Barbara Lynch's Seared Salmon with White Beans & Spinach

"You can make a great meal with four brilliant ingredients," says Boston's beloved chef (and boxing and yoga devotee) Barbara Lynch who oversees the menus at refined European restaurants No. 9 Park and Menton, and the more casual trattoria Sportello. Case in point: this satisfying salmon dish, replete with omega-3s, protein, and vitamins. The secret sauce? A briny Olive-Lemon Relish that's delectable on any fish, bruschetta, or even a turkey sandwich.

    T grapeseed or canola oil

    salmon fillets, 5-6oz each, preferably skin on

  • Olive-Lemon Relish (optional)

Directions

1. Heat 2T EVOO in a large nonstick skillet on med-high. Add spinach, toss gently. Once wilted, pour out any excess liquid. 2. Lower heat to med-low, then add beans & 2T EVOO; heat for about 5 min.
