This is a great dish for entertaining and super easy on the GrillGrate Griddle or any griddle.   We find that warehouse clubs and many supermarkets carry crab-cake stuffed salmon in their fish departments. I prefer salmon without skin – this gives the opportunity to get a nice golden sear on both sides.  We always keep an eye out for stuffed salmon.  They do not always have it! We keep at least a meal for two in our freezer and this recipe is something we grill often for dinner guests. It pairs well with asparagus and a salad.

Preheat the grill to MEDIUM with the GrillGrate Griddle in line or on top of the existing GrillGrates. 


The ideal surface temperatures at the GrillGrate should be at 450 - 550F. Too hot and the crab stuffing will burn and crust up before the salmon cooks through.


Spray or wipe the GrillGrate Griddle with canola oil, avocado oil, or Duck Fat Spray 


Place the stuffed salmon on the Griddle and grill for 3-5 minutes. 


Using a spatula or the GrillGrate Combo Tong, slide the tool under the salmon to lift and flip.  The stuffed crab should be a nice golden brown. 


Grill another 4-5 minutes watching the color of the salmon as it goes all pink.  Use an instant-read in the thickest part of the salmon and remove when the internal temperature of the salmon reaches 135-140F. 


Plate and serve immediately.  


 1 Crab-cake stuffed salmon preferably no skin on either side. 
 Olive oil, canola oil, avocado oil, or Duck Fat Spray 



    I tried this once. Absolutely delicious! I’m not the greatest lover of salmon, but combining with the crabmeat, and grilling it, makes it incredible. So good, I just bought it again today to make it for Mother’s Day.
