To Make the Salmon as Shown in the Image:

The image above and below shows this baked stuffed salmon recipe done just a bit fancier. It is a great recipe for entertaining.

Instead of cooking the salmon whole, cut the fish into individually sized fillets. Slice the fillet down the center almost to the bottom. Spread it out and stuff the cavity that you have created with the wonderful filling.

Place the fillets on parchment paper or aluminum foil on a baking sheet. Wrap the entire baking sheet with more foil. Bake as it says above.
