Salmon Casserole, great for company! Sooo German and sooo delicious!
Yum

This delicious Salmon Casserole with Spinach, aka Überbackener Lachs mit Spinat, is so easy and healthy. A great party dish as well as a special weekday treat. This really is one of the easy ways to cook salmon. The recipe looks long and complicated, but it really isn't. The nutmeg makes it unusual, but that's what makes it so German. Top the dish with some dill and enjoy!

Being German, it uses cream, heavy cream that is. The recipe calls for whipping cream, but using 18% should be fine as well.

Oma's Salmon Casserole with Spinach❤️

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb salmon fillets
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 lb frozen spinach, thawed and well drained
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 Tbsp butter
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 Tbsp flour
  • 1 cup cream
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1½ lbs potatoes, cooked and thickly sliced
  • ⅓ lb Emmental, grated
  • salt, pepper, nutmeg

Instructions:

  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Grease casserole dish.
  • Cut salmon into bite-size pieces and sprinkle with lemon juice, salt, and pepper.
  • In frying pan, sauté onion in butter until translucent. Add garlic. Stir in flour and cook briefly.
  • Mix 1 cup cream and ¾ cup milk. Add to frying pan and whisk until smooth.
  • Add half the cheese to the sauce. Season with salt, pepper, and generous amount of nutmeg. Remove from heat.
  • Whisk eggs with remaining ¼ cup milk and stir into sauce.
  • Put potatoes in casserole. Spoon a bit of sauce over potatoes. Cover with spinach. Evenly spread salmon pieces over top.
  • Spoon remaining sauce over top. Sprinkle with remaining cheese.
  • Bake, uncovered about 35 minutes. Cheese and sauce should be bubbly and salmon should flake when cut.
  • Serves 4

Hints:

  • Use Gouda or Swiss cheese.
  • If you make this ahead of time, put it in the fridge until it's time to bake. You will need to increase the baking time by about 10 minutes.
  • Use a casserole dish that is large and shallow rather than narrow and deep. It will allow the potatoes and spinach to heat up quicker.
  • Use kale instead of spinach.

The casserole is great to make up early in the day of a party and pop it in the oven when you need it.

Cook the potatoes the day before (or use leftovers) to speed things up. Also, if you buy the cheese shredded, it will save you time.
