Prep 15 min
Total 35 min
Makes 4 Servings



30-g pkg
dried porcini mushrooms
4 115-g
skinless, boneless black cod fillets
1/4 tsp
kosher salt
4 1/2 tsp
garlic cloves, minced
2 454-g pkgs
baby spinach, about 32 cups
1 tsp
white truffle oil, optional


  • Grind mushrooms to a powder in a blender. Season cod with 1/8 tsp salt and pepper. Coat completely with 2 tbsp ground porcini.
  • Heat a very large non-stick frying pan over medium. Add 1 1/2 tsp of oil, then cod. Cook until bottoms are golden brown, 3 to 4 min. Flip and continue cooking until cod is cooked through, about 3 more min. Remove to a plate.
  • Wipe pan clean and return to stovetop. Add 2 tsp oil, then half of garlic. Cook for 1 min. Add half of spinach. Cook, stirring frequently, until spinach wilts, 4 to 5 min. Remove to a large bowl. Repeat with remaining oil, garlic and spinach. Stir remaining salt into cooked spinach.
  • Divide spinach between 4 plates. Top with black cod. Drizzle with truffle oil.

The secret’s out: Finely ground dried mushrooms add delicious intensity with almost no calories.
