Salmon stuffed with spinach, mozzarella and cream cheese served with Shrimp Alfredo

This creamy Shrimp Stuffed Salmon is an elegant meal made super easy. Shrimp is mixed with a garlic and spinach cream cheese filling and stuffed inside a salmon filet, then baked to perfection. With minimal ingredients and clean up, you’ll look like a top chef!
This recipe looks like something you’d get at a fancy seafood restaurant, but is actually easy to make for a weeknight meal. It was inspired by my love of seafood stuffed fish but crab is outrageously priced at the moment. This is much more affordable but still feels like a fancy meal.

 

INGREDIENTS:

4 (6-oz.) salmon fillets
Salt
black pepper
1/2 (8-oz.) block cream cheese, softened
1/2 c. shredded mozzarella
1/2 c. frozen spinach, defrosted
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
Pinch of red pepper flakes
2 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
2 tbsp. butter
Juice of 1/2 lemon

 

DIRECTIONS:

Season salmon all over with salt and pepper. In a large bowl, mix together cream cheese, mozzarella, spinach, garlic powder, and red pepper flakes.
Using a paring knife, slice a slit in each salmon to create a pocket. Stuff pockets with cream cheese mixture.
In a large skillet over medium heat, heat oil. Add salmon skin side down and cook until seared, about 6 minutes, then flip salmon. Add butter and squeeze lemon juice all over. Cook until skin is crispy, another 6 minutes. Serve warm
