Add the salmon, skin-side down, and cook for 5 minutes or until the skin is crispy. Turn the salmon and cook for a further 2-3 minutes or until cooked to your liking.
- Divide the salmon between plates and top with the dill pickled onions. Toss the baby spinach leaves with a little of the pickling liquid and serve with the fish.
