Salmon with Spinach and Orzo

The Alaskan salmon season is underway and I’m craving one of my classics, Salmon with Spinach and Orzo. Check out the video I did with Zoës Kitchen and make it for your crew tonight!

Salmon with Spinach and Orzo
1 tub Zoës Orzo Tabouli
6 cups fresh spinach packed
½ cup Kalamata olives
1 ½ pounds wild salmon fillet
2 lemons juiced and zested
2 cloves garlic pressed
4 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons fresh mint finely chopped
Salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In small bowl combine garlic, lemon juice and zest, olive oil, salt and pepper and whisk vigorously. Pour half of the mixture over the salmon and place it in the oven to roast for about 15-22 minutes, dust with mint when it comes out of the oven. In a separate bowl, toss spinach and olives with remaining dressing until well coated. Add Orzo Tabouli and mix gently. Serve spinach salad as the base for salmon fillets. Serves 4

I am a lifestyle advisor with a passion for connecting families Around the Table for mealtime. We are becoming a society that doesn’t even speak to each other, texting and internet relationships are the norm and it is impacting our culture. I believe the human connection as we know it, is in danger.

My mission is to inspire families, with a no nonsense approach to real food. Gathering Around the Table is key to the foundation of familial relationships. Sitting down to a meal is much more than breaking bread, it is a bonding ritual for families that actually protects our kids from all the dangerous stuff in the world. With tips and techniques we can all get our families Around the Table!
