Step 1: Prepare the spinach

In a bowl, mix the cream cheese, chopped spinach, sun dried tomatoes, Gruyère cheese, chives, and juice of the lemon.

Step 2: Stuff the salmon fillets

Cut each Alaska salmon fillet horizontally in center to make a cavity to place the stuffing. (Do not cut all the way through the fish.) Spoon some spinach stuffing into each salmon cavity.
