- Place the fillets in the pan flesh side down. Cook for 2 minutes.
- Turn each fillet over and continue to cook for another 2 minutes.
- Transfer the fillets to a plate, cover loosely with foil, and allow to rest for 5 minutes before serving.
- While salmon is resting, heat up 1 tsp canola oil in same pan and toss in the finely chopped garlic. Cook briefly for 2 minutes. Add the spinach and cook until wilted.
