Salmon stuffed with goat cheese and arugulaPosted: August 22, 2011
I love goat cheese. I love salmon. And I have recent found a love for arugula. So as I was searching around for a new salmon recipe, I came upon this recipe and adapted it to salmon and what I had on hand. It was not only super easy to make, but oh so good!
2 thick salmon filets
2-4 ounces goat cheese (depending on how cheesy you like it)
1 cup arugula
fresh ground pepper and salt
evoo for baking dish
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. While oven is heating, slit the salmon on the side until you have cut it almost in half and it opens like a book. Lay it flat. Top the flat salmon with a thick layer of goat cheese and then arugula. Tightly roll up the salmon filet and close with toothpicks. Set in a shallow baking dish with a bit of evoo on the bottom. Finish with 2nd salmon. Top both with a bit of evoo and salt and pepper.
Bake for 10-15 mins or until done, depending on the thickness of your salmon. Serve immediately!
