A few days ago a friend of mine asked me for this Crab Stuffed Salmon Recipe. I made it for the first time about a year ago for a holiday dinner. It tastes delicious, it’s filling, and a healthy meal option. I used Pacific Salmon to create this recipe. It’s easy to overcook and dry salmon out, so make sure to keep a watchful eye on the oven!
Salmon tastes really good, but did you know it’s good for you? Salmon is rich in Omega-3 fatty acids, potassium, selenium and vitamin B12. Omega-3 is vital to proper brain function and heart health. Omega-3 can also help fight against Cancer and lower the risk of many chronic diseases. So if you like to eat fish, salmon would be a great choice!
I chose to use fresh herbs to compliment this dish, and you can read all about why you should use fresh herbs as well here!
- 4 Salmon Fillets
- 1 cup of claw or lump crab meat
- 1/2 cup of fresh minced parsley
- 1 tablespoon of fresh dill
- 2 fresh garlic cloves minced
- 1 cup of Panko bread crumbs
- 1 tablespoon of fresh squeezed lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon of dijon mustard
- Salt & Pepper
- Olive oil for drizzling
- Preheat oven to 400F
- Put oil or cooking spray on the bottom of your baking dish to prevent sticking
- Create the filling by mixing the crab, parsley, dill, garlic, bread crumbs, lemon juice, and mustard
- Cut each salmon fillet about an inch in lengthwise and an inch on each side to create a pocket
- Stuff each fillet with the crab meat filling
- Sprinkle with salt & pepper
- Drizzle with Olive Oil
- Bake Salmon for about 20 minutes until done
My Crab Stuffed Salmon Recipe is healthy, easy to make, and great for Sunday dinner. You can serve it with a side of vegetables of your choice, I chose asparagus. The entire family enjoys it!
