1. Prepare fresh Spinach with Salmon Step by Step
Let’s start with spinach: Please wash spinach several times in cold water. Packaged spinach is often rinsed with chlorinated water to ensure a longer shelf life. Therefore, even if the spinach looks clean, it is essential to wash it sufficiently again. After all, the spinach should make you happy and not disinfect you. After washing, dry the spinach on a sieve. Spinach wash like star chef: Take a look at my contribution – how to prepare leaf salad and wash it properly.
I use one or two shallots or yellow onions and some garlic as basis for the spinach preparation. I dice both ingredients finely and sweat them glassy in a large pot. Next deglaze with a little dry white wine, now it’s time to prepare the spinach, which may now also be in the pot. If the spinach is in the pot, quickly put the lid on the pot and boil over high heat for about 2 minutes. This process ensures that the spinach collapses quickly and immediately cooks quickly…and retains its green colour.
Spinach comes green on my plate and not grey, short cooking time is important for leaf spinach!
2. Salmon with Spinach Cream Sauce, now it will be delicious!
Spinach with cream sauce is made with me in a pot. That is practical, so it goes on… the spinach has now collapsed in the pot due to the heat and has lost its salad-like volume. Next, I add cream or soy cream and boil the creamed spinach vigorously once. NOW season with salt, pepper, some cayenne pepper and nutmeg. In the cooking video I show a different order, the cream is put into the pot before the spinach. Both variations work wonderfully!
The sauce is now almost ready and the spinach should wait without lid for the salmon, which we prepare now.
3. Finish Salmon with creamed Spinach, prepare Tips for Salmon and finish the Sauce
You can now prepare the salmon in 3 ways:
3.1. Fry the Salmon in the Pan
Fry the salmon in a frying pan: add the dried salmon without skin and fry it in a pan on both sides with a little oil or without oil for a few minutes. Remove the heat and continue cooking the fish until the core is no longer glassy but still very juicy. Season with salt and pepper and arrange on top of the spinach.
3.2. Poach or simmer the Salmon in the Cream Sauce
Simply place the salmon in the cream sauce and cook it standing next to the stove with or without a lid. This is a variant of poaching, the salmon is then not quite as pretty as roasted.
3.3. Prepare Salmon in the Oven
Put the salmon dry on a plate, brush with olive oil or melted butter, season with salt and pepper and cook in the oven at 120 °C hot air for about 12 minutes. This variant of salmon in the oven is my favourite because there are hardly any odours and I also heat the plates in the oven.
3.4 Sauce Tips from the Star Kitchen to Cream Sauce to Salmon
I now pass the cream sauce through a fine sieve into an extra pot. Bring the sauce to the boil quickly with the salmon, stir some corn starch in cold water to bind the sauce and add to the boiling cream sauce. Finally mix the sauce with cold butter and truffle oil. Squeeze out the spinach and put it on the plate, add the salmon fillet and finish the dish with the sauce.

I like to refine my cream sauce with salmon with a little white truffle oil. This gives the dish a fine, light truffle taste and puts it in the category of star cuisine.
