TUSCAN STUFFED SALMON

Ingredients

Tuscan Stuffed Salmon

Ingredients for 2 servings

  • Stuffing
    • 1 bundle raw spinach (about 3 cups)
    • 1/2 cup fresh basil, chopped
    • 4 tablespoons sundried tomatoes, chopped
    • 3 oz goat cheese, soft (OR feta at room temperature)
    • 1 tablespoon The Fit Cook Land seasoning (OR dried oregano)
  • 12oz raw center-cut salmon, divided into 2 equally sized fillets
  • Generous pinch of sea salt & pepper
  • 1/2 tablespoon olive oil (or avocado oil)
Steps

STEPS

  1. Set oven to 420F/216C.
  2. Set a nonstick skillet on medium high heat.  Once hot, lightly spray with olive oil and then toss in washed spinach.  Cook for 1 – 2 minutes until the spinach has wilted but NOT shriveled up.  The color should be a vibrant green color.  Remove the skillet and place on a cutting board to cool down comfortable enough to touch.  Chop it into pieces.
  3. In a mixing bowl add all of the Stuffing ingredients and mix everything together using a fork.  Set aside.
  4. Add olive oil and sea salt & pepper to the salmon fillets.  Rub all over.  Make a deep incision in the salmon from top to bottom using a sharp knife to create a pocket.  Careful not to puncture the skin or completely slice the salmon in half.
  5. Stuff the mixture into the salmon.
  6. Place the stuffed fillets on a baking tray lined with parchment paper.  Bake in the oven for 12 – 15 minutes, or until the salmon is cooked through.
