I adore seafood and salmon in particular. I usually go to my old standby recipe with salmon, which is to season it and broil it and then scarf it down, feeling like it is the food of the gods. But, sometimes when I shop at Costco, I see that they have salmon that is stuffed with a crab stuffing. SALMON WITH CRAB STUFFING! I know it sounds too good to be true. The price for this heavenly concoction is definitely out of my budget. I mean, sometimes, just the salmon alone is out of my budget. But, to add crab takes it over the top. Yet, I was determined that I had to make the dream of eating this unbelievable combination a reality.
Well, here is how it finally happened! My local grocery store, (Fry's) sometimes runs a sale at their meat counter. All of the meat and seafood from the counter is 25% off! So, that meant that the salmon, which was normally $8.99 per lb was only $6.75 per lb. I decided that was acceptable and purchased a couple of sides. The imitation crab was also on sale! It was like the heavens had opened and everything had fallen into place to allow me to enjoy this amazing dish! Now all I had to do was bring the fish home and figure out how to make the stuffing and how I was going to stuff the salmon. Here is how I did it. Click the button for the printable stuffing recipe.

I added a vegetable on the side, and I was able to enjoy the delicious taste of the salmon, blended with the sweetness of the crab mixed with the great seasonings in the stuffing! My dream had come true!
Another nice thing about this stuffing recipe is that it tastes good on its own! There was enough left over after I stuffed the salmon that I was able to bake it in a small casserole dish. My husband loved eating it for lunch the next day. So, it would be a great side dish besides a stuffing.

So, when the heavens open and the sales happen for you at the perfect moment, I hope you can give this recipe a try!
