Salmon Stuffed with Lime, Cilantro, Anaheim Pepper Recipe - Low Carb & Healthy

Low carb recipe for Salmon Stuffed with Lime, Cilantro, Anaheim Pepper which belongs to the Fish and Seafood recipe category.

Ingredients Needed

  1. 1 whole salmon, cleaned and gutted, about 6 pounds (2.7 kg)
  2. 1 lime, sliced paper-thin
  3. 1 bunch cilantro, chopped
  4. 1 Anaheim chili pepper, cut in matchstick strips
  5. 3 scallions, sliced thin lengthwise
  6. 2 tablespoons (30 g) olive oil

Cooking Instructions

This is simple.

Preheat your oven to 350F (180C, or gas mark 4).

Lay the salmon in a great big roasting pan you've sprayed with nonstick cooking spray.

Now stuff everything else except the oil into the salmon, distributing everything evenly along the length of the body cavity.

I like to sew the salmon up, using a heavy needle and cooking twine.

Now rub it with olive oil on both sides and throw it in the oven for 30 to 40 minutes.

It's a good idea to stick a thermometer in the thick part of the flesh to see if it's done; it should read between 135F and 140F (about 60C).

Cut into slices, with some of the stuffing in each serving.
