Salmon is a fish that contains omega-3 fatty acids. These fatty acids can reduce swelling in the blood vessels and reduce your chances of heart disease. Studies have shown that omega-3 fatty acids may boost immunity, lower blood pressure, and decrease triglycerides. Stuffed salmon pinwheels are a tasty way to incorporate salmon into your diet. Try stuffing them with a spinach filling or even a crabmeat filling for a delicious dinner that your family can enjoy.

Preparing the Pinwheel

Remove skin from a large salmon fillet.

Spread a thin layer of filling over the entire fillet. See filling options for crabmeat and spinach stuffing.

Roll up the fillet as tightly as you can.

Cut off 1 1/2 slices of salmon using a sharp chef's knife.

Use tongs to remove pinwheels and place in a baking dish, being sure that they are overlapping.

Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 to 25 minutes.

Crabmeat Stuffing

Pour two cans of crabmeat into a bowl.

Add 1 tbsp. scallions, 1 tsp. old bay seasoning and 1 tbsp. cream cheese.

Mix well.

Spinach Filling

Defrost a 16 oz. box of frozen spinach. Squeeze out excess water.

Place spinach in a bowl.

Add 1/2 cup feta cheese and 1 tsp. of oregano.

Mix until all ingredients are well-combined.
