"Dizzy Pig" Crab and Shrimp Stuffed Salmon

I wanted to try three different recipes from friends, so I combined them into one cook.
Talented cooking, smoking friend CarterQ at pelletsmoking.com , posted his recipe for crab stuffed salmon on the smoker.
I love crab and just had to give it a try. (Thanks again Carter!)

This isn't his exact stuffing recipe but close. I used crab meat, minced scallions, lemon pepper, minced garlic and salt..



made cuts into the salmon filets for the stuffing...



I rubbed the filets with olive oil and seasoned with salt before stuffing....



I used cubed raw shrimp for two of the filets and seasoned the stuffing the same as the crab meat.

Then I tried talented smoking friend NRA4Life's recipe of sprinkling the salmon with adobo seasoning and Dizzy Pig's Cowlick Steak Rub.....
Here is a link to the Dizzy Pig Rubs



I let the stuffed salmon smoke in the Memphis Pro at 275F .....



Then I tried talented smoking friend Militant Squatter's recipe of drizzling shrimp with olive oil, adding minced garlic...the dusting with Dizzy Pig's Swamp Venom dry rub....



I cranked up the heat on the Pro when I added the shrimp...





The crab stuffed salmon hot out of the smoker....



The Dizzy Pig Cowlick shrimp stuffed salmon...



The Dizzy Pig Swamp Venom shrimp......



CarterQ's crab stuffed salmon....





NRA4Life's Dizzy Pig Cowlick shrimp stuffed salmon...





and a couple of MilitantSquatter's Dizzy Pig Swamp Venom smoked shrimp...



They were all great!
I loved Carter's crab stuffing better than my shrimp stuffing. I think it's because I love crab meat.... it rates right up there with bacon, chocolate and garlic as one of my favorite food groups. lol

I also loved NRA4Life's Dizzy Pig Cowlick and adobo on the salmon. Next time I will use Carter's crab stuffing with the Cowlick Rub.

Militant Squatter's Dizzy Pig Swamp Venom shrimp recipe was perfect... I loved it. :)

I don't know if you three will see this but thanks again for your recipes and ideas!
I'll definately make this again. :)

They look great. I am jealous as always.
Wish you could come teach me how to cook. ;)
Love all the pictures, too!

LindaG said...

P.S. I do understand there are some people who need it.
Several of the blogs I follow have real spam problems. :(

It's just hard sometimes, yeah.

And thank you, Cowgirl. I hope you all have a nice week, too! :)

Those stuffed salmon look phenomenal! 'Course the shrimp don't look to shabby either. Thanks for sharing and a special thanks to those who shared with you.

I've never considered stuffing salmon - what a great idea. Everything looks and sounds delicious

Rich said...

cowgirl,

Thanks for posting, as usual.

I wanted to ask, how do you like those flexible wire skewers? Are they a pain to clean? I've seen some in the BBQ department of our supermarket and was tempted to buy. What are the advantages over the standard straight skewers?

cowgirl said...

Thank you Bill! I'm still hungry for crab, I might have to make this again soon. :)

cowgirl said...

Thank you Larry! I wouldn't have thought of it either. Carter's stuffed salmon looked soooo good, I had to try it. Now I'm hooked.. :)

cowgirl said...

Thank you Rich! :)
I love the Firewire. I either put them in the dishwasher to clean or use a soapy sponge or dish cloth to wash them. They are pretty much non-stick and easy to clean.
I like the way I can lay them around food that is already on the grill. They are so handy when I have a grill loaded with food.

I have a few of those really long flat metal skewers that I like too, but they barely fit in my drum and they seem to take up more room than these wires.

Not sure if I've been a help to you Rich.... but I like them. :)

Thanks again...
Hope you are having a great week!

Lana Thank you! I appreciate you stopping by too. :)

I just did a side of salmon yesterday using Dizzy Pig's Raging River which just ROCKS with salmon. I think it's the dill and sugar that agree so well with the fish.

Great dishes here, Jeannie, they all look fantastic. I have a few frozen salmon filets that my mother in law gave me, I'll have to try at least one of these out.

cowgirl said...

Chris your salmon sounds soooo good! Thanks for the tip on the Raging River, I will definately try it.
You have a very nice mother in law! :)
Looking forward to seeing your cooks.
Thanks Chris! :)

Hello Cowgirl.

Cookin Willie here. I made this dish of yours it was so good. My family loves Salmon anyway and to put the crab meat in it was great. We did it for a Friday Lent meal. I grilled the salmom on the gas grill with a salt block. I picked up this salt block slab about inch and half thick. Cooked the salmon on that to add flavor to it. It was good.

cowgirl said...

Willie so glad to hear it turned out well for you. :)
I have seen the salt blocks but have not tried them yet.. I need to do that.
Hope you are having a great week.
Thanks!!
