Lemon & Garlic Spinach

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Chef Niki

This recipe was a side dish at a restraunt we ate at. I ate so much I couldn't finish my salmon. The spinach is not cooked so the flavor is very fresh. Since finding this recipe we have gone through 5 pounds of spinach!! (in 2 weeks)

Oh my! This was terrific! I halved the butter, lemon and olive oil, kept the garlic as written. It was just superb! Using the full amount of fats would have been too oily for my taste and more than 2 T of lemon juice would have been too overpowering. This is definitely going to the top of my favorite spinach recipes. Thank you sooo much.
