Creamy Spinach Parmesan Baked Salmon

I love salmon and I could happily eat it for dinner 5 nights a week. Unfortunately I live with a bunch of small people who would probably go on a hunger strike. They much prefer pasta or pizza or anything cheese filled. I have to work to find recipes that combine my love of salmon with their love of cheese. This recipe was originally intended to be Spinach stuffed salmon but I was short on time so it became cheesy spinach topped instead. And it was delicious!

Ingredients:
8 Salmon Fillets
4 Tbsp lemon juice
2 Tbsp olive oil, divided
8 oz cream cheese at room temp
8 oz frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
1/2 cup shredded Parmesan
1 Tbsp minced garlic
salt and pepper to taste

Garlic butter:
2 Tbsp butter
2 Tbsp minced garlic
2 Tbsp lemon juice

Directions:
1. Place salmon on surface and season each side with salt, pepper, olive oil, and lemon juice.
2. In small bowl, combine spinach, cream cheese, and garlic.
3. Lay salmon fillets on sprayed baking sheet.
4. Top each evenly with spinach mixture.
5. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
6. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes.
7. Add ingredients for garlic butter to microwavable dish and heat until butter melts.
8. Pour over salmon and broil for 3-5 minutes.

I don’t think I’ll bother trying this recipe stuffed when I make it again, having the broiled cheese on top was amazing! My kids ate every bite and were disappointed that there were no leftovers. 



Oven Baked Parmesan Crusted Tilapia

One of the kids’ favorite dinners is Grilled Tilapia but we don’t always have time to grill on weeknights. I’ve been trying out various new Tilapia recipes this summer and we’ve found quite a few that are just as delicious as the Grilled Tilapia. I think this recipe is probably one of the top favorites- it’s full of flavor and just melts in your mouth. 

Ingredients:
2 pounds Tilapia
2 Cups shredded Parmesan cheese
1 Tbsp Paprika
1 Tbsp Dried Parsley
2 Tbsp Olive Oil
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper

Directions:
1. Pat dry thawed Tilapia fillets.
2. Mix Parmesan, Paprika, Parsley, Salt and Pepper in small bowl.
3. Brush Tilapia with oil on both sides and dredge in Parmesan mixture, patting to coat.
4. Lay on foil lined sprayed baking sheet.
5. Top with remaining Parmesan mixture.
6. Bake at 400 for 12-15 minutes.
