Crab Stuffed Salmon with Lobster Sauce
by: Richard Massey
I served this dish at an event I catered and people are still talking about it.
The lobster base used in the sauce can be found at stores offering specialty foods or you can order it off the internet. If you’re really ambitious, you could also make your own lobster stock and reduce it. Using it in place of the clam juice. Then chop up the lobster and use it in the sauce and stuffing.
I hope you enjoy this recipe.
6 cuts Salmon (5-6oz fillet cut)
Crab stuffing — see below

Cut a pocket in the side of the salmon large enough for the crab stuffing.
Gently place the crab stuffing in the pocket evenly.
