Creamy Dairy-free Dijon Salmon & Spinach

Ingredients for 4 servings:

* Optional Substitution Note

  • 1 teaspoon olive oil (or avocado oil)
  • 24oz (four 6oz) salmon filets, center cut (recommended)
  • pinch of sea salt & pepper
  • 1 tablespoon garlic, minced
  • 1 cup full fat coconut milk
  • 4 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 cup chicken broth
  • 2 teaspoons dried thyme
  • 1 tablespoon arrowroot mixed with 1 tablespoon water
  • 5 cups raw spinach
  • Garnish
    • fresh parsley


Step 1

Season salmon with sea salt & pepper.

Step 2

Set a nonstick skillet on medium-high heat. Once hot, add the oil and place the salmon skin side up. Allow it to sear for 2 to 3 minutes, then flip it over to sear for NO MORE than 1 minute, then remove them from the skillet for later. Note: it is ok if the salmon is not fully cooked.

Step 3

Reduce the heat to medium in the skillet. Add garlic, coconut milk, dijon and thyme. Stir and bring to a light simmer (and reduce heat if needed). Taste and season to taste with sea salt & pepper as needed. Mix the arrowroot with water, then add to the skillet. Quickly stir to avoid any clumping.

Step 4

Reduce heat to low and add raw spinach. Continue stirring and folding the spinach in the sauce until it wilts. Then add the salmon back to the skillet and bring it to a very light simmer. Allow everything to cook together for 3 to 5 minutes, then remove from the heat.

Step 5

Allow to cool slightly and thicken, then enjoy! And you can enjoy this cold the next day as well!

About Kevin - author


Hey, I'm Kevin

My name is Kevin. My life changed when I realized that healthy living is a lifelong journey, mainly won by having a well-balanced diet and maintaining an active lifestyle.

By experimenting in the kitchen and sharing my meals on Tumblr, I learned healthy eating is not boring! By making a few adjustments to my favorite foods, I could design a diet that could help me achieve my wellness goals while satisfying my desire for BANGIN food! 😅 Now I try to help people around the world realize that same level of freedom in eating regardless of budget. Welcome, let's #DemocratizeWellness together!
