Stuffed Salmon with Bulgar Salad & Shrimp

Today’s dish is all about the omegas’s! Salmon is known to be a hearty healthy fish that is super filling and easy to cook. I always have loved stuffed salmon when eating at a restaurant and decided to recreate that at home. What better than cheesy garlic spinach goodness as the filling? To complete this meal; I served it with a delicious and easy bulgar salad using Wild Garden foods wheat and tomato pilaf and some sauteed shrimp as the cherry on top! Now, this is one meal that looks like it took hours to make but promise it can be done in under 30 minutes. Bon Appetit!

Add butter or oil to a pan and cook the salmon on medium high heat for 6 minutes on each side until cooked through. Be careful flipping the salmon. You may need to use two utensils to do so.

Mix the shrimp ingredients together and then place in the same pan that the salmon was cooked in. This takes about 2-3 minutes to cook on each side.
