Feta-Spinach Salmon Roast
I saw something like this being sold for outrageous amounts of money in the fish case at the local grocery store, and I thought, "I can[ do that!"]
- 3 ounces cream cheese, softened
- 3/4 cup crumbled feta
- 2 scallions, thinly sliced, including the crisp part of the green
- 1/2 cup fresh spinach, chopped
- 3/4 pound salmon fillets, cut into 2 pieces
- Olive oil
Preheat the oven to 350 F degrees.
In a bowl, combine the cream cheese and feta, mashing and stirring with a fork until well blended. Add the scallions and spinach and combine well. Spread the mixture evenly over 1 salmon fillet. (The filling will be about 3/4-inch thick.) Top with the second salmon fillet. Brush both sides with olive oil, turning over carefully with a spatula, and place on a shallow baking pan. Bake for 20 minutes; test for doneness with a toothpick. To serve, slice carefully with a sharp, serrated knife.
