Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Rince salmon filet with water and pat dry.
  2. With a knife, make an incision lengthwise through the filet in order to create a pocket for the stuffing.
  3. In a pan, melt 1 tablespoon of butter with 1 tablespoon of olive oil and saute the mushrooms with onions until golden. Add the garlic and saute for one more minute.
  4. Season with thyme, salt and pepper.
  5. Remove from heat, drain any excess liquids from the sauted mushrooms, chop the cooked mushrooms in small pieces.
  6. Add bread and cheese to mixture.
  7. With a spoon, gently fill the cavity with the mixture.
  8. With remaining tablespoon of oil, coat the outside of the filet, add salt & pepper to taste.
  9. Place the stuffed filet on baking sheet and cook in the oven at 420 for approximately 20-25 minutes, don't overcook or it will become dry.
  10. Gently slice each portion and serve with any white sauce such as bechamel or hollandaise sauce (I used an envelope sauce mix).

I really liked this stuffing with the salmon. I cut this down for two, and used sourdough bread and parmesan cheese instead of cheddar. It really worked out well. I cooked 2 6 oz. portions, and they cooked much quicker. 400 degrees, 10-12 minutes, depends on thickness. I also topped with a drizzle of Hollandaise sauce from a packet. Thank you so much for this great recipe.

Wonderful! There is nothing more I can say but absolutely wonderful! I made using individual filets and served with Sauce Bechamel Aux Champignons (White Sauce With Mushrooms). Menu included twice baked potato and sauteed fresh asparagus. I used dried mushrooms but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. Highly recommend this recipe that will be sure to impress anybody coming for dinner.

This is one of those recipes I would give 10 stars to, if I could! Such an elegant presentation and very easy! The flavors were wonderful. I served mine with a white sauce flavored with tarragon, and some of the mushroom pieces stirred in. I was only serving 2, so I used individual filets. Made for Fall 2008 My-3-Chefs.
