Wednesday’s Specials: Baked Zucchini with Ricotta, Salmon and Cherry Tomatoes

@pfairytale Zucchini with ricotta, salmon, mozzarella and bacon

I wanted to make a slightly different dish, something closer to a zucchini lasagna with ricotta but because of a lack of the main ingredients from the store I visited before starting to cook I had to adapt. I added salmon to the mix and some zucchini cubes, did not roll the slices and added the bacon. Frankly, I have never tasted a simple dish which was not improved by bacon 😉

@pfairytale Zucchini with ricotta, salmon, mozzarella and bacon


  • 1 small zucchini
  • 250g of ricotta
  • 100g smoked salmon
  • 1 tbsp grated parmesan
  • 10 slices of mozzarella
  • 5 slices of bacon
  • 250g cherry tomatoes


1. Cut the zucchini in thin slices and bake them in the oven until slightly golden and soft.
2. Mix the ricotta with salmon and parmesan. Add dices of zucchini if you like them.
3. Layer a baking tray with the zucchini slices, top them up with the ricotta mix, cover each with two slices of mozzarella (it will melt and hold everything together) and one of bacon. Add the cherry tomatoes.
4. Bake until mozzarella has melted and bacon is becoming golden.

I served them with a garnish (I had Denisa as a guest and I did not have any appetizers) of butter fried basmati rice (a trick I learned from a French restaurant) and some sautéed spinach with chili flakes and black pepper.
