2 tsp. extra-virgin olive oil

½ zucchini, sliced into thin rounds

2 skinless, boneless salmon fillets, about 6 oz. each

2 lbs. spinach, cooked

1 whole hard-cooked egg, peeled and sliced

Salt and freshly ground black pepper



Heat a small amount of the olive oil in a sauté pan over medium heat. Sauté the zucchini rounds lightly in the oil, adding a little salt; do not allow the zucchini to color.


Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Place a 12-by-16-inch sheet of parchment paper on a baking sheet. Place a salmon fillet on one end of the rectangle. Season the salmon with salt and pepper. Place half the spinach atop the salmon, then the egg slices, then the remaining spinach. Top with the second salmon fillet. To enclose in the parchment paper, fold the paper over the fish and make small, tight, overlapping folds all along the open ends, sealing the envelope. Bake in the oven for 15 to 25 minutes or until the fish is cooked through.

To Serve

Remove from the oven and open the packet. Place the stuffed salmon on a serving dish and cover it with the sautéed zucchini slices, arranging them to look like fish scales.
