Cheese and Herb Stuffed Salmon
* 1 kg salmon fillet
* Black and lemon pepper
* Lemon juice
* Unripened cheese
* Dill, chives and thyme
Season the fish fillet with salt and black and lemon peppers to taste.
Using a sharp knife, cut a less than one centimeter deep opening in
the middle of the fillet from head to tail. Place the knife in the opening
and cut a pocket to both sides of the opening. Unfold the pockets and
spread the cheese in. Sprinkle finely chopped dill, chives and thyme
on the cheese. Turn the upper side of each pocket on the cheese and
herbs. Secure the opening with cocktail sticks some 5 cm apart. Sprinkle
with lemon juice.
Bake in 390°F / 200°C for about 20-25 minutes. When the fish
is done, remove the sticks.
Serve with boiled potatoes and green salad.
