Before starting, preheat the oven to 450°F. Wash and dry all produce.

Drain and rinse lentils. Peel, then cut sweet potato into 1/2-inch cubes. Peel, then finely mince or grate garlic. Zest, then juice half the lemon (whole lemon for 4 ppl). Cut any remaining lemon into wedges. Pat salmon dry with paper towels, then season with salt and pepper.

Roast sweet potato

Toss sweet potatoes with 2 tsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl) on a baking sheet. Season with salt and pepper. Roast in the middle of the oven, flipping halfway through cooking, until tender, 16-18 min.

Make Crema

While sweet potatoes roast, mash together feta cheese, sour cream, half the garlic, 1 tsp lemon juice, 1/2 tsp lemon zest and 1 tsp water (dbl all for 4 ppl) with a fork in a small bowl, until almost smooth.

Cook Salmon

Heat a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add 1 tsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then salmon. Pan-fry until golden-brown, flipping halfway through, 4-6 min. **

Warm Lentils

While the salmon cooks, heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add 1 tsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then remaining garlic. Cook, stirring until fragrant, 30 sec. Add lentils and 1/4 tsp salt (dbl for 4 ppl). Cook, stirring until lentils are warmed through, 2-3 min. Remove pan from heat, then stir in 1 tsp lemon juice, 1 tsp lemon zest (dbl both for 4 ppl) and spinach. Stir until spinach is wilted. Season with pepper, if desired.

Finish and Serve

Use a fork to break up salmon into pieces. Divide lentils between bowls. Add sweet potatoes and salmon pieces on top, then drizzle over the crema. Squeeze over a lemon wedge if desired.
