A delicious recipe: stuffed salmon. The salmon is stuffed with a spicy spinach celery mixture and then slowly cooked in the oven.
For Easter it is nice to put something special on the table as a main course. And stuffed salmon is great at Easter. A nice spring dish, not too heavy. The salmon is filled with a spicy spinach celery mixture. And then slowly cooked in the oven.
Prepare in advance: prepare the salmon roll in the morning and place them in the ovenproof dish in the fridge, so that you only have to put them in the oven in the evening.
- Don't cut the salmon fillet through and through. This way your stuffing keeps better in place.
- If you use freezer spinach let it leek in a colander before use. Push out the excess liquid. Otherwise your stuffing becomes too wet.
- By covering the salmon with baking paper while baking in the oven it stays moist.
- Substitute Greek yoghurt with sour cream for even more creaminess.
- Substitute celery with slices of leek.
- Eat this recipe with roast potatoes and a green salad
- use freezer spinach instead of fresh. Drain it well before use.
- Substitute butter with margarine.
- Use freezer salmon filets. The filets will probably be smaller, so make 4 seperate ones instead of one big salmon.
The price of this budget friendly recipe is €1.80 per person
- Eat the stuffed salmon right away. You can't freeze it because of the filling.
- If you've got some leftover salmon store it covered with plastic foil in the refrigerator. The next day bake a delicious omelet with the salmon as your filling.
