This was excellent! And easy! I might crush the ginger & garlic into a paste next time, as my mincing skills were not up to par for this. Great way to liven up spinach (even my DH ate it).

Directions

  1. In a large nonstick skillet, pile the spinach and turn the heat to high.
  2. Using tongs, gently and continuously toss the spinach over the heat until it's all wilted (they'll turn a darker green), 2 to 3 min.
  3. Don't overcook; they should collapse but still have some body.
  4. Transfer them to a colander and let any excess liquid drip away.
  5. Wipe the skillet clean if necessary.
  6. In the same skillet, heat the butter and oil over medium-low heat.
  7. When the butter is melted, add the garlic and ginger and sauté until softened and fragrant, about 2 min.
  8. Add the orange juice, turn the heat to high, and reduce the liquid to a glazy consistency, no more than 1 min.
  9. ;you'll have 1-1/2 to 2 Tbs.
  10. left in the pan.
  11. Turn the heat down to low, immediately add the drained spinach and the salt, and toss thoroughly to coat.
  12. Remove the pan from the heat.
  13. Serve hot from the pan or slightly cooled.
