This recipe is also delicious served cold with a lemon-caper mayonnaise. The stuffing can be prepared up to a day ahead.


  • 2 pounds fillet of salmon
    Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
    1 cup fresh breadcrumbs
    1 cup slivered almonds
    1 cup parsley sprigs
    1 teaspoon dry tarragon
    3 tablespoons grated lemon zest
    1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
    4 ounces soft unsalted butter
    Ground cayenne pepper to taste
    2 tablespoons lemon juice
    2 tablespoons melted butter
    1 cup dry white wine


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
    Skin the salmon fillet. Remove all bones. Rinse fillet under cold water, and pat dry.
    Cut the fillet in half across. Season with salt and pepper.
    To make the stuffing:
    Combine the fresh breadcrumbs, almonds and parsley in a food processor.
    Process to a coarse texture until well mixed. Blend in the tarragon, grated lemon zest, lemon juice, and butter. Season to taste with salt, pepper, and cayenne pepper.
    Spoon the stuffing over the surface of one fillet. Top with the other salmon fillet, pressing the fillet to adhere to the stuffing. Tie the stuffed fillets with butcher twine to keep the shape
    of the fish.
    Place the fish on a baking sheet. Measure the thickness of the stuffed salmon at the thickest part. Pour lemon juice, melted butter and wine over surface of fish.
    Bake about 15 minutes per inch of thickness, until the flesh is barely opaque throughout.

    To serve:
    Cut the fish crosswise into 1 to 11/2 -inch-thick slices.
    Arrange in center of warm plates. Spoon the cooking liquid over each portion.
    Garnish with steamed asparagus or other green vegetables. Serve hot.
