Lent is coming early this year, so it is time to start thinking about fish dishes. Growing up my mom always served tuna fish sandwiches on Fridays in Lent, which was not a very interesting meal. We eat try to eat seafood regularly year round, since it is healthy, and salmon is always popular. This recipe was inspired by a recipe from Cooking Light. It is one of my family’s favorites, and it is quick and easy to make. I especially like it because it is one of the few recipes with spinach that my kids will eat! It is also a good recipe for using frozen wild salmon fillets, which is a cost effective way to buy wild salmon.

This recipe sounds amazing. I found your blog through the blogmania link!
That looks scrumptous:-)
This looks good!
The name of this dish has me falling in love! But it looks easy enough that I could actually pull it together too!
Coconut Salmon- I’m in! I am always looking for a great Spinach recipe that my children will enjoy. I would probably cook the spinach a little less only for my own preference -I really don’t care for slimy spinach. I would either pull it altogether or try it barely wilted.
I don’t like seafood so I’d leave that out, but oh yes to the rest!!!
I love salmon! I’m always looking for new ways to prepare so I’ll definitely have to test out this recipe one night.
This sounds so interesting and delicious!
