Walnut Stuffed Salmon

Ingredients:

  • 2 tsp (10 mL) olive o
  • 1/4 cup (60 mL) minced onion
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 4 cups (1 L) chopped spinach
  • 1/2 tsp (2 mL) each salt and pepper
  • 1 cup (250 mL) cooked brown rice
  • 2 tsp (10 mL) lemon zest
  • 1/4 cup (60 mL) shredded old cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) chopped walnuts
  • 1 lb (500 g) salmon fillet, skinned and pin bones removed
  • Directions:

    • In large non-stick skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add onions; cook until tender but not browned, about five minutes. Stir in garlic, spinach, salt and pepper and cook just until spinach starts to wilt, about three minutes. Remove from heat.
    • Add cooked rice to spinach and stir in lemon zest until well combined.
    • Spread spinach mixture evenly over salmon and sprinkle with cheese and walnuts. Roll up gently using toothpicks or butcher’s twine to secure.
    • Place walnut stuffed salmon on a parchment-lined rimmed baking sheet and bake in a 375ºF (190ºC) oven until fish is cooked through, about 15-20 minutes.
    • Transfer to cutting board and let rest 10 minutes before slicing. Serve with steamed seasonal vegetables or a green salad.
