Spinach Artichoke Salmon

(gluten free & dairy free)

Prep time: 5-10 minutes Cook time: 13-20 minutes Yield: 7

Ingredients:

  • 1.5 lbs. wild caught salmon

  • 3 artichoke hearts, minced

  • ¼ (heaping) cup + 1 tbsp. avocado oil mayo

  • ¼ cup (packed, like really packed in there!) minced spinach

  • 2 tbsp. minced fresh dill

  • 1 tsp. garlic granules

  • 1 tsp. roasted minced/chopped garlic

  • ~12 cracks of freshly ground black pepper

  • Sea salt, to taste


How to Create this Recipe:

  1. Preheat the oven to 450 ° F and line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. If your salmon is in one large piece cut it into about 7 portions. It will cook better if it is in smaller portions. Place the salmon portions, skin side down (if there is skin) and lightly sprinkle with sea salt.

  3. In a medium bowl combine all the remaining ingredients and mix until well combined.

  4. Next, you’ll take the spinach artichoke mixture and slather in on top on the salmon portions. Divide the mix as evenly as you can among the salmon portions.

  5. Bake in the oven for 13-20 minutes, or until the center of the salmon portion flakes easily. Remove from the oven and serve with the Homemade Caesar Salad (recipe below) .


* NOTES:

  • The amount of time you will need to cook the salmon will depend on your oven and the thickness of the salmon. Start by cooking it for 13 minutes, check it and if it isn’t done, cook in 3 minute increments until it is done. This will help you avoid over cooking the salmon.

How to Create this Recipe:
