This was an easy to make recipe - yet quite an elegant presentation. I used plain goat cheese; sliced off pieces and rolled them in dried dill weed (fresh would be good too, but I didn't have any on hand) before stuffing the salmon fillets. I made my own blend by combining 1 tbsp each of Dijon mustard and light mayonnaise - which was plently to spread on top of the fillets. Before baking, I put more dill on the mustard-mayo topping. A definite make again.

Very Good....and SO easy to make. I used a whole tail piece of salmon and not individual filets which worked out nicely (less individual stuffing, cutting etc). I cut a small slit through the entire length of the tail and almost to the back of the fish, creating a nice pocket. I stuffed the herbed goat cheese & packed it down. I then salt & peppered the the top of the fish & made a mixture of light mayo, dijon mustard, parmesan cheese & bread crumbs. Baked on a foiled lined baking sheet (sprayed) at 350 for approx 15+ minutes, then turned on the broiler and broiled just for a minute or 2 to get the top crust nice & brown. WOW! Delicious! And incredibly easy. Serve is with couscous and it might be the easiest & most delicious meal you'll make all week.

Good dish. A few changes I would suggest..1.)cut back on the mayo-dijon atleast by half. 2.)add back plain dijon mustard to make up for what you took away. 3.) thicker salmon works better, you can make a nice hole to stuff the goat chesse in about every inch or so. 4.) put some goat chesse on top as well, it well brown up just like the picture. Enjoy.
