This gourmet crab and shrimp stuffed salmon recipe will save you the trip and the money to a swanky, 5-star restaurant. This seafood medley is as easy as it is indulgent and will satiate any epicurean craving.
The recipe is a fusion in both flavor and theme. Brown sugar and honey combine with garlic and cilantro notes, distinctly but coherently blending both sweet and savory notes to effortlessly create rich and decadent flavors. Further Italian blended cheeses and dressing couple with teriyaki sauce and panko crumbs, fusing both Italian and Japanese food palettes.
I love brown sugar in traditionally savory dishes, as it adds depth to the overall flavor of the meal. Teriyaki sauce has become a go-to for my brown sugar based dishes as the flavor pairs perfectly with sweet notes. I added panko crumbs to the top of this dish to add a crisp texture to the melt-melt-in-your-mouth quality of the rest of the stuffing and filets.
I made this dish for Valentine’s Day, accompanied by fettucine and spinach in a light white wine garlic sauce. This salmon is the perfect centerpiece for a romantic evening at home with a significant other or for when you just want to indulge your appetite with a gourmet meal.
Try it with a side of greens or pasta (or both) and a glass of white wine.
