Crab-Stuffed Salmon

November 7, 2013

1 Crab-Stuffed Salmon (7)

This is an amazing Salmon recipe – very elegant!  This is a meal that would cost you a pretty penny at a seafood restaurant but can be prepared at home for much much less.  An extra bonus – it only takes minutes to prepare and only 20 minutes to cook.  Try it once and I know you will be hooked!!  Served with a side salad makes for a very healthy meal.

(Ingredients in pictures shown have been cut down to 2 servings)

1 Crab-Stuffed Salmon (8)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Spray a shallow baking pan with cooking spray.

1/2 pound imitation crab meat, flaked

1/2 cup Italian breadcrumbs

1/2 tsp. onion powder

1/4 tsp. garlic granules

1 tsp. fresh parsley, chopped

1/4 cup Brummel and Brown butter, melted

In a medium bowl, combine all ingredients, except salmon.

1 Crab-Stuffed Salmon (9)

6  (6 oz.) salmon fillets

Cut a slit lengthwise 3/4 of the way through each salmon fillet.

1 Crab-Stuffed Salmon (10)

Evenly divide stuffing into each slit.

1 Crab-Stuffed Salmon (11)

(I stuck toothpicks into the open edge in hopes of holding it together.  I didn’t want the top to buckle up.  Not sure if this was necessary or not!)

Sprinkle tops of fillets with seasoned salt, garlic granules and pepper.

1 Crab-Stuffed Salmon (6)

Bake 20 minutes, or until fish flakes easily.  Be careful not to  over cook as this will dry out the fish.

Serve with fresh lime or lemon.

WEIGHT WATCHERS:  Of course points will depend on the size of your salmon fillets.  The total PointsPlus for the crab filling is 14  (2.3 per serving).  Weigh your fillets and add this in.  My fillets were a little over 7 oz. so our total PointsPlus were 8.5 per serving.
