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 too fine
  • 1/8 tsp pepper
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp parsley flakes
  • 3 Tbsp butter
Instructions
  1. 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, mix. Add the minced garlic, mix. Add the oil, mix.
  2. Turn salmon upside down. Brush the bottom with the salmon seasoning.
  3. 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).
  4. Distribute the rest of the salmon seasoning between the pieces of salmon. Add to sides as well as tops.
  5. Prepare the crab stuffing:
  6. Cut the crab meat into smaller pieces (don’t chop too thin though).
  7. Chop the celery into tiny pieces. As small as you can get them.
  8. Add all of the ingredients for the crab stuffing in a bowl. Mix.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. Right before serving, pour melted butter over each salmon/crab.
  12. 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;)..
