For the salmon:

  • 2 TSP lemon zest

  • 2 TBS melted butter

  • 1-2 TSP Old Bay seasoning

For the crab stuffing:

  • 8 oz lump crab meat (canned is ok)

  • 1/2 large yellow or brown onion, finely chopped

  • 2 TBS butter

  • 2 TBS mayonnaise

  • 2 TBS fresh parsley, chopped

  • 3 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 TBS fresh lemon juice

  1. Preheat your oven to 400° F.

  2. Line a baking sheet with foil or parchment paper.

  3. Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat and sauté the onion until softened and translucent, about 7-10 minutes.

  4. Combine the mayonnaise, minced garlic, fresh parsley, lemon juice, panko and Old Bay seasoning In a bowl and whisk together.

  5. Add the sautéed onion and fold in the crab meat.

  6. Place the salmon on the baking sheet and sprinkle with 1 TSP of the Old Bay.

  7. Spoon the crab mixture lengthwise down the middle of the salmon.

  8. Fold the salmon over lengthwise so it looks like a log roll.

  9. Sprinkle the remaining 1 TSP of Old Bay over the top of the salmon.

  10. Whisk the melted butter and lemon zest and brush onto the top of the salmon.

  11. Bake approximately 16-20 minutes, until the fish is cooked and easily flakes with a fork. Sprinkle with additional fresh parsley.
