Craig's Amazing Signature Salmon and Spinach

This recipe comes to me from my very dear friend Craig.  He is an absolutely amazing cook and when he likes a recipe, I know it’s something I MUST try!!!! This recipe is, without a doubt, no exception!  It is the most delicious Salmon dish I’ve had in a very long time.  It’s pretty easy to put together and it’s something my whole family loved.  I cooked the salmon stove top in a skillet but it would be wonderful grilled as well.  I hope you give it a try and please let me know what you think. A HUGE thank you to Craig for this amazing recipe!!!
