Francine’s Baked Salmon with
Spinach Parmesan and Artichoke Dip
Here’s how Francine, from Costco’s research
and development group, cooks salmon at home.
1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Place salmon, skin side
down, in a large, shallow ovenproof dish coated
with cooking spray. Season with salt and pepper.
2. Mix spinach dip with garlic in a small bowl;
spread evenly over the salmon.
3. Mix Parmesan and bread crumbs in a small
bowl. Sprinkle over the spinach mixture. The
salmon can be prepared 2-3 hours before baking
and kept covered in the refrigerator.
4. Bake about 20 minutes, or until salmon registers
145°F in the center. Makes 6-8 servings.
Tip: The cooking temperature and timing is a
good rule of thumb for baking fish that’s always
juicy and perfectly done. Using a thermometer
assures best results for fish and meat.
