“Delic! Kinda like Salmon over a wilted spinach salad. Added fiber aids digestion and promotes weight loss.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Have all ingredients measured and chopped prior to starting.
  2. In large skillet over medium-high heat, cook salmon for 7 minute each side until middle is barely cooked through. Remove and set aside.
  3. While salmon is cooking, add about 1/2" water to a large cooking pot. Add spinach. Cover and bring water to a boil over high heat. Once water is boiling, open the lid and check to see if spinach is reduced in volume and steamed. If not, let boil 1-2 minute more. Remove from heat and let stand, covered.
  4. Reduce heat on skillet to medium once salmon is done. In same skillet, combine oil, garlic and onion. Cook, stirring frequently for 3-5 min., until lightly brown.
  5. In a medium bowl, combine Glucomannan and water. Let stand to thicken about 2-3 minute.
  6. Add Glucomannan, yogurt, sherry, sage, parsley and lemon juice to skillet. Stir well. Add salt to taste. Cook until sauce becomes thick and creamy, about 7 minute.
  7. Add salmon back to skillet and reheat until completely cooked through, about 4-5 minute.
  8. Season the spinach with vinegar. Serve as a bed.
