Salmon with Cheesy Spinach

Salmon is loaded with omega 3 and very good for the body. Honey and I love salmon. We like salmon in our fried rice, baked salmon, or grilled salmon. For this dish, I am serving salmon with warm spicy basmathi rice.

Ingredients for the salmon:
2 pieces salmon
1 packet spinach
1 tablespoon chopped garlic
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon soy sauce
2 tablespoon cottage cheese
1 tablespoon olive oil

Ingredients to prepare the rice:
1 cup basmathi rice
2 cups water
1 teaspoon turmeric powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cumin powder
1 teaspoon coriander powder
1 teaspoon ginger powder
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon parseley flakes

Drizzle soy sauce on the salmon. Put to the side.
In a skillet, heat olive oil. Add chopped garlic. Add spinach and cook until wilted. Add black pepper. Mix well and turn off the stove. Set it aside.

Cook rice in rice cooker. Mix all ingredients. Turn on the rice cooker.

Add cottage cheese to the spinach. Mix well.

Take a baking dish. Paste spinach to the side of the salmon. You could also put the spinach right on top of the salmon. Lay salmon in the baking dish.
Bake the salmon at 400 degree F for about 20 minutes.

Serve warm with rice. You could also serve this salmon with mashed potato, baked potato and steamed vegetables. Enjoy!
