Spinach Salmon

This week I’d like to share an old favorite recipe on mine.  I was thrilled when I looked through my recipe box and realized it would work nicely as an “S” meal on the Trim Healthy Mama plan.  It’s become our #2 favorite meal next to the Cheeseburger Quesadillas from Gwens-nest.com

This is a simple recipe that makes a delicious meal to share with others when you are bringing a meal for a new baby, surgery or gathering!

Spinach Salmon

Ingredients

1 Large Salmon Plank (I purchase from Aldi for 6.99)

fresh spinach

roma tomatoes

sweet onion

olive oil

balsamic vinegar

fresh squeezed lemon juice

butter

salt & pepper

Pre-heat oven on 350 degrees.  Place large piece of foil on cookie sheet.  Lay salmon plank on foil.  Season with salt & pepper.  Add thin pats of butter across the plank.  Top with thin sliced roma tomatoes, fresh spinach and sweet onion slices.  Drizzle with olive oil, balsamic vinegar and fresh squeezed lemon juice.  Season again with salt and pepper.  Cover in foil and tightly wrap the edges to keep in steam.  Bake at 350 for 25 minutes.

Cooked Spinach Salmon served with a side salad.

Note: This recipe may also be made with individual salmon fillets for a smaller family.  I did a little taste test and made 2 fillets of Alaskan Wild Caught Salmon from Fresh Market (19.99 for 6) and they taste was unbelievable.  If you can afford it, I would highly recommend, but my family still enjoyed the inexpensive salmon from aldi!

    Is the fish frozen going into the oven?

      I have put it in the oven frozen before but it just takes a little longer to cook. Usually it’s about an hour if its frozen and 35-40 minutes if fresh.
