I know, I know.. I've been gone for a minute. But for good reason. Lol but that's a story for another day. Anywhooo I posted a picture of this Salmon to my story and the people went CRAZY in my dms! so it's only right that I bring it to the blog. This salmon is juicy, flavorful and delicious. With bites of crab and cheese in every bite. Babyyyyyyy you have to try it.
My dms went crazy for this recipe so you know I had to deliver. And just for y’all, I put measurements 😉 I hope you guys enjoy!
What you'll need
- Atlantic Salmon fillets (I prefer thicker slices with a nice width)
- Crab claw meat or lump crab meat. (I prefer lump crab)
- 1/2 cup of Spinach
- 5 cloves of garlic
- 1 block of softened cream cheese
- 1/2 cup of Parmesan Cheese
- 1/4 cup of Italian cheese mix
- 2 stalks of chopped green onions
- the juice of 1 lemon
-4 tbs of butter
- garlic powder
- onion powder
- Old Bay
Tony's Creole seasoning
- cayenne pepper
In a hot pan, add some olive oil and sauté your spinach.
Once the spinach begins to cook, add in your garlic and seasoning of choice (I used Tony's, and some garlic powder and a little salt)
Next add softened cream cheese to a bowl and add your spinach mixture.
NOTE-- Allow your spinach mixture to cool before adding it to your cream cheese.
Next season your cream cheese mixture. Using, garlic powder, onion powder, Tony's, Smoked Paprika, Old Bay, Cayenne Pepper and mix well
Add about a handful of shredded Parmesan Cheese and Crab meat and fold into the filling mixture
Finish off by adding in green onions and a squeeze a half of lemon into the mixture.
Rinse your salmon and pat dry
To create pockets; make sure you cut in the center of each fillet horizontally, so both top and bottom have the same thickness
Stuff salmon with about 1-2 spoonfuls of the filling. (don't be stingy)
Once filled, season each fillet and massage seasoning into the creases and crevices.
Cook on 400 degrees for about 25 min. then turn on broiler for about 5 mins until golden brown.
Once finished, squeeze the other half of lemon over the salmon.
Serve with mashed potatoes and asparagus.
