Baked Salmon with Spinach and Strawberry Salsa

  • (3 ounce) salmon fillets, skin removed
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 pound strawberries, diced
  • 2 kiwifruits, peeled and diced
  • 1 cucumber, diced
  • 1 jalapeño, seeded and minced
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint leaves
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice, divided
  • 1 pound baby spinach leaves, rinsed but not dried

Preheat oven to 350°F. Place salmon on a baking sheet and sprinkle with lemon zest. Bake 15 to 18 minutes or until cooked through.

Meanwhile, place strawberries, kiwi, cucumber, jalapeño, mint and 1 tablespoon lemon juice in a medium bowl and toss until combined. Set aside. Heat a large, high-sided skillet over medium heat. Add spinach, with water still clinging to leaves, cover and cook 5 minutes or until wilted, stirring occasionally. Stir in remaining lemon juice. Divide spinach among plates. Top with salmon and salsa and serve.
