Posted by : Brittney Dieter /
Yield: 6-8 Servings
Wine Paring: 1752 Pinot Grigio from Freas Farms Winery
- 1.5 lb Wild Caught Salmon Fillet
- 1 lb 70/90 peeled de-veined shrimp, roughly chopped
- 1.5 tsp salt
- 1 tsp pepper
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- ½ yellow onion chopped
- ½ tsp each cayenne and oregano flakes
- 1 dash tabasco
- 2 T freshly chopped parsley
- ¼ C gluten free bread crumbs
- ½ C cream cheese, softened
- 1 avocado; peeled and sliced thin
- 1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
- Pre heat oven to 375°
- In a large sauté pan add onion and garlic, cook until onions become translucent. Add shrimp, salt, cayenne, pepper, and oregano flakes. Cook until shrimp is barley pink, about 3-4 minutes. When shrimp is done, turn off burner and add cream cheese, parsley, and bread crumbs. Stir gently to combine.
- Take fillet and lay down on cutting board on the edge of a table. With a sharp knife slice a pocket into the side of the fillet. When you insert the knife into the side do so at an angle so that the pocket inside of the fish is wider than the opening where you inserted the knife. This will help keep all the stuffing inside the filet while it is baking.
- Rub top of fillet with olive oil and season with salt and pepper
- Take shrimp mixture and carefully scoop it inside the pocket. Spread stuffing out evenly.
- Place stuffed fillet in a large baking dish
- Take halved tomatoes and season with salt and pepper, add any leftover onions and herbs, and toss in mixing bowl with olive oil, arrange around fillet and bake in oven for 12-15 min at 375°F. Top each serving with a slice of avocado.
