CRAB STUFFED SALMON

Salmon stuffed with a Parmesan Cheese Crab filling

Do you like yourself some salmon? How about adding a delicious Parmesan crab stuffing to go with that? Ye pretty much a must try. I love the combination with herbs, crab and salmon.

If you are like me and like to get dinner out of the way earlier in the day this is great to prepare ahead of time. Prepare everything in advance and just bake before serving dinner.

If you like salmon, have you tried the Baked Salmon with Yogurt or the Canapes with Salmon? Good stuff:)

Ingredients:

2 lbs salmon

Salmon seasoning-

1 tsp thyme

1 tsp rosemary

¼ tsp pepper

1 tsp salt

1 tsp parsley flakes

2 garlic cloves, minced

2 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Crab stuffing-

8 oz crab meat

1 celery stick

1 ½ Tbsp breadcrumbs

1 ½ Tbsp Parmesan cheese

1/4 cup mayo

1/4 cup cheese (I use four cheese, mozzarella is fine too)

1/8 tsp pepper

1/4 tsp salt

1 tsp parsley flakes

3 Tbsp butter

Serves: 4

Directions:

Prepare the salmon seasoning:

Add thyme and rosemary to a small bowl. With your fingers crush the herbs a bit to get them into smaller pieces. Add the pepper, salt, parsley flakes and mix. Add the minced garlic and mix again. Add the oil and mix yet again.

Turn salmon upside down. Brush the bottom with the salmon seasoning.

Brush salmon with seasoning

Turn salmon back over and cut the salmon into four equal pieces. Make an opening in the middle of each salmon (don’t cut in half, crab stuffing will just fall apart). Distribute the rest of the salmon seasoning between the pieces of salmon. Add to sides as well as tops.

Cut salmon in four then make opening

Slice salmon

Prepare the crab stuffing:

Cut the crab meat into smaller pieces (don’t chop too thin though).  Chop the celery into tiny pieces.

Gently open salmon. Stuff completely with crab stuffing. Do this to all four pieces. Add the rest on top but keep the meat together in the middle. You can sprinkle some freshly grated pepper or parsley flakes atop the crab if you would like.

Stuff with crab stuffing

Bake covered 15 minutes in preheated oven to 365°F. Remove foil and bake another 15-20 minute. DON’T over bake. Salmon will be too dry. Right before serving melt butter and pour over each salmon/crab.

Bake salmon

Dig in. Oh but do share with your loved ones, it’s very tempting to just devour it all yourself. I know the feeling… Hehe;)..
