Ingredients

3 Tbs
 Olive oil
3 Tbs
 Lemon juice
3 Tbs
 Parsley, fresh; minced
2 lb
 Spinach, fresh
 Garlic clove; pressed
1 1/2 lb
 Salmon fillets; skinless
1 large
 Onion, yellow; finely chopt
 
 Salt
 
 Pepper



Instructions:

Wash greens thoroughly and remove tough stems; cut leaves into thin strips and set aside. Rinse salmon and pat dry. Hold knife at an angle and slice salmon into 4 or 8 equal pieces. Place each piece of fish between 2 pieces of waxed paper, the cut sides against paper, and pound gently with a mallet or rolling pin to create slices of even thickness (about 1/8 inch thick). Season scallops of salmon with salt and pepper if desired. Heat 2 tablespoons of the olive oil in a
5- to 6-quart pan over medium-high heat. Add the onion and stir until tender but not brown, about 4 minutes. Stir in the garlic and greens; cook, stirring, until the greens are just tender, about 3 minutes. Transfer greens to a bowl and keep warm. Heat about 1 teaspoon of the remaining oil in the pan, or in a 10- to 12-inch frying pan, over medium-high heat. Add scallops to pan in a single layer (you will cook salmon in several batches) and cook until edges turn opaque, 20
to 30 seconds. Turn scallops and cook other side about 15 seconds. Lift cooked salmon from pan and keep warm. Repeat with remaining scallops, adding additional oil if necessary to prevent sticking. When scallops are cooked, add the lemon juice to the pan and scrape the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon to loosen browned bits. Stir in the parsley and set aside. To serve, divide greens among warmed plates, top with 1 or 2 of the salmon scallops, pour the pan sauce over each serving.
