Creamy cejun stuffed salmon

Creamy Cajun stuffed salmon is a delicious and flavorful dish that features tender salmon fillets stuffed with a creamy and spicy Cajun filling. This dish is perfect for a special dinner or a seafood lover’s feast.

To make creamy Cajun stuffed salmon, start by preheating your oven to 375°F (190°C). In a bowl, mix together cream cheese, Cajun seasoning, minced garlic, chopped green onions, and shredded Parmesan cheese until well combined.

Cut a pocket into each salmon fillet, being careful not to cut all the way through. Stuff each salmon fillet with the creamy Cajun mixture, pressing the mixture into the pocket gently to ensure it’s well filled.

Place the stuffed salmon fillets on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Drizzle olive oil over the top of each fillet and sprinkle with additional Cajun seasoning.

Bake the salmon in the preheated oven for about 12-15 minutes, or until the salmon is cooked through and flakes easily with a fork.

Serve the creamy Cajun stuffed salmon hot, garnished with chopped fresh parsley and lemon wedges. This dish pairs well with rice, steamed vegetables, or a fresh salad. Enjoy the creamy and spicy flavors of this delicious stuffed salmon!
