You've seen these in the stores, stuffed with all kinds of goodness. I'm a big fan, but wanted to reduce the calories and create my own. If you love cheese and salmon, you will love the combination of flavors in this recipe. I like to serve it with a light salad dressed with my own lemon-mustard vinaigrette. Fabulous combination of flavors.

Ingredients

2
thick salmon filets, skin removed
1/2 c
reduced fat feta cheese crumbles
1 c
lowfat ricotta cheese
1 c
fresh spinach, chopped
1
egg, beaten
1 tsp
garlic powder
1/2 tsp
pepper
1 small
lemon

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a small baking dish (9x9 or equivalent).
2
Rinse and pat dry the salmon filets. Cut a slit a little more than 3/4 of the way down the length of the filet....like you are making a letter "V".
Place the filet in the baking dish, forming a circle (as best you can). You will place the stuffing in the center.
3
In a medium bowl, combine the feta, ricotta, spinach, egg and seasonings. Mix well.
4
Spoon half the mixture into each filet. Squeeze half the lemon juice over each filet.
5
Bake for 15-20 minutes. Serve.
