Ingredients

  • 4 salmon fillets
  • 8 ounces of crabmeat drained well I used claw meat
  • 4 ounces cream cheese softened use regular not whipped
  • 1 large egg whipped
  • 1 tablespoon mayonnaise
  • 1 1/2 cups baby spinach
  • 1 tablespoon roasted red peppers diced
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese or your favorite cheese
  • 1 teaspoon old bay seasoning
  • sea salt and black pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons seasoned bread crumbs

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • cook spinach in a little bit of water till fully cooked, take off the heat and allow to cool
  • When spinach is cool squeeze out all of the water from the spinach (excess water will make the stuffing loose)
  • in a mixing bowl add in the softened cream cheese, mayonnaise, egg and old bay seasoning. Whip together until well blended.
  • 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.
  • place salmon on a baking sheet and season with salt and pepper
  • 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
  • cook salmon at 350 degrees for 18-22 minutes. salmon should be done but not overcooked
  • serve with your favorite sides
