Grilled Stuffed Salmon Recipe

"For years, my husband worked for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service-so I've prepared fish all kinds of different ways. This variation of stuffed salmon gets high marks from my family." —Cathie Beard, Philomath, Oregon
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. Grill: 40 min. YIELD:12 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 whole salmon (8 pounds)
  • 2 teaspoons salt, divided
  • 1-1/4 teaspoons pepper, divided
  • 2 cups unseasoned stuffing cubes
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • 1 cup sliced mushrooms
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup minced fresh parsley
  • 3/4 cup butter, melted, divided
  • 1/4 cup egg substitute
  • 4-1/2 teaspoons plus 1/4 cup lemon juice, divided
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil

Directions

  • 1. Remove head and tail from salmon if desired. Sprinkle the cavity with 1 teaspoon each salt and pepper.
  • 2. In a large bowl, combine the stuffing cubes, carrots, mushrooms, onion, parsley, 1/4 cup butter, egg substitute, 4-1/2 teaspoons lemon juice, garlic and remaining salt and pepper; stuff cavity. Secure with metal skewers. Drizzle salmon with oil. Moisten a paper towel with cooking oil; using long-handled tongs, lightly coat the grill rack.
  • 3. Prepare grill for indirect heat using a drip pan. Place salmon over drip pan and grill, covered, over indirect medium heat for 40-50 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork and a thermometer reads 165° for stuffing.
  • 4. In a small bowl, combine remaining butter and lemon juice. Serve with salmon. Yield: 12 servings.
