  1. Heat the oven to 400 degrees F. Make a slit two-thirds of the way through the center of each salmon fillet making sure not to cut all the way through. Season each fillet with the salt and pepper. In a bowl, combine the spinach, pesto, tomatoes, and pine nuts. Spoon 1/3 cup of the mixture into each slit.
  2. Arrange the fillets on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray. Roast for 8 to 10 minutes or until the spinach mixture is heated through.

I really only used this recipe as a base, but what I ended up with was delicious. I used homemade pesto, made with just fresh basil, garlic, olive oil, and sea salt; I omitted the pine nuts; and...

Delicious recipe - I didn't have sun dried tomatoes, so I used fresh and it came out wonderful. I liked that it only took a few minutes to prepare, too.

I made this the other day and it turned out great. I added a little feta cheese, and extra sundried tomatoes packed in oil. I used about a 2 1/2 lb filet, cooked the spinach, then mixed everyt...
