In keeping with lighter recipes to take you through the holidays, I thought I’d do another post about fish and greens, like yesterday’s arctic char with arugula dish. This one is light, but hearty and juicy. The sesame seeds evaporate a bit in the foil, but the flavor is still potent. Using foil will also allow for more of a poached texture than a baked texture.

What you’ll need:
1 lb salmon, sliced vertically
1 cup baby spinach
3 campari tomatoes, diced
2 tbsp sesame seeds
2 tbsp olive oil
Balsamic glaze

Preheat oven to 500.

Place the salmon in aluminum foil. Coat the fish with the sesame seeds, then top with the spinach and tomatoes. Pour in the oil and seal the aluminum foil around the salmon to close.

Put the package of salmon onto a cookie sheet and bake for 6-8 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool for 2-3 minutes. Then, plate the salmon and drizzle the balsamic glace on top to serve.
