Ingredients

  • 4 Skinless Salmon Fillets
  • Sea salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 Tbsp Lemon Juice
  • 2 Tbsp Olive Oil or butter
  • Cup Cream Cheese Fat-free or light
  • ¼ Cup Chopped sun-dried tomatoes
  • ¼ Cup Basil Leaves chopped
  • 2 Tbsp Finely grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 Tsp Garlic Powder
  • a few thin slices of lemon

Instructions

  • First start preparing the salmon fillets, by seasoning them with salt and pepper on both sides.
  • Next, cut them on halfway through the sides to create a pocket for the filling. Be careful not to cut all the way through.
  • In a mixing bowl, add cream cheese, sun-dried tomatoes, basil, parmesan, and garlic powder.
  • Gently stuff the salmon with the cheese mixture.
  • Add olive oil (melt butter if using butter) in a non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add salmon and cook for about 4-5 minutes on each side, or until golden brown and flaky.
  • Drizzle with lemon juice and add more lemon slices to the pan if desired. Serve hot and enjoy!
