This is one of my favorite ways to make Salmon. It’s easy to make but works great when you’re ready to impress dinner guests. Homemade crab filling is the way to go to bring your broiled salmon to the next level.


2 salmon fillets

1 container of lump jumbo crab meat

1tsp fresh cracked black pepper

1 teaspoon salt ( to taste )

1/2 cup panko

2 tablespoons of old bay ( use no salt if you do this )

2 tablespoons of JO Spice ( use salt if you do this )

1 teaspoon of mayo

2 tablespoons of butter

2 teaspoons minced parsley

1 lemon


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees

1 – Make the Crab Stuffing

Add crab meat, spice , optional salt, panic and mayo together

Gently mix – don’t mix too hard or you’ll break up your lumps

2 – Prep the salmon

Use a knife to create a slit that will serve as a pocket for your stuffing

Open the slit and pack the crab into the salmon fillet.

You can be very generous with this.

Butter the pan where you will put the salmon

Lay your fillets on the pan and place in the oven

3 – Bake for 15 minutes

Then switch the oven to broil.

4-Let the fish broil for 6 – 8 minutes. It will be ready when you see the crab stuffing begin to brown

5 – Garnish with parsley and lemon
