Once mixed, chill your crab mixture in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes.Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C/Gas Mark 4) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.


Rinse and then use a paper towel to pat the 24 oz salmon filets dry. Place the salmon filets onto your prepared baking sheet.With a sharp knife, carefully cut down the center of each filet making an opening into the center (careful not to cut all the way through, just about halfway).Using a small spoon, spoon the mixture into the salmon filets, then add the rest on top in the center of the filets. Sprinkle additional paprika on if desired.Place in the preheated oven at 350°F (175°C/Gas Mark 4) for 15 to 18 minutes. To get a nice finish on the filets, you can broil them for a minute or two when they are almost done.Remove from the oven and garnish with a small amount of freshly grated Parmesan cheese and parsley, if desired. Serve immediately.

Finish off your salmon with some freshly grated Parmesan and that is sure to convince your guests you are a true chef. (Angela at Bake It With Love)
