Salmon Florentine – WLS Recipes


Salmon Florentine. Low carb and weight loss surgery recipe

This is one of those pictures I feel just doesn’t do the meal justice. (Partly because the sun goes down before dinner is ready and I have no natural lighting to work with!) The flavors…and aroma…of this salmon dish were outstanding. I had leftovers the next day and still loved it! Which doesn’t always happen with fish.

  • 10 oz frozen spinach, thawed and drained
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp sun-dried tomato pesto
  • 1/2 cup low fat Ricotta cheese
  • 4 salmon fillets


  • Heat oven to 350 F. Make sure all the liquid has been squeezed out of the spinach.
  • Heat a non-skillet skillet to medium high heat. Spray with olive oil or cooking spray. Add onions and cook until translucent. Add garlic and cook another minute. Add spinach, pesto, salt & pepper. Cook about 2 minutes, stirring to combine and remove from heat. Add ricotta and stir to combine once more.
  • Place salmon fillets in a baking dish (I used my Pampered Chef stoneware). Scoop spinach mixture evenly among the 4 salmon fillets. Bake for 15 minutes and serve.
