Now that you have your ingredients, it's time to get cooking.
Welcome back! I'm sure you're ready to whip up this healthy, resolution-supporting meal. Just know before we start that salmon is a great base to work with. You can season it so many different ways, so if there's something in this recipe that doesn't work for you, feel free to experiment with other ingredients. It's also readily available at grocery stores and fish markets. 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 2.

Don't do what we did and forget this step until you're done assembling the dish. Whoops. 2. In a sauté pan, heat olive oil and add the chopped onion. Cook until the onion is soft. If you're feeling daring, toss in some garlic, too. 3. Add flour and spinach to the pan and cook everything until the liquid absorbs (about 5 minutes).

Try bringing this great dish to holiday parties or to set out for your own guests as an appetizer.
Matt and I have been married for about four months, and cooking is a little bit of an adventure for us. We aren't gourmet chefs or anything — just normal newlyweds trying to not starve to death. In this column, we'll share great recipes for all sorts of occasions, from a quick weeknight dinner to a holiday appetizer favorite.
