Let's Cook! Salmon with spinach, mushrooms and tomatoes from Kraft

So I'm getting married this year...and that means BUDGET CRUNCH! With that, a little less eating out and a lot more cooking in!

TIP: My latest habit is to send recipes to myself with the name of the recipe in the subject line. Then I file them away in an email folder and when I'm getting ready to grocery shop or cook something I just hit the file!

Last week I came across one I had been very eager to make: Baked Salmon with spinach, tomatoes and mushrooms. It was on the Kraft site - so there aren't too many ingredients and it's easy. I'm always looking for new ways to cook fish - it's so good for you but I need some "stuff" to go with it.

Here's everything - like I said - SIMPLE! 5 ingredients...and actually I used Ruby Red Trout because it was on sale and looked better.

Chop some spinach...it was a bit time consuming - taking the leaves off the stems and all.

Throw that in a bowl with sliced mushrooms, chopped up tomato and the dressing. Stir.

Pour over the salmon/trout and bake!

Voila! It was delicious! The trout was moist and flavorful and it was a great way to get my fiance to eat spinach, mushrooms and tomatoes (he really doesn't like any of them!).

Baked Salmon with Tomatoes, Spinach & Mushrooms

What You Need!

4 salmon fillets (1 lb.)
2 cups chopped fresh spinach leaves
1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
1 tomato, chopped
1/3 cup KRAFT Sun-Dried Tomato Dressing

Make It!

HEAT oven to 375°F.

PLACE fish fillets, skin-sides down, in 13x9-inch baking dish sprayed with cooking spray.

COMBINE remaining ingredients; spoon over fish.

BAKE 20 to 25 min. or until fish flakes easily with fork.


Why Should You Make It? It's a great way to change up salmon from just plain old broiling or baking it. Also - don't be afraid to substitute veggies or fish based on what is in season, available or on sale!
