Stuffed Salmon

Have you ever tried stuffed salmon? I love stuffed salmon, especially if what you are stuffing into the salmon recipe is something really good like spinach and salmon!

Spinach and Salmon

I love spinach and salmon in dishes like salmon florentine. How can I make a salmon and stuff it with spinach? Then the answer came to me, why not make salmon into a pinwheel recipe!

Pinwheel Recipe

What is a pinwheel recipe? Some know a pinwheel recipe as a cookie recipe. But a pinwheel recipe is anything that is twisted into a circle with layers. 

So a pinwheel recipe can be anything. I did a beef pinwheel recipe in my Spicy Italian Stuffed Eye Of Round {Gives Your Roast An Italian Flavor} So salmon pinwheels with feta and spinach would be easy to make!

 

Salmon Pinwheels

Working with the salmon for salmon pinwheels was easier to work with than beef I found out. The salmon is more flexible to shape into the salmon pinwheels. 

Plus this stuffed salmon just has a wonderful taste to it. Spinach and salmon taste wonderful together, then I added the feta for a Mediterranean taste!
