  • 1 medium sliced red bell pepper
  • 16 oz frozen spinach or 2 cups of fresh spinach
  • 2 tsp Knorr Chicken Flavor Bouillon

Sauté Salmon

  • Rinse salmon filet and pat dry.
  • Using a cutting board, slice salmon into rectangular shapes or a manageable size for sautéing in a skillet.
  • On both sides, sprinkle salmon with Italian seasoning, lemon pepper, paprika, and creole seasoning.
  • On medium heat, drizzle olive oil in a nonstick skillet to help keep salmon from sticking.
