When thinking up new salmon recipes, we look for inspiration every where, even the local Costco. Costco sells crab-stuffed salmon year-round. Growing up, my parents would buy it on rare occasions, and it was always delicious. Heather and I often pick up salmon from Costco, but we’ve never bought the crab-stuffed salmon because we weren’t thrilled by the ingredient list.
Thankfully, we recently perfected our homemade mayonnaise recipe. It works as an amazing binder for recipes just like this one. We thoroughly recommend this salmon, as it’s a delicious dish that is great for a quiet night at home or for entertaining family and friends. With very little preparation, you’ll be enjoying this for dinner and wow’ing everyone in no time.
Slice your salmon fillet into 3 approximately 1/2 lb cuts of salmon. Slice the center of each fillet fully to create a pocket in the salmon for crab stuffing. Preheat your oven to 350°F.
In a bowl, mix the crab meat, mayonnaise, onion, garlic, and dill.
Fill the salmon fillets with the crab mixture, and lightly dust the top with paprika.
Place your filled salmon fillets on a pan lined with parchment paper, and bake for 25 minutes.
Allow to rest 3-5 minutes and then plate.
This crab stuffed salmon is a satisfying meal on its own, but also goes well with a side of salad or asparagus. We know you’ll enjoy it! Be sure to try this, and our other salmon recipes, the next time you’re in the mood for seafood.
