Cajun Butter Sauce

* Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Keep aside.
* Drizzle the salmon filets with 1 tablespoon of oil, then season with salt, pepper, smoked paprika and Cajun seasoning on both sides. Cut a slit through the middle of each salmon fillet, but not all the way through, about two-thirds of its total length. Keep aside.
* Squeeze excess liquid out of the spinach and discard it.
* In a medium bowl, combine the spinach with Boursin cheese, jalapeno, crab meat, parmesan cheese, and garlic. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Keep aside.
* Put the shrimp in a medium-sized bowl. Add the remaining 1 tablespoon of oil, Cajun seasoning, smoked paprika, salt, and pepper. Mix everything together. Keep aside.

* Stuff the salmon fillets with the crab mixture, and top with the seasoned shrimp. Transfer on the prepared baking sheet and pour the cajun butter over the salmon.
* Bake for 15-17 minutes or until salmon is cooked through, opaque in center and flakes easily with fork.

* Serve with lemon wedges.
