Looking to elevate a classic salmon fillet? Add feta and fresh herbs!

Feta and fish may seem like an unlikely pair, but this recipe doesn’t call for the typical crumbly feta cheese that you find on Greek salads. No, these fresh-caught fillets from Heinen’s Seafood Department are coated in a layer of Heinen’s Bulgarian feta.

Feta & Herb Salmon Ingredients

What is Bulgarian feta? It’s a feta-style cheese that can be made with cow, sheep or goat milk. Its creamier than traditional Greek feta and features a salty, tangy flavor! The Bulgarian feta carried at Heinen’s is made with sheep’s milk and is by far one of the best on the market.

Feta & Herb Salmon

Mixed with an assortment of fresh herbs, evenly spread on top of the salmon and cooked in the oven for only 20 minutes, this is a fast way to give baked salmon a simple refresh.
