    Guacamole
    Sour cream
    Pesto
    Macadamia
    And coconut flour rolls
    Why not upgrade salmon lunch?

    As a slight alteration, for somewhat of a bigger portion (sidedish wise), you can do it as follows:
    Steam the spinach. You can use the microwave for fastest results (or whatever steaming method you prefer). Combine with half of the butter and a small dash of lemon juice.
    You can also discard the bell pepper and use a bit more spinach leaves. Red bell pepper contains 4x more carbs than spinach. 1/4 of a medium bell pepper equals roughly 30g.

    Perfect for an after the gym meal, so quick easy and delicious. I did make some tempered butter - lemon, which worked wonderfully with the salmon. Loved it - thank you

    I enjoyed this meal much more than I expected as it seemed too simple. However, I used your Herb Butter (with lemon & garlic) recipe with the salmon and it totally turned the tide. Made the whole plate so delicious. I haven't experimented with flavored butters because I thought flavouring would take away from the butter, an existing flavour favourite. But, that was not true and it turns out I'm a new convert to snazzy butters. I didn't imagine I would enjoy eating plain spinach either but its mild flavour was a good balance for the herb butter & salmon glamour combo. As for prep, it takes little time to assemble the herb butter and no more than 10 minutes to get the salmon prepared and cooked - I did stovetop with olive oil and butter for a browned salmon filet. It ticks the boxes, delicious, quick to prep, & healthful. Thank you!
