What is Shrimp Stuffed Salmon?

Shrimp stuffed salmon is a dish that combines several different types of fish and seafood, with the main ingredient being salmon. The stuffing often includes shrimp, but other options include crab meat, scallops, or lobster.

The stuffing may be baked inside the salmon fillet or wrapped in foil and baked on top of the salmon. The result is a flavorful dish that is sure to impress your guests. You can also stuff the salmon with vegetables like bell peppers, mushrooms or spinach. This dish is a great way for your kids to eat more fish! They’ll be tricked into thinking they are eating chicken when in reality, it’s packed full of protein and nutrients.

Ingredients

  • 2 fillets of wild salmon, about 6 oz. each
  • 1/2 cup shrimp, chopped
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese, grated
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 egg yolk, beaten with 1 tablespoon water (to wash the salmon)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil (for cooking)

How to make Stuffed Salmon with Shrimp

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Season the sides of the salmon with salt and pepper.
  2. Place in a baking dish and bake for about 10 minutes – or until just cooked through.
  3. Remove from oven and set aside to cool slightly. While the salmon is baking, combine chopped shrimp, grated parmesan cheese, salt and pepper in a bowl.
  4. When salmon has cooled slightly, slice it open lengthwise down its center – but don’t cut all the way through! Spoon some filling into each half of the salmon before closing them up again.
  5. Brush with beaten egg mixture, then place back into the oven to finish cooking for another 5 minutes or so – until filling is cooked through.
  6. Serve immediately with lemon wedges if desired.

Tips

  • Flour the salmon before you put the shrimp in it. This will help the outside of the fish not get soggy, and it will also make sure your shrimp is fully cooked by the time they’re done cooking in the oven.
  • Make sure to use a baking sheet when baking your stuffed salmon, and also put foil on top of it for easy cleanup!
  • Make sure that you have all of your ingredients ready before you start cooking so that you don’t have to go looking for things while you’re trying to cook.

What to Serve With?

Serve your shrimp-stuffed salmon with a side of steamed veggies, such as asparagus, broccoli, and carrots. You can also serve it with some white rice or Popeyes mashed potatoes.
