Asparagus and Cambozola Cheese Stuffing
  • This savory and creamy stuffing is very versatile. It's great stuffed in a salmon or char fillet, plank smoked; rolled in halibut fillets, baked or in a casserole with shrimp or scallops.

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 cup shallots, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons garlic, minced
  • 1 pound asparagus, 2 inch tips
  • 1 1/2 cups grape tomatoes, Reserve 1/2 cup, cut in half
  • 1 tablespoon fresh oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 3/4 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1/4 pound cambozola cheese, diced into very small chunks.


  • In a saute pan, heat 2 tablespoons olive oil, saute shallots, garlic and asparagus about three minutes.
  • Transfer mixture to food processor, add 1 cup tomatoes, oregano, red pepper flakes, and kosher salt. Pulse until just combined. Put mixture in a bowl, add reserved tomatoes, cheese and panko crumbs. Gently mix well.
  • This makes enough stuffing for about 3 to 4 pounds of fish or 6 to 8 people.
  • Enjoy!
