Browning the nuts in a small amount of butter adds a rich flavor to this quick dish.
1 tablespoon butter
3 tablespoons pine nuts
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice, divided
4 cod or sole fillets (about 5 ounces each)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
3 teaspoons olive oil, divided
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 (10-ounce) packages fresh spinach, washed and trimmed
How to Make It
Melt butter in large, heavy nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add nuts and 2 tablespoons lemon juice, and stir; cook 1 minute or until nuts are golden brown. Remove from pan and set aside.
Season fish with salt and pepper. Add 2 teaspoons oil to skillet over medium-high heat. Add fish; cook 2 minutes per side, until it flakes. Transfer to platter; place nuts on top of fish. Tent with foil to keep warm.
Wipe skillet clean with a paper towel. Warm remaining 1 teaspoon oil over medium heat. Add garlic and spinach; cook 5 minutes, stirring until spinach wilts. Add remaining lemon juice; cook 1 minute to blend flavors. Place spinach on serving platter; top with fillets. Serve with lemon wedges.
