Ingredients:

1 10 oz filet of salmon

2-3 cups of spinach

1 garlic clove, sliced

4 sprigs of thyme

1 lemon, sliced, extra for serving if desired

pinch red pepper flakes

lemon pepper

salt and pepper

extra virgin olive oil

leftover or store bought mashed potatoes, optional

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Lay a long sheet of foil on the counter. Place the spinach in the center of the foil. Sprinkle the spinach with the garlic slices, red pepper flakes, salt, and pepper. Drizzle the spinach with a couple teaspoons of oil. Lay the salmon filet on top of the spinach. Drizzle more oil on the salmon and season with salt, pepper, and lemon pepper. Cover the salmon in lemon slices. Top the lemon with the thyme sprigs. These will perfume the salmon as it cooks in the foil package. Wrap the salmon up in a little package so it is sealed on all sides. Place the package on a baking sheet. Bake the salmon for 18 to 25 minutes, depending on how thick the fish is. 

To plate, I like to serve my salmon and spinach over mashed potatoes. You put the potatoes down first, then top with the wilted spinach, and salmon to finish. I garnish my salmon with extra lemon wedges and fresh thyme. Enjoy!
