  • Spinach Stuffing

  • 4 to 5 ounces baby spinach leaves, chopped
  • 1 cup grated Gruyere
  • 5 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 2 tablespoons sundried tomatoes (not in oil), chopped
  • 1 tablespoon chopped chives
  • Juice of one lemon
  • Alaska Salmon

  • 4 wild Alaska salmon fillets, about 6 ounces each
  • Olive or grapeseed oil, as needed
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Step 1 Prepare the spinach

    In a bowl, mix the cream cheese, chopped spinach, sundried tomatoes, Gruyere, chives and juice of the lemon.

  2. Step 2 Stuff the salmon fillets

    Cut each Alaska salmon fillet horizontally in center to make a cavity to place the stuffing. (Do not cut all the way through fish.) Spoon some spinach stuffing into each salmon cavity.

  3. Step 3 Prepare and cook the salmon

    Preheat oven to 375F. Line a small baking sheet with parchment paper; transfer salmon to baking sheet. Drizzle the salmon fillets with oil then season with salt and pepper. Bake until salmon is thoroughly cooked, about 20 minutes.
