and we were so surprised at it's flavours and simplicity. Definitely worth a keeper!

Great recipe, just don't go too mad with the lemon as can be a little tart.

This receipe is perfect if you are on a diet. I am with slimming world and if you pan fry the salmon with fry light and use the half fat creme fresh it is perfect. I have never tried capers before, and I must admit they taste delicious with this receipe. My husband didnt think he would like capers, but he did. I am just printing off a copy of the receipe for my mother in law as she wants to cook it!

lovely - served it with a baked sweet potato. Think I either put too much lemon in the sauce though, or maybe heated it too quickly, as it started to almost go a bit lumpy as it cooled...still tasted nice though!

Yummy! so so quick and easy, although might try with a different kind of fish in future- salmon is expensive for a student! would also love to try the sauce in a jacket potato, perhaps with some tuna...

Very simple and tasty - initally I tried the sauce and was not sure on the taste and texture of the sauce but once served with the rest of the meal it was lovely and complemented all flavours

tasty, I loved the crispy salmon this gave - we usually grill or bake ours. I wouldn't recommend doing this all in the same pan tho as the recipe suggests - the spinach took longer than a minute to wilt (and I had to do it in two goes because there was so much of it), and then heating the sauce thru took a couple of minutes, so the salmon and spinach had gone a little cold.

Definitely liked the sauce tho and will be making it again for other fish dishes.
