Lately, I’ve been obsessed with those quick recipe videos that pop-up on my Facebook feed from sites like Delish, Tastemade or Food52. One of my favorite weeknight dinners that I’ve actually made is inspired by Delish’s recipe for Garlic-Lemon Salmon.  It’s light, refreshing and packed with flavor!


  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Kosher salt
  • 2 6-oz salmon fillets
  • 2 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/3 c. freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • Lemon zest from 1 lemon
  • 1 lemon, thinly sliced
  • 3 c. baby spinach or arugula


  • In a large skillet over medium heat, add olive oil. Add salmon and cook until golden, about 5 minutes per side. Transfer to plate.
  • Add remaining olive oil to skillet. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, 1 minute, then add lemon juice and zest and bring to a simmer. Stir in lemon slices and spinach or arugula and let cook down until wilted, 2 minutes.
  • Return salmon to skillet and combine.
  • Add freshly ground pepper and a pinch of salt.
  • Serve over a bed of quinoa or rice.
