The Creamiest Stuffed Spinach

The best creamiest and stuffed salmon. 

  1. Salmon:

    4 skinless salmon fillets

    salt and pepper to season

    2 tablespoons lemon juice

    2 tablespoons olive oil divided

    1 tablespoon unsalted butter


    4 oz (120 g) cream cheese at room temp

    1 bag of fresh spinach

    1/4 cup finely grated parmesan cheese

    2 teaspoons minced garlic

    Salt and pepper, to taste

    Optional Garlic Butter:

    1 tablespoon unsalted butter

    1 tablespoon minced garlic

    1 tablespoon lemon juice

  2. Place each salmon fillet on a flat surface. Season both sides with salt, pepper, 1 tablespoon olive oil and lemon juice. Cut a slit or pocket about 3/4 quarter of the way through, being careful not to cut all the way.

    Squeeze excess liquid out of the spinach discard liquid. In a medium-sized bowl, mix together the spinach, cream cheese, parmesan cheese and garlic. Season with salt and pepper.

    Fill salmon ‘pockets’ with 1-2 tablespoons of the spinach dip, spreading evenly with the back of the spoon.

  3. Heat butter and remaining oil in a skillet (or non stick pan) over medium-high heat. Add the salmon and fry until golden (about 6 to 7 minutes). Carefully flip and allow to cook on the other side until golden and cooked through (another 6-7 minutes, depending on the size of your fillets).

    Optional: cover with a lid and continue cooking for a further 2-3 minutes, if necessary, until cooked through.

    Transfer to a warm plate to make garlic butter.

    Garlic Butter: Melt the butter in the remaining oil/juices in the pan leftover from the salmon. Add the garlic and lemon juice; saute until garlic is fragrant (about 30 seconds). Remove and serve with the salmon

Make sure to pan sear the spinach for about 2-3 minutes until it’s wilted down. Just add some virgin olive oil to the pan and add the spinach a handful at a time.
