Salmon and spinach lasagna recipe

This special recipe comes from Belgian chef, Dirk De Cuyper. Now a resident of Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Dirk was formerly a sought-after chef creating delicious meals aboard luxury yachts.

This recipe features homemade lasagna (you’ll find the recipe here) but of course,you can use a fresh, high quality, commercial brand if you wish.

The chef recommends this as a main course for lunch, or smaller portions can be served as an appetizer.
