      The filling was very good and I liked the nutmeg addition. In fact, I added a little extra nutmeg. The salmon took about 15 min. to get done. I enjoyed this but DH thought it was no better than plain fish with no filling. Men! For an alternate presentation,I can see making this again and putting filling on plate and then topping with unfilled, coated salmon. This would be good with tuna or dolphin, too.

      I bought such a lovely whole piece of salmon that I did not cut it into fillets, and instead used it whole, stuffed it, and tied it with string, as the photo shows. You have "goat cheese" in the ingredient list but "mascarpone" in the directions -- I used feta instead. Very nice recipe! If I make this again I might try wrapping the salmon in bacon strips instead of using crumbs, but that's just my idea. Thanks for the recipe!

      I added small shrimp to the cheese and it tasted great.
