Crab Stuffed Salmon with Lobster Sauce

I served this dish at an event I catered and people are still talking about it a year later. 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.

Serves 6

6 cuts Salmon (5-6oz fillet cut)

Crab stuffing

Lobster sauce

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

Place salmon in a baking pan and bake salmon at 350° F for approx. 15 minutes or until the internal temperature is 140° F. Place on plates or serving tray. Ladle lobster sauce over the top.
