Enjoy this elegant Crab Stuffed Salmon dinner that features tasty crab meat in a creamy filling, all stuffed into tender baked salmon fillets! The salmon turns out beautifully with a crunchy Panko topping and rich, flavorful stuffing like you'd expect at a fine seafood restaurant!
1 large egg
green onion (finely chopped)
Combine wet ingredients and seasoning. Measure the following ingredients into a mixing bowl: egg, cream cheese, mayonnaise, lemon pepper, paprika, salt, and pepper. Stir or whisk until well combined.
Fold in the crab meat. Next, add the crab, green onion, panko, and parsley. Fold these in gently until well distributed throughout the stuffing mixture.
Stir in Parmesan and chill. Lastly, add the Parmesan cheese and stir. Cover the bowl with cling film and refrigerate to chill for about 30 minutes.
Slice the center of each fillet. To make room for the stuffing, use a sharp knife to make an opening down the center of each fillet, only half-way through.
Stuff the fillets. Give the stuffing a quick stir, then spoon the crab filling into each fillet, adding extra over the top of each piece. Sprinkle a bit more paprika for color, if desired.
Bake and broil. Bake the salmon in the oven at 350°F (175°C) for 15-18 minutes. You can place them under the broiler for a few minutes at the end, to create a crunchy finish and add a bit more color to the crisped topping.
Garnish and serve immediately. Remove from the oven and garnish with parsley or a bit more Parmesan before serving.
