thickened. Remove from the heat and whisk in the dijon and English
mustards, horseradish and lemon juice; cover and set aside.

2. Prepare the salmon: if there are any bones remaining, remove them with a

coating mixture.

6. Lay a bed of buttered spinach on each of four warmed plates and top with
salmon. Surround the salmon and spinach with the sauce and serve
