Easy Skillet Salmon Piccata with Spinach- Keto and Low Carb

Easy Skillet Salmon Piccata with Spinach - Keto and Low Carb

My favorite way to cook salmon is to sear it in a screaming hot skillet and smother in a butter, lemon, white wine and caper sauce and that is what this recipe will give you!  I sauté fresh spinach leaves in the juices of the salmon, with a little piccata sauce left behind in the pan.  The flavor is absolutely amazing.  This dish can be made in under 20 minutes and dinner is served!

Ingredients

6 pieces of fresh salmon (about 2″ wide/4 ounces each)

10 ounces fresh spinach

Juice and zest of 1 lemon

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped 

1/4 cup butter

2 tablespoons capers

1 tablespoon white wine (I used Pint Grigio)

1 tablespoon olive oil

Salt and pepper to taste

Preparation

Heat a skillet to medium high heat and add in the olive oil.
