The Stuffed Salmon That Stuffed Me!

Jump to recipe

It may be a new year, but I still have the same taste buds. That’s for sure! Unsurprisingly, my love and longing for salmon have come back around. In the past few weeks, I have been eating mostly chicken or beef so it was only a matter of time before I had to make my favorite fish for dinner. In an attempt to challenge myself I began to search for stuffed salmon recipes. I wasn’t thrilled with my findings until I stumbled upon this seemingly amazing Caprese Stuffed Salmon with Balsamic Roasted Tomatoes. I’ve always been a fan of Caprese salad and I absolutely love roasted tomatoes so the opportunity to merge a couple of my favorite foods was irresistible.

As I began to cook and document my journey making this dish I was presented with another little hiccup. My camera’s battery was on the brink of death. Normally, this wouldn’t even be worth mentioning because I have a charger and a backup battery. Unfortunately, when I went to find my backups I realized I had managed to leave them at my parent’s house out of state. While making those delicious brownies at home I managed to forget I had plugged everything in the kitchen and never went back to retrieve them. Luckily for me, it’s 2019 and our camera phones are pretty fantastic. So for the first time in DCDishes history, my blog photos are all taken with my iPhone. I definitely miss my camera but my phone held it’s own.

This recipe was simply a joy to make. I was super hesitant during the slicing and stuffing process but it was easy as 1-2-3! I loved cooking the salmon at a low temperature a little more slowly and making the balsamic sugar sauce was a little more of a challenge but tasted absolutely delicious when it reduced and finally thickened up. The roasted tomatoes with their scrumptious juices complimented the mozzarella and salmon perfectly. This simple but vibrant dinner is one I will make again and again!
