Number of Servings: 4


    2 portion-size yams
    1 lemon, halved, divided
    2 portions salmon fillet (about 12 oz.)
    2 tsp. olive oil
    8 oz. fresh mushrooms, sliced
    1 bag (5 oz.) baby spinach leaves


Preheat oven to 450 F. Place yams on a baking sheet and bake until tender, about 45 minutes. After yams have baked for about 25 minutes, preheat grill to medium. Squeeze half the lemon over salmon fillets and brush with olive oil. Place salmon on grill and cook until opaque throughout, about 5 minutes each side. While salmon is cooking, lightly coat a large skillet with butter-flavored cooking spray and place over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms and sauté for 3 minutes. Add spinach and sauté until wilted, about 3 more minutes. Place a portion of salmon on a bed of spinach along with a portion-size yam on each plate. Squeeze remaining lemon over salmon and spinach. Serve and enjoy!

    I boiled the sweet potato with an apple and some nutmeg and a bit of milk and then whirled it in a food processor for a smooth puree. On top of that I put the spinach (no mushrooms) and then the grilled salmon with a touch of Asian chili sauce with pineapple. This was like eating in a restaurant. - 2/3/09
