Salmon Florentine

This salmon was delicious! I found the recipe at Apple A Day, and knew it looked right up my ally. I changed the recipe a little bit to make the salmon a bit more smothered, and it was awesome. The meal is super quick and easy- a perfect weeknight meal for family! AND- GO PACK GO!!! Today we find out if we are going to be Superbowl bound!!!
Ingredients
4 6 oz salmon fillets
1 shallot, minced
1 cup frozen chopped spinach, thawed
1 cup part skim ricotta cheese
1/4 cup light sour cream
5 sundried tomatoes, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 tsp parmesan cheese, grated
1 tsp olive oil
salt and pepper

Instructions
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.

Saute shallots, tomatoes, garlic, and spinach in a skillet over medium heat. When shallots are soft move them to a large mixing bowl, and allow them to cool for about 15 minutes. While spinach mixture is cooling, grease or spray a medium baking dish with PAM. Place salmon in baking dish, sprinkle with a little salt and pepper, and set aside. Mix sour cream, ricotta, and parmesan cheese into spinach mixture. Top salmon with florentine. Bake salmon for 15-18 minutes, or until salmon is cooked through.

  1. If you like this i think you'll really enjoy spinach and feta stuffed salmon. Instead of using ricotta cheese and sour cream, use cream cheese and feta cheese (garlic & herb is my favorite!). Butterfly the salmon and put the stuffing mix inside. Bake the same way. Delicious! I'm definitely going to try your recipe!
