salmon skewers with smashed potatoes... 45 minutes

the goods:

1 and 1/2 pounds waxy potatoes
1 and 1/2 pounds skinless salmon fillet, cut into 1-inch pieces
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
3 tablespoons honey
5 ounces baby spinach
2 tablespoons unsalted butter

Heat broiler, with rack in top position. In a medium saucepan, bring potatoes to a boil in salted water and cook until tender when pierced with a knife, about 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, thread salmon onto wooden skewers. Place skewers in a single layer on a foil-lined rimmed baking sheet. Brush salmon with oil and season with salt and pepper. Broil salmon until opaque throughout, about 6 minutes, flipping once. Remove from oven and drizzle with honey.

Meanwhile, drain potatoes. While still hot, gently smash each potato with the back of a spoon to flatten slightly and place along with spinach and butter, in a large bowl.

Season with salt and pepper, then toss to combine. Serve salmon skewers with potatoes and spinach.
