    Prep:12 min
    Cook:20 min
    Serves 4

    Ingredients

    2 (10 ounce) packages frozen spinach, thawed
    1 tablespoon olive oil
    1/4 cup minced shallots
    2 teaspoons minced garlic
    5 sun-dried tomatoes, chopped
    1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon black pepper
    1/2 cup part-skim ricotta cheese
    4 (6-ounce) salmon fillets, rinsed and patted dry

    Method.

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Using your hands, squeeze spinach of all excess liquid.

    Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add shallots and garlic and cook for 3 minutes until they begin to soften. Add garlic and cook for 1 minute more. Add spinach, sun-dried tomatoes, red pepper flakes, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper and cook an additional 2 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool approximately 10 minutes. Add ricotta and stir to combine. Season with additional salt and pepper, to taste.

    Using your hands, pack approximately 1/2 cup spinach mixture on top of each salmon fillet, forming mixture to the shape of the fillet. Place fillets on a rimmed baking sheet or glass baking dish and bake for 15 minutes, until salmon is cooked through.
