Crab and Shrimp Stuffed Trout Fillets

Crab and Shrimp Stuffed Trout Fillets by Alison's AllspiceSeafood is a special treat for me.  I tend to reserve it for special occasions, like birthdays and holidays.  These crab and shrimp stuffed trout fillets are no exception!  My family and I enjoyed them for our Thanksgiving dinner, and I plan to have them again for our Christmas dinner!  

Crab and Shrimp Stuffed Trout Fillets by Alison's Allspice Crab and Shrimp Stuffed Trout Fillets by Alison's Allspice Crab and Shrimp Stuffed Trout Fillets by Alison's Allspice Crab and Shrimp Stuffed Trout Fillets by Alison's AllspiceTrout are more mild in flavor than salmon, and have a delicate sweetness that pairs perfectly with rich, salty seafood flavors.  I chose shrimp and crab because they were easy to find and simple to use.  I usually buy shrimp from the seafood counter to get the best quality.  For this recipe, I opted for small salad shrimp because I was going to mince them up into tiny bits anyway.  There fore, I soaked the shrimp in brine to be certain they had the best flavor possible!

Variations to the Crab and Shrimp Stuffed Trout Fillets recipe:

  1. Use whatever seafood you like.  All shrimp or all crab would work.  Scallops would also be a lovely addition.
  2. Try cream cheese in place of the mayo if you prefer for an even creamier result.
  3. Don’t skip the lemon!  Finishing with the lemon adds brightness that would otherwise be lost.

  3. I love your recipe as I love all the seafood/fish you’ve used, especially shrimp. I’ve found the tiny shrimp are not very flavorful so it’s good that you brined them. Thanks for coming to the party and sharing with Fiesta Friday!
