  3. Season with all dry ingredients.
  4. Drizzle olive oil over the spinach.

Season the Salmon
  1. Place salmon on top of the spinach.
  2. Season with all the Dry ingredients.
  3. Place pats of butter on each piece of fish about 2 inches apart.

  2. Flip and cook for 1 min
  3. Bake for 9 minutes at 450 degrees
  4. Broil for 3 minutes

Thai Chili Glaze the Salmon:
  1. As you turn the oven to broil, heat a pan large enough for at least 1 piece of salmon over medium heat
  2. Add butter, cooking wine (sherry), and mirin, and stir to mix.
  3. As the mixture starts to bubble, add sweet chili and stir constantly until the fish is added
  4. Remove fish from the oven and place in the pan with the Thai chili glaze seasoned side down first.
  5. Turn the temperature on the pan to low and allow fish to sit in the glaze for 30 seconds
  6. Turn the fish over and allow it to sit in the glaze for 1 minute

Pastor Atiba's Note: In transferring the fish from the baking sheet to the pan some of the spinach may attempt to travel with the fish. That's OK and is expected.

Plating Your Meal
  1. Put vermicelli in the middle of a large plate.
  2. Remove a portion of spinach from baking sheet and place on top of the vermicelli.
  3. Place a piece of salmon seasoned side up on the spinach (add additional glaze as desired).
