This Mexican-inspired recipe combines the richness of coffee-glazed salmon with the freshness of spinach, creating a flavorful and nutritious dish for four people.


  • 4 salmon fillets
  • 4 cups of fresh spinach
  • 1/2 cup of brewed coffee
  • 1 tablespoon of brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of chili powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Begin by preheating your grill to medium-high heat.
  2. In a small bowl, mix the brewed coffee, brown sugar, and chili powder to create the flavorful glaze for the salmon.
  3. Season the salmon fillets with salt and pepper, then generously brush the coffee glaze over each fillet.
  4. Place the glazed salmon fillets on the grill and cook for about 4-5 minutes on each side, or until the salmon is cooked to your desired level of doneness.
  5. While the salmon is grilling, in a skillet, wilt the spinach over medium heat until it is just tender.
  6. Once the salmon is cooked, plate each fillet alongside a generous portion of sautéed spinach.
  7. Serve immediately and enjoy the delightful combination of coffee-glazed salmon and fresh spinach.
