Cooking Guidelines

To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:

  • Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |

  1. 1

    Start the Mashed Potatoes

    Turn oven on to 425 degrees. Let preheat, at least 10 minutes. Thoroughly rinse any fresh produce and pat dry. Set butter on counter to soften.

    Tear spinach leaves.

    In provided tray, combine mashed potatoes, cream cheese, spinach, and a pinch of salt. Stir vigorously to combine. Cream cheese will melt as meal bakes.

    Bake uncovered in hot oven until spinach is wilted, 10-12 minutes.

    While mashed potatoes bake, continue recipe.

  2. 2

    Add the Salmon

    Finely crush pecans.

    Pat salmon dry. Top flesh side with crushed pecans, pressing gently to adhere.

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. Add salmon, skin side up, to hot pan. Sear until pecans are golden-brown, 2-4 minutes.

    Remove from burner. Carefully remove tray from oven. Vigorously stir mashed potatoes and push to one side.

    Transfer salmon, skin-side down, to now-empty side of tray. Cover mashed potatoes side of tray with foil, leaving salmon uncovered. Tray will be hot! Use a utensil.

  3. 3

    Bake the Meal

    Bake half-covered (mashed potatoes covered, salmon uncovered) in hot oven until salmon is firm and reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 8-10 minutes.

    While meal bakes, in a mixing bowl, combine softened butter and half the smoked maple seasoning (taste and add more, if desired).

    Line a plate with a paper towel. Place bacon on towel-lined plate. Microwave until crisp, 30-60 seconds.

    Carefully remove bacon from microwave and tray from oven. Vigorously stir mashed potatoes to combine.

    To serve, top salmon with maple butter and garnish mashed potatoes with crispy bacon. Bon appétit!
