If you are a fan of creamy spinach artichoke dip AND moist tasty salmon, you are definitely going to love this dish! This stuffed salmon recipe is nothing short of amazing and super easy. A great healthier meal that’s easy enough to make on a weeknight, but also fancy enough for an elegant dinner.

Long before I discovered recipes like Pan Seared Salmon with Lemon Garlic Cream Sauce, my Momma used to make A LOT of fish dinners, but I never really liked them. The only time I’d join in on a fish-dinner was when she served stuffed fish. Her choice was a WHOLE large piece of trout. Like, including the head and the tail.  It was the only thing that turned me off.

However, she would stuff that trout with all sorts of things, but most memorable for me was the creamy spinach – which was the only time that I’d agree to eating it.

Fast forward to now where my choice of fish is bright pink salmon, sans head and tail, stuffed with spinach and artichoke dip.

HOW TO MAKE STUFFED SALMON WITH SPINACH AND ARTICHOKE DIP

  • First and foremost, grab a paring knife. Then, slice a slit on the side of each salmon fillet to create a pocket. DO NOT cut all the way through – cut just enough to make a pocket.

  • Next, make the spinach and artichoke dip. You’ll want to grab some cream cheese, baby spinach, canned artichoke hearts, and garlic. Combine all of that in a skillet and cook just until tender and creamy.

  • Place the salmon fillets in an airtight container and refrigerate until ready to cook.

HOW TO FREEZE COOKED SALMON FILLETS

  • To freeze cooked salmon fillets, make sure everything has cooled completely.
  • Wrap each piece in parchment paper, and then place in freezer bags. Squeeze out the excess air and seal the bag.
  • Frozen cooked salmon is good for up to 3 months.

HOW TO THAW COOKED SALMON FILLETS

  • To thaw, remove the fish from the freezer and defrost in the fridge overnight, or for several hours.
  • Pat dry with a paper towel before reheating to remove excess moisture. It is advised to reheat salmon in an oven, to preserve flavor and texture.
