fast.cook's picture
  Butter/Margarine 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Onion 1 Large, chopped
  Garlic 1 Clove (5 gm), minced or pressed
  Spinach 2 Pound, stems removed, leaves rinsed
  Salmon steaks 4 (Each About 1 Inch Thick)
  Dry dill weed 1 Teaspoon
  Lemon wedges 4
  Salt To Taste
  Pepper To Taste

Melt 3 tablespoons of the butter in a 5- to 6-quart pan over medium heat.
Add onion and garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until onion is very soft about 15 minutes.
Meanwhile, cut spinach leaves into 1-inch-wide strips.
Stir spinach with water that clings to leaves into onion mixture.
Cover pan, increase heat to medium-high, and cook until spinach is wilted and bright green in color 2 to 4 minutes.
Uncover and cook until liquid has evaporated, stirring occasionally.
Remove from heat; season to taste with salt and pepper.
Transfer to a warm rimmed platter and keep warm.
While spinach is cooking, rinse salmon and pat dry; then place in a lightly greased baking pan.
Broil 4 inches below heat for 5 minutes.
Turn salmon over; sprinkle with salt, pepper, and dill weed, then dot with remaining 1 tablespoon butter.
Continue to broil until fish is just opaque but still moist in thickest part; cut to test about 5 more minutes.
To grill salmon: Place steaks on a lightly greased range-top grill; cook for time specified in broiling instructions above, turning and seasoning with salt, pepper, dill, and butter after 5 minutes.
