Stuffed Salmon

Tender, juicy fillets of salmon, a dream-boat filling of cream cheese, spinach, mozzarella, and Parmesan, and exactly 10 minutes of prep, this five-star Stuffed Salmon is the kind of epically impressive, yet paradoxically easy, recipe that will have you swearing off ever going out to eat again.

After all you’ll tell yourself, why should you dress up, pay good money, wait for a seat, and suffer outrageous markup on wine in a restaurant, when you can make a chef-level dish like this elegant spinach stuffed salmon at home?

I’m so looking forward to making this easy stuffed salmon for Ben and myself this Friday. We’re having Valentine’s Day at home, in part because we never have a great experience when we eat out on this busy holiday, even at restaurants we normally enjoy, and because thanks to a grueling five days of finishing up my last (hopefully final) round of cookbook edits, it has been ages since I’ve actually eaten a home cooked meal.

Spinach stuffed salmon at home, a crisp glass of wine to go with it (see below for recommendations for wine to pair with salmon), and someone else to wash the dishes is my ultimate idea of romance.

Speaking of cookbook, I have BIG NEWS on that front coming VERY SOON. Watch closely, because it’s a doozy, and I know you don’t want to miss it!
