Ricotta-Stuffed Salmon Roll

Doctors recommend that we eat salmon at least twice a week. My favorite health benefit of salmon, and there are many, is knowing that the omega-3 nutrients can help keep a brain sharp. It’s a little expensive, yes. But in my opinion, health and well-being are always worth splurging on.

I usually eat my salmon atop a bed of fresh pasta and veggies. This is pretty routine for me. Routines are nice some nights, but I’m always looking for something new.

I came across this idea while pinning.

It’s perfect.


-4 oz. salmon (a long, thin slice will work best)

-2 T ricotta

-1 T flowering kale, chopped

-Italian seasonings of choice


-Set oven to broil. Lightly grease a broil-safe pan. Set aside.

-Mix ricotta, kale, and seasonings in a small bowl. Place on the thicker end of the filet. Slowly roll and pin together with oven-safe skewers.

-Broil for about 4-5 minutes or until the salmon has cooked fully. A little pink color is good, but know that the insides of the roll will need more time than the outsides.

Serve warm, possibly atop a bed of pasta if you want to follow suit.
