Number of Servings: 4


    1 lb. salmon filet, preferably wild or organic, pinbones and skin removed
    8 oz. baby spinach
    1-2 T minced garlic
    1-2 T pinenuts, optional
    Sea salt and white pepper to taste
    1 T extra virgin olive oil
    1/2 c. plain yogurt, nonfat, Greek is best
    1/2 cucumber, peeled and deseeded
    1 T. freshly chopped dill


1. Butterfly salmon: cut slit in center and slice through the length of the fish, not going all the way through (so it opens up).
2. Over medium heat, saute spinach, garlic, and pine nuts in olive oil just until wilted. Season with salt and white pepper.
3. Lay the spinach down center of salmon's bottom layer and cover with the top layer of salmon.
4. Bake on a lined baking sheet for 18-25 minutes until firm to the touch, at 350-375 degrees.
5. For the sauce, blend all ingredients in a food processor until combined. Add seasoning if desired. Serve over salmon.
This serves 4, 4 oz. portions.

    What a hit! And so simple too!
    I added fresh lemon juice (one lemon) to the spinach, and served lemon wedges with the fish.

    Will surely make again!

  • Great recipe - my other half compared it to a fine meal from a restaurant. I took a little bit of everything from others -- added lemon to the dill sauce and salt. Easy recipe if you have all the ingredients on hand. Not sure what I will do with all the fresh dill :) - 3/13/16

  • The salmon part was great (but then salmon has great flavor all by itself!), but the sauce, which is kind of key, was really bland and didn't really work with the rest of the dish for me. It's a good healthy dish though; thanks for sharing the recipe!
