Preparation: 15 minutes
Cooking: 20 minutes
Total: 35 minutes



  • 4 salmon fillets (about 6 oz each)
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • zest of 1 lemon
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 2 tbsp olive oil, divided
  • 1 cup cooked lentils
  • 4 cups baby spinach
  • 1 lemon, sliced (for garnish)


  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. In a small bowl, combine the breadcrumbs, parsley, minced garlic, lemon zest, salt, and black pepper.

  3. Brush each salmon fillet with olive oil, and then press the gremolata mixture onto the top of each fillet to create a crust.

  4. Place the salmon fillets on the prepared baking sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes, or until the crust is golden and the salmon is cooked through.

  5. While the salmon is baking, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the cooked lentils and sauté for 2-3 minutes until heated through.

  6. Add the baby spinach to the skillet and cook until wilted, about 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

  7. Serve the gremolata-crusted salmon over a bed of lentils and spinach. Garnish with lemon slices.

  8. Enjoy!
