Bonefish Grill Recipe: Salmon topped with Spinach, Bacon & Gorgonzola Bleu Cheese



4-6 8 oz. portions Salmon Filets
4 Cups Raw Spinach
2 oz. Olive Oil
Salt (pinch)
8-12 oz. (2 oz. per fish portion) Crumbled Gorgonzola Bleu Cheese
4-6 Tbsp (1 Tbsp per fish portion) Bacon (diced, cooked)
4-6 oz. (1 oz. per fish portion) Lemon Butter (see below for recipe)

Season Salmon and cook to desired temperature.
After you place the salmon on the grill, sauté the spinach with olive oil, garlic and a pinch of salt.
When salmon is almost done, top with sautéed spinach and crumbled Gorgonzola cheese. Cover and allow cheese to melt. Pull salmon off the grill and place on a serving platter.
Top with lemon butter and cooked/diced bacon.

Lemon Butter Sauce Ingredients:
1/2 Cup Dry White Wine
1/4 Cup Heavy Cream
3 tsp. Salt
3 Tbsp Lemon Juice
10 Tbsp Unsalted Butter (Chilled)

Simmer wine and lemon juice for 15 minutes.
Slowly add cream and cook until slightly thick.
Turn heat to low and slowly whisk in chilled butter until the sauce emulsifies.


  1. There HAS to be a typo in the lemon butter recipe....theres NO WAY this would taste good with 3 t salt in it! Believe me, i tried it! Wasted a lot of butter and cream trying to save it....and i only added 1t! Please tell me this is a mistake.....

    1. Oh no, I'm so sorry your dish didn't turn out. I make this dish often, it's a favorite whenever we have guests! There is no typo in the ingredients for the sauce. It's 3 teaspoons of salt. With all of the ingredients required for the sauce there's no way only 1tsp of salt would be able to add the flavor it would need, so it's understandable that it wouldn't turn out then.
      Trust the recipe and you'll end up with a dish that is just like the one they make at Bonefish.
      Best of luck!

  2. The rest of the dish was wonderful, but wasnt able to use the sauce....was out of butter to try a different recipe...

    1. Were you using a teaspoon or a tablespoon? If you used a tablespoon that might be why it didn't turn out? I'm going to try this recipe tonight so I hope it turns out.

  3. When is the salt added to the sauce? I made this dish tonight and served it without the sauce because it was way too salty. Still yummy without sauce.
