Introduction: Salmon and Spinach No-fuss Souffle
With those cans of salmon fish just sitting in the cupboard. And with no cooking inspiration in sight, this is the best thing to make, plus it's super easy and very quick. Cheesy and rich this is the way to go.
Lets get cooking!
Step 1: Ingredients
For this recipe you will need:
2 cans (950 grams) of pink salmon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
100 ml Milk
3 Tablespoons flour
50 grams butter
2 Tablespoons lemon juice
400 grams cooked, drained and chopped spinach
(optional) grated cheese for the top
Step 2: Separating the Eggs
Separate the yolks and whites of the three eggs and whip up the egg white. Be careful not to over whip the egg whites otherwise they will become dry. Just whip until the whites have stiff peaks.
Step 3: Cooking on the Stove
In a pot, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the flour to the melted butter and quickly stir together. Pour in the milk a little bit at a time while still keeping the heat on, stir until combined.
Step 4: Greens
Turn the heat off and add the spinach, egg yolks, lemon juice and pepper to the pot and mix to incorporate all of the ingredients.
Step 5: Time for the Salmon
Make sure those two tins are salmon, not baked beans (otherwise this will be a really strange dish; don't know if we need that). Pour the salmon into the pot and stir it in then take the pot off the stove.
Step 6: The Egg White
Carefully fold the whipped egg white into the pot. To fold cut down the center then around the side about half way (think of the letter 'j') then lift the mixture over, repeating until all of the egg white is well folded in.
Step 7: Prepare Your Dish
Rub butter over the inside of the dish to grease it. Then pour your filling into it and sprinkle the top with some grated cheese. If you are a pepper fan, now is time time to add more on.
Step 8: Cooked and Ready to Serve
Cook your souffle in a 180 C (356 F) oven for 35 minutes or when you poke it with your finger it springs back.
I hope you enjoy your souffle and remember to post a picture in the comments below.
