I found this recipe at the back of a smokey salmon package from Trader Joe’s and it was an instant keeper, mydinnertoday material! It takes 20 minutes to make and all you need to have is stuff in your freezer -frozen salmon and frozen spinach- and heavy cream. You will always find these basic 3 ingredients in my fridge so this is a recipe I can cook anytime I have 20 minutes without any planning. It tastes amazing and my whole family loves it. The ingredients below is for the double version with 2 bags of spinach and 4 pieces of salmon.
