Crab-Stuffed Salmon Pinwheels With a Garlic Dill Cream Sauce

Oct 17, 2010 by

This recipe is a lot easier than it sounds. Seriously. I put it together in less than 10 minutes. You will need a large fillet of salmon though for this and if it’s too thick, you’ll need to skim some off the top (save and freeze for a quick lunch!).

I also like to use pureed pine nuts as a binder with seafood because they’re moist and offer a neutral, slightly nutty flavor. Simply put them in your food processor to make a “paste.”

You also want to make sure you use a proper sized baking dish and that these pinwheels are “wedged” inside. If, like me, you were using your square baking dish for something else and need to put it in a larger dish, roll up some foil and push it up against the salmon. This prevents them from unrolling and keeps the cream sauce on top.

      Hi there, just curious as to whether you made this salmon dish or not?


    YES. This will be my first foray into Crabs. (There's a joke in there, I know it.) I'll let you know how it goes.

    Wow. If it weren't for the crab, I'd say it looked delicious! Thank you for taking the time to take pictures and put up these posts.

    Made this dish last night with a lemon risotto – this salmon recipe was SO EASY and incredibly delicious. My dad, who doesn’t eat salmon, had a second helping. I can’t get over how easy it was to make and how gourmet it looked and tasted! thanks!!

    So I made these awhile back for a dinner party and was really nervous because it was my first time making them but they were AMAZING! I am making them again right now for another dinner party so I will update on this experience after we enjoy them, I did make the Pine nut puree a little diff: I used 1 cup pine nuts, olive oil, Pickled Artichoke Hearts (stems removed)Parmesan Cheese (grated) and threw them all in food processor and that’s it Very easy!
