Spring may be a few weeks away…but we have yet to see much proof of that. In the meantime, I am continuing to find hearty, healthy, and simply delicious winter recipes that not only fill our bellies but also our home with the most amazing aromas. This One Skillet Spinach and Artichoke Salmon is the perfect example of all of the above. Plus you guys have been loving our one skillet recipes like this one and this one so we thought we could continue the trend!
What I love about this recipe: It is sort of like eating spinach artichoke dip for dinner, but substituting the heavy cream with coconut milk subtracts the guilt but leaves the rich creaminess! Simply simmer the sauce and bake the salmon and you will have dinner in under 30 minutes! Plus, it is from one of my favorite food blogs: Half Baked Harvest.
Enjoy this dish with a side of roasted potatoes or over cauliflower rice to sneak an extra veggie in there!
