INGREDIENTS
For the Salmon
4 salmon fillets (4-6 oz. each)
1 tbsp. olive oil
1 tsp. Cajun seasoning or to taste
For The Spinach Stuffing
3 oz. cream cheese
1/2 cup mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup feta cheese crumbles
3 oz. fresh baby spinach

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Make the spinach stuffing. Place the cream cheese, feta, and mozzarella into a medium mixing bowl. Roughly chop the baby spinach and add it to the cheese. Massage the spinach and cheese with your hands, until well combined (it should look like thick paste).
  • Prep the salmon. Using a sharp knife, cut a pocket in the center of each salmon fillet.
  • Season the salmon. Generously season the salmon fillets with the Cajun seasoning and brush them with olive oil on both sides.
  • Stuff the salmon. Divide the spinach stuffing into four equal parts and spoon it into the salmon pockets.
  • Bake the salmon. Bake the stuffed fillets in a preheated oven at 400ºF for 15-20 minutes, depending on how large your fillets are.

INGREDIENTS
1/4 cup finely chopped pecans
1/4 cup panko breadcrumbs
1/8 tsp salt
1/4 tsp parsley
2 TBSP unsalted butter
2 salmon fillets (approx. 4-6 ounces each) fresh or thawed if frozen
1/4 cup cranberry sauce
serve atop 2-4 cups fresh baby spinach or with your favorite veggie side!

INSTRUCTIONS

Preheat oven to 400°F.

  • Combine pecans, panko, salt, and parsley in a small bowl.
  • Melt butter and pour over pecan mixture, tossing to coat.
  • Pat salmon dry and spread with cranberry sauce, about 2 TBSP per filet, then top with pecan topping.
  • Bake 10-15 minutes, until salmon is tender and flakes easily with a fork. The general rule of thumb is 10 minutes of cook time per inch of thickness, which should help you adjust times based on the cut used.
  • After removing the skin, plate the steamy salmon atop the fresh baby spinach as a salad, or gently wilt spinach in a skillet with a little butter and a pinch of salt. I typically go the salad route for salmon lunches and the wilted, cooked route with the spinach when serving salmon up for dinner. Choose your favorite method! Enjoy!

Author: Christina

INGREDIENTS
3 salmon fillets
2 teaspoons olive oil
2 tablespoons butter
5 cloves garlic, finely diced
1 small yellow onion, diced
1/3 cup (80ml) vegetable broth
5 ounces (150g) jarred sun-dried tomato in oil, drained of oil
1 3/4 cups heavy cream
Salt and pepper, to taste
3 cups baby spinach leaves
1/2 cup grated Parmesan
1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped

INSTRUCTIONS

  • To make the creamy garlic Tuscan salmon recipe: Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Season the salmon filets on both sides with salt and pepper, and sear in the hot pan, flesh-side down first, for 5 minutes on each side, or until cooked to your liking. Once salmon filets are cooked, remove from the pan and set aside.
  • In the same pan, melt the butter in the remaining cooking juices leftover. Add in the garlic and fry until fragrant (about one minute). Add onion and stir fry until translucent. Add the sun-dried tomatoes and fry for 1-2 minutes so they release their flavors. Finally, pour in the vegetable broth, and allow the sauce to reduce down slightly.
  • Reduce heat to low, add the heavy cream, and bring to a gentle simmer while stirring occasionally. Season the cream sauce with salt and pepper to your taste.
  • Add in the baby spinach and allow to wilt in the sauce, and add in the parmesan cheese. Allow cream sauce to simmer for a further minute until cheese melts through.
  • Add the grilled salmon filets back into the pan; sprinkle with the parsley, and spoon the sauce over each filet.
