SALMON WITH BABY SPINACH & FETA CHEESE

Main

salmon fillet

sea salt

black pepper

dry herbs

olive oil

Preheat oven to 90 degree Celsius or 200 degree Fahrenheit. I didn’t type wrongly. Low heat is the magic to bake salmon into moist and firm. In a baking dish, season salmon on both sides with sea salt, black pepper, dry herbs and olive oil. Bake for 45 minutes.

Sauce

1 tablespoon of melted butter

1 teaspoon of fresh lemon juice

lemon zest

half cup of fresh cream

juice from bake salmon

Put a pan over low heat. Combine all ingredients and stir continuously. Turn off heat once it starts to boil.

Side

big handful of baby spinach

2 cloves of garlic

olive oil

pinch of sea salt

black pepper

feta cheese

Pour olive oil in a pan over medium heat. Once oil is heat up, put in garlic and fry for 1 minute follow by sea salt and black pepper. Turn off heat and put in spinach immediately. Stir till they reduce in volume. This is a great technique I’ve learn to cook spinach and maintain its crunchiness. Stir in crushed feta cheese. The heat will melt the cheese a little.

Serve the sauce over salmon with spinach by the side.

  1. Triple wow!! Another wonderful recipe. I bookmarked this. It has been awhile since I have prepared salmon. Most definitely on my list!!

    1. Thanks Judy,

      If you are making baby spinach as well, you may want to use ricotta instead of feta. Ricotta should be more suitable but it is difficult to get in Singapore that’s why i replaced it. I hope you will like it and do let me know how it goes.

      cheers,
      Danny
