Slammin' Crab Stuffed Salmon

Sherri Williams


A hometown friend from Danville Va I asked me today for a simple seafood stuffing recipe for salmon. I happened to have fresh salmon and crab on hand. This is my creation for Ms. Pleshette Bowens.

I'm pleased to announce that WFC Food Champ held a contest and I won a spot to compete in World World Recipe Championships with this delish recipe! I'll also be competing in Resers America's Best Potato Salad Contest as well. I can't wait to see everyone in Vegas at the 2013 World Food Championships! Cooking with Love & Passion. sw :)
