Shrimp Stuffed Salmon

I love salmon but was looking for a stuffed recipe to try something a little different. I found this paleo one that uses shrimp and almond flour mix for the stuffing base, and it was amazing! Definitely give it a try (Adapted from The Paleo Foodie Kitchen).

Ingredients

  • 2 pieces of salmon (up to a lb.)
  • about 10 medium fresh shrimp (6 oz), peeled, deveined and chopped
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tbsp raw onions, chopped
  • 2 tbsp parsley, chopped
  • 2 tbsp almond flour
  • 2 tbsp lard or butter
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp old bay
  • salt and pepper to taste
  1. Preheat oven to 375F.
  2. Mix the chopped raw shrimp, egg, onions, parsley, almond meal, 1tbsp lard, garlic, old bay, salt and pepper. Set aside.
  3. Lightly season the salmon pieces with salt and pepper. Heat a cast iron pan on high and add the rest of the lard. Pan sear the salmon 1-2 minutes per side.
  4. Move the salmon to an ovenproof dish and top each piece with 2 tbsp (or more!) of the shrimp topping. Lightly brush the top with a little bit of lard and bake in the oven for 15 minutes.
  5. Afterwards, set your oven to broil and cook for about 3 more minutes until the top becomes crispy.
