  • Step 2

    Combine cream cheese, feta cheese, spinach, and scallions in a small mixing bowl. Mash ingredients until well blended.

  • Step 3

    Cut salmon fillet into 2 equal pieces. Brush the top of one piece with olive oil and place oiled side down in the prepared baking dish. Spread filling evenly over top; it will be about 3/4 inch thick. Place the second piece of salmon on the filling and brush the top with olive oil.

  • Step 4

    Bake in the preheated oven until fish flakes evenly with a fork and filling is hot, 20 to 30 minutes. The time will depend on the size and weight of salmon used; check progress at 20 minutes to determine if additional baking time is needed.

  • Step 5

    Remove from the oven and slice into 2 pieces to serve.
