Salmon Florentine

Another great way to enjoy fish! Found on Apple A Day and we loved this. This is definitely going into our rotation of fish recipes. This would be perfect for a dinner party too…impressive but doesnt leave you in the kitchen the whole night…easy and good!


10 oz. package frozen spinach, thawed
1 TBSP olive oil
1/4 c. minced shallots
2 tsp. minced garlic
5 sun-dried tomatoes, chopped
1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1/2 c. part-skim ricotta cheese
4 (6-oz.) salmon fillets, rinsed and patted dry

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Farenheit. 
Using your hands, squeeze spinach of all excess liquid. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add shallots and garlic and cook for three minutes until they begin to soften. Add garlic and cook for one minute more. Add spinach, sun-dried tomatoes, red pepper flakes, salt and black pepper and cook an additional two minutes. Remove from heat and let cool approximately ten minutes. Add ricotta and stir to combine. Season with additional salt and pepper, to taste.
Using your hands, pack approximately 1/2 cup spinach mixture on top of each salmon fillet, forming mixture to the shape of the fillet. Place fillets on a rimmed baking sheet or glass baking dish and bake for 15-18 minutes, or until salmon is cooked through.

    I participate in a blog group called Craving Ellie in My Belly, and we cycle through Ellie Krieger’s recipes. This is one we recently made, and it was a favorite of mine! Beautiful picture.
