Feta-Spinach Salmon Roast

Comment on this recipe

Never have to pay big prices at the seafood counter any more. Love this one! For salmon haters, you'll love this one.

Ingredients

3 ounces cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
2 scallions, thinly sliced, including the crisp part of the green
1/2 cup fresh spinach, chopped fine
2 skinless salmon fillets, roughly the same size, weight and shape

Instructions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine cream cheese and feta, mashing and stirring with fork until well blended. Add chopped scallions, spinach and combine well. Spread this mixture evenly over one salmon fillet. The filling will make it stand about 3/4 inch above the fillet. Top with second salmon fillet. Brush both sides with olive oil, turning the whole thing over carefully with your hand and the use of a broad spatula. Place the "loaf" on a shallow baking pan and bake for 20 minutes. Slice carefully with a sharp serrated knife.
