Ingredients

  • 24 ounces salmon fillets four fillets 6 ounces each, skin off
  • 8 ounces crabmeat drained well lump, claw or backfin
  • 4 ounces cream cheese softened use regular not whipped
  • 1 large egg whipped
  • 1 tablespoon mayonnaise
  • ½ cup baby spinach cooked with excess liquid squeezed out
  • 1 tablespoon roasted red peppers diced (or fresh red pepper)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees

  • When spinach is cool squeeze out all of the water from the spinach (excess water will make the stuffing loose)

  • fold in the spinach, roasted peppers, shredded mozzarella and crab meat (make sure crab meat has been well-drained, squeezing out any excess water). Mix gently and if the mixture is too loose you may add a little bread crumb to tighten it up.

  • portion stuffing out and place on top of salmon fillet, then sprinkle breadcrumbs on top.
  • pour a little water on the baking dish to help keep the salmon moist while it's cooking
