Moroccan spinach salad

On the surface this is a very simple dish but after making twice seems more difficult to get right, probably because of adding too much lemon. Also it is probably easier if made in fairly large quantity given the spinach cooks down. Finally I probably didn’t add enough salt.

Basic idea is to chop up spinach finely, add crushed garlic and cook in olive oil. Then add spices – paprika, cumin and cayenne pepper (perhaps red chilli if you have fresh?) and salt. Then also add lemon juice. After cooking turn out on a plate and add olives and preserved lemon.

Here is the youtube video that explained it!
