How to Make the Most Delicious Salmon

You know it's healthy, low in calories, and full of good fats, but did you know that in less than twenty minutes, you can make the most delicious salmon? It's easy, nutrient-rich, and so exciting that it will blow your company away!

Start with two salmon fillets that are about two inches wide and an inch or an inch and a half thick. I usually buy the kind that still have skin on the bottom, but that's not important.

Besides, you will need two regular cans of petite diced tomatoes, 2 cans of artichoke hearts in water, a jar of capers, a half cup of Greek olives, a bag of baby spinach, crumbled feta cheese, extra-virgin olive oil, garlic, salt, and pepper.

Use a large pan with a lid, over medium heat. Add one tablespoon of olive oil and 4 cloves of garlic. After peeling the garlic cloves, slice them or mash them. Do not let them brown or they will turn bitter. After a couple of minutes, add the canned tomatoes, including the juice. Drain the artichoke hearts and cut into quarters. Add to the tomatoes.

While the tomatoes and artichokes are hanging out, slice the Greek olives in half, lengthwise. Drain and measure out a quarter cup of capers. Amounts don't have to be exact, so don't stress over this.

Once the mixture is slowly bubbling, add the salmon fillets on top. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste. Cover and continue cooking on medium heat for ten minutes. While the salmon is cooking, steam or boil the spinach in a small amount of water. It only takes a couple of minutes and it will wilt down to a tiny amount. Use two bags if you desire more.

In ten minutes, the salmon will be ready. To serve, spread some drained, cooked spinach on a dinner plate and place the salmon on top. Cover with the tomato-artichoke sauce. Sprinkle some feta cheese on top if desired.

At this point, stand back and watch as you amaze yourself and your guests. In less than twenty minutes, you have prepared the most delicious salmon.
