Catalan Spinach Salad Recipe

Catalan Spinach Recipe - House & Home

A Spanish side dish from José Pizarro's Seasonal Spanish Food. "In Catalunya they like to cook the spinach so that it's completely collapsed and wilted, whereas I prefer it fresh and tossed only briefly in the hot oil. As there is quite a lot of spinach, you can cook it in two goes."

Yield: 
4 servings
Ingredients: 

3 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
1 small banana shallot, finely diced
1/4 cup pine nuts
1/4 cup raisins
12 cups fresh baby spinach leaves
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

Instructions: 

Step 1: Heat the olive oil in a large wok. Add the shallot, pine nuts and raisins and cook until golden.

Step 2: Add the spinach, and toss the leaves with the other ingredients (as you would a salad). The idea is to warm the spinach through — be careful not to overcook it.

Step 3: Season to taste and serve immediately.
