Salmon Florentine and Lemon Broccoli

I was watching the Food Network last weekend and Ellie Krieger's show came on. She was making a few things that looked tasty, like Salmon Florentine and Lemon Broccoli:

The salmon was really good, if a little dry. We're trying to be healthy and eat more fish, so this was a great meal. The episode this meal came from was about super foods, salmon and spinach being two of them. The spinach mixture was really good, with a little creaminess from the ricotta cheese. I left out the sundried tomatoes because SP isn't a fan, but I'm sure they'd be fantastic in here.

I was going to use broccolini like the recipe calls for, but the small bundles I found in my supermarket were $3 each - way too steep for my budget. There were maybe 5 pieces per bundle. I would have needed 4 bundles just to make a meal. I subbed broccoli and it worked just fine. Some rice (white, not brown...I just can't get into brown rice) finished off the meal.

I think something is wrong with my camera because all the good shots came out blurry. I'll have to check the settings.
Pin It!


  1. Never been much for salmon or broccoli, but you've just made it look absolutely delicious! Thanks!

  2. I've been seriously loving Ellie. I'll have to check her new book I got to see if this recipe is in it.

  3. D1 loves fish and broccoli so I might have to refer to this recipe. SOME DAY.

  4. JJ - You're welcome! :)

    Dani - I need to make more of her recipes. Some of them sound really good when I watch her show and now that I know how well this turned out I'm anxious to try more.

    her-mrs - HI!!!! I'm so glad to see you. :)
