Spinach-Stuffed Baked Salmon

1 teaspoon olive oil
2 ounces fresh spinach leaves
1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
1/4 cup chopped roasted red bell peppers, rinsed and drained if bottled
1/4 cup fresh coarsely chopped basil leaves
2 tablespoons chopped walnuts
4 salmon fillets (about 4 ounces each), rinsed and patted dry with paper towels
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons plain dry bread crumbs
1/2 teaspoon dried crumbled oregano
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon pepper

In large skillet, heat oil over medium heat, swirling to coat bottom. Add spinach and lemon zest, and cook for 2 minutes, or until spiniach is wilted, stirring constantly. Transfer to a medium bowl. Stir in bell peppers, basil and walnuts. Let cool for 5 minutes.



Heat oven to 400 degrees. Line baking sheet with aluminum foil, and lightly spray foil with nonstick cooking spray.

Cut a lengthwise slit in the side of each salmon fillet to make a pocket for the stuffing. Be careful to not cut through to the other side.
