Pesto Salmon with Shrimp and Wilted Spinach

shrimp and salmon

I must give credit to my boyfriend Nick for this idea. This is something he made for me a while back and it was amazing. This go around, I just added some shrimp and spinach! Salmon: Season salmon filet with olive oil, salt and pepper. Cook over medium heat a few minutes per side. Once the salmon is almost done, brush the top side with a generous portion of basil pesto (homemade or store bought). Cook an additional few minutes. I like my salmon medium-well to well done, personally. Shrimp: Peeled shrimp works best for this. Saute 1/2 pound shrimp with approximately a few tb of butter, juice of 1 lemon, and 1 clove of garlic. I also seasoned them with some salt and pepper. Once cooked through, top the salmon. In the future, these would also be good tossed in the pesto as well! Spinach: Saute spinach with garlic, lemon juice and salt and pepper. Adjust ingredients depending on your taste. The spinach will wilt down tremendously, so start out with a generous portion!
