Her energy and positive attitude are contagious, and we were so happy to have the honor of chatting with her about her journey. She has also shared her favorite recipe with us, and we have to say, it is amazing! It comes together quickly and tastes delicious. The Tony Chachere’s Creole Seasoning seasons the salmon to perfection, making this an easy, healthy dinner to put together during a busy weeknight. We hope you enjoy!
Ready in 20 minutes – Serves 4 portions
To make this recipe you’ll need:
- 1.5 lbs. salmon fillet
- 2 tablespoons Tony Chachere’s Creole Seasoning
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- ½ cup feta cheese
- 2 cups spinach
- 1 cup water
- Salt to taste
- 1 bowl filled with ice water
- Aluminum foil
Heat your oven to 375 F (190 C).
Rub the salmon with the Tony Chachere’s Creole Seasoning and drizzle it with a little olive oil. Place the salmon in a piece of aluminum foil and wrap it to close. Put the wrapped salmon fillet on a baking sheet and bake it in the oven for 15-20 minutes, or until the salmon flakes when gently pressed with a fork.
5 minutes before the salmon is done cooking, bring 1 cup of water to boil in a large pan over medium heat. Meanwhile, prepare a medium sized bowl with ice water.
Sprinkle some salt in the boiling water and place the spinach into the boiling water. Cook for 1 minute, until the spinach turns bright green in color. Take the spinach out and place it in the bowl with the ice water (this stops the spinach from continuing to cook). Strain and set aside.
Take the salmon out of the oven, unwrap it, and top it with the spinach and crumbled Feta cheese.
You can serve it over rice, couscous or cooked quinoa.
