Pan Seared lemon butter salmon

This is a really good recipe made up of different recipes I found online. It's not too fattening either! Butter can be substituted for olive oil.
You will need:
1 filet of salmon cut in 2-4 pieces
1 1/2 Tbsp butter
1/2 lemon
1/4 tsp minced garlic
dried or fresh Rosemary
salt to taste (I prefer seasoning salt)
pepper to taste
1 package of baby spinach (rinsed)
1 tsp butter

  1. Cut and season the fish with ingredients 5-7

  2. Melt 1 tbsp of butter on med high heat with the garlic

  3. squeeze the lemon in the butter

  4. Add fish skin side down for about 5 mins; flip and do the same for the other side until golden brown (if butter dries up add remaining 1/2tbs butter).

  5. Remove fish from pan, put aside

  6. Squeeze remaining lemon juice on fish (optional)

  7. Without cleaning out pan add the 1 tsp butter

  8. Add spinach

  9. Cook until wilted

  10. place fish on top of spinach and serve

Interesting fish facts:
