I don’t know about you, but I love the crab & shrimp stuffed salmon you get at Costco. It is SO GOOD!! They do not always have it in stock, so when they do it’s quite a treat for me. I purchase my salmon there and I decided to do a “Lorification” of the Costco salmon. I have to admit, it came out pretty darn good.
3 oz cream cheese, softened
1 can lump crab meat
2 Tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
1/4 medium red onion, chopped
2 cloves fresh garlic, minced
6 large shrimp, cut into bite sized pieces
2 Tablespoons capers (optional)
1/3 cup of white cooking wine
2 – 8 oz salmon steaks

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Take the softened cream cheese and mash it up a bit so it’s more of a creamy consistency.
In a medium mixing bowl, add the crab, parsley onion, garlic and shrimp. Mix together.
Fold in the softened cream cheese. Add salt and pepper to taste.
In a medium to large baking dish, add the cooking wine. Slit the steaks down the center to form a bowl for the stuffing. Place the steaks in the bowl.
You’ll notice the one on the right has extra green things in it. They are capers and I love capers with salmon and crab. Since hubby thinks they are disgusting, I added some to my serving. I love the zingy tangy taste of those little green gems and I’ll add them to just about anything.
Bake them in the oven for 20-25 minutes (depending on the size of your salmon steaks) at 350 degrees. Check with a meat thermometer to be sure they are cooked through.
I topped it with some sriracha sauce (1 cup mayonnaise, 1-2 Tablespoons Sriracha, 3 Tablespoons fat free half & half) and a sprinkling of parsley. I served it with a side of couscous. This was a great sauce for salmon!
The wine that I added to the baking dish kept the salmon moist while adding some amazing flavor. This is not an exact replica of the Costco crab and shrimp stuffed salmon since I do not know all the ingredients they use, but I think mine is better. Try it out and tell me what you think.
