Asian-Style Salmon & Spinach

All you need is some soy sauce to make this award-winning recipe (don’t ask who gave us the award). Pan-cook the salmon and spinach (use the same pan to cut down on dishes) and add some sauce. If you're feeling extra fancy, throw a little sesame oil and sesame seeds on there as well.
