Salmon Skillet

Is there anything salmon can’t do? It is high in heart-healthy omega-3s and lends itself to simple preparation techniques. And salmon also looks beautiful on the dinner table. — Taste of Home Test Kitchen, Milwaukee, Wisconsin

    4 servings


  • 1 pound small red potatoes, quartered
  • 2 packages (6 ounces each) fresh baby spinach
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons garlic salt, divided
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
