*Exact measurements are listed in the recipe card below.
How to Make Spinach Artichoke Stuffed Salmon
In a mixing bowl, add in the cream cheese, spinach, artichoke hearts, parmesan cheese, salt and garlic.
Mix together and set aside. The mixture will be very thick, that's what you want because as it heats, the cheese will melt causing the mixture to become looser.
Take each piece of salmon and cut a slit down the side of the thick end of the filet, but do not cut all the way through. You can place your finger on the other side of the salmon to get a feel for how deep you're cutting so that you don't cut though the other side. You're looking for a nice size pocket for the stuffing.
Take the stuffing mixture and divide it into 6 equal parts.
Scoop out each part of the mixture and gently stuff it into the salmon, then press down slightly so that the mixture is evenly distributed inside the salmon.
Turn a large non stick skillet to medium high heat, add in your olive oil and butter. Take each piece of salmon (might have to do them in batches, depending on the side of your skillet, and salt the tops, then place them skin side up.
Allow them to sear and do not move them until after about 5-6 minutes, when they are ready to flip. You want to flesh side to have a nice golden brown color to it.
Flip each piece and cook for another 7-8 minutes on the other side or until they are cooked through and serve.
If you have leftovers, store the fliets in the fridge in an airtight container for a day or too.
For optimal freshness, salmon is best eaten when first cooked. Thawed and reheated salmon can become dry and the texture can become rubbery when it's reheated.
However, if you decide to freeze cooked salmon anyway, it should thaw in the fridge over night before reheating. Wrap it in foil and reheat it slowly in a 350F over just until warm.

Are Artichokes Keto?

What are the Health Benefits in Salmon?
There're many health benefits in adding salmon to your weekly meal planning. Some nutritionists even call salmon a brain superfood.
Salmon is a very healthy source of protein, which is needed for proper bone health and prevention of muscle loss. Salmon provides approximately 30 grams of protein per 5 ounce serving.
It's also rich in omega-3, "which have been shown to reduce inflammation, lower blood pressure and decrease risk factors for disease," according to this article on Healthline.
What's the Difference in Wild vs. Farm Raised Salmon?
Wild caught means the fish are raised naturally in the ocean or fresh water and feeds off things in nature. If you have access to buy wild-caught, it's preferred over farm-raised.
Farm raised salmon have come a long way over the past several years and is perfectly safe to eat, but it does have a less rich flavor as wild caught because it is raised in closed areas and fed pellets made from fish meal and grains.
