2 salmon fillets skin on (about 1 lb.)
Salt and pepper to season
1 tbsp. olive oil
1 tbsp. butter
3 cloves garlic finely diced
4 oz. roasted red peppers diced
4 cups fresh baby spinach
1/2 cup Half & Half or heavy cream
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes or to taste
1/4 cup chopped parsley
Salt and pepper to taste

Season the salmon fillets with salt and pepper.
Heat the oil in a medium non-stick skillet over medium heat. Cook the salmon fillets flesh-side down first, for 5 minutes on each side, or until cooked to your liking. Once cooked, remove them from the pan and set aside.
To the same pan, add butter and garlic. Cook for 1 minute, add the roasted peppers, and cook for 2 more minutes.
Add the spinach and allow it to wilt.
Reduce the heat to low, and add Half & Half, Parmesan, red pepper flakes, salt, and pepper. Stir and bring to a simmer.
