      Bacon Wrapped Salmon

      Serves 4


      4 6-oz pieces skinless salmon fillet

      1/2 teaspoon salt

      1/4 teaspoon black pepper

      4 teaspoons whole-grain mustard

      4 bacon slices

      2/3 cup shallots, sliced

      2 tablespoons olive oil

      2 cups baby spinach

      Method of Preparation:

      1.Preheat broiler and put broiler pan under broiler so that its rack is about 4 inches from heat.

      2.Pat fish dry and sprinkle with salt and pepper, then spread curved sides with mustard. Lay 1 bacon slice lengthwise along top of each fillet, tucking ends of bacon under fillet.

      3.Arrange fish, bacon sides down, on preheated rack of broiler pan and broil 3 minutes, then turn over and broil until fish is just cooked through and bacon is crisp, 3 to 4 minutes more.

      4.While salmon broils, cook shallots in oil in a 12-inch heavy skillet over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until beginning to brown, 3 to 5 minutes. Add spinach and cook, covered, stirring occasionally, until spinach is just wilted, 1 to 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
