Directions

1. To prepare the spinach salmon casserole: Position a rack in the center of the oven and preheat the oven to 400ºF (200°C).

2. Add olive oil, garlic, Italian seasoning, and red pepper flakes into a bowl along with 1 teaspoon of salt and ½ teaspoon black pepper. Arrange the salmon fillets in a baking dish and cover with the marinade, set aside for 10-15 minutes on the counter while prepping the other ingredients and the oven finishes preheating.

3. Quickly wilt the spinach in a skillet with 1 tablespoon olive oil and set aside.

4. Spread the softened cream cheese over the salmon fillets and lay spinach on top of the cream cheese. Finally, sprinkle mozzarella over the top.

5. Bake the spinach salmon casserole for 20-25 minutes, until salmon is cooked through. Sprinkle with red chili pepper flakes and chopped parlsey. Serve the spinach salmon casserole warm with a side of cauliflower rice, or roasted veggies. Enjoy! ❤️

Tips for the baked salmon casserole with spinach recipe

  • If you like your food spicier, combine the spices with the cream cheese before spreading on salmon. Nothing prevents you to add a tablespoon of hot sauce to the mix!
  • If you have more time available, let the salmon marinate for longer.
  • You can add mozzarella cheese toward the middle of baking time if you like it gooier.

What to serve with the spinach salmon casserole?

Cauliflower rice, zucchini noodles, or roasted asparagus will make a perfect choice if you’re on a low-carb diet. Rice, pasta, or bulgur will also make nice additions to this baked salmon casserole. If you want to stay on the lighter side, try this creamy salmon casserole with a crisp salad.

How and how long to keep the baked salmon casserole leftovers?

You can keep the baked salmon casserole leftovers in an airtight container for up to 3 days in the refrigerator. Gently reheat in the microwave or in the oven, covered.

Can we use frozen salmon for the casserole?

Yes, but you should thaw it overnight before using it for the recipe. Baking frozen salmon straight from the freezer will result in burnt cheese and spinach while the salmon is way undercooked.

    Pretty good! I didn't have any mozzarella so I used some Mexican mix I had. I definitely think it'd be better with moz. No fresh parsley either. I only baked mine for about 15 minutes and pulled 165F+ temps, but my fillets were a little thinner. I think next time I'll put a little more spinach on it too. Thanks for the receipe!
