Indulge in a culinary masterpiece


  • 4 skinless salmon fillets
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp unsalted butter


  • 4 oz cream cheese, room temperature
  • 4 oz frozen spinach, thawed
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F / 175°C to ensure it’s ready for baking perfection.
  2. Gently create a pocket in each salmon fillet using a knife, ensuring it’s about 3/4 of the way through the thickness of the fillet. This pocket is where the magic happens!
  3. Drizzle and brush 1 tablespoon of olive oil over the salmon fillets, ensuring an even coating on both sides.
  4. Season the salmon fillets with salt and pepper, adjusting according to your taste preferences.
  5. Let’s make that dreamy Cream Cheese Spinach Filling: After squeezing any excess liquid from the thawed spinach, combine it with the softened cream cheese, parmesan cheese, minced garlic, salt, and pepper until it’s a harmonious blend of flavors.
  6. Now, stuff each salmon pocket with 2 tablespoons of the spinach mixture, spreading it evenly with the back of a spoon for optimal distribution.
  7. For an extra burst of flavor, drizzle the remaining tablespoon of olive oil over the fillets before they hit the oven.
  8. Bake for approximately 15-20 minutes, or until the salmon reaches that perfect flaky consistency that melts in your mouth. Keep an eye on it, as cooking times may vary depending on the thickness of your fillets.
  9. Optional: Before serving, elevate your dish with a garnish of fresh chopped herbs, an extra squeeze of lemon juice, or a sprinkle of lemon zest for a zesty finish.
