This recipe is really easy and you can use canned salmon to make it. Combining the salmon with rice and other ingredients makes a hearty meal and you can serve these salmon stuffed bell peppers by themselves, since they contain all the makings of a complete meal. Give each person two stuffed bell peppers and they will definitely feel full afterwards.

Feel free to switch the cooked white rice for cooked instant mashed potatoes. The result will be similar but the texture will be different. If you have some leftover rice or leftover mashed potatoes to use up, do it. This salmon stuffed bell pepper recipe will work for either of those. Also, you can use whichever type of bell pepper you prefer. The yellow ones are the sweetest, followed by the orange ones. Then you have the red ones and, at the other end of the spectrum with a more savory, tart flavor, there are the green ones. Perhaps you want to try one of each.

Salmon stuffed bell pepper is a good idea if you are looking for healthy fish recipe ideas. Canned salmon is always nice to keep in the pantry, just in case you need to rustle up something fast. You can make all kinds of dishes with it, using rice, pasta, or potatoes as your base, or even making a stuffed bell pepper or stuffed zucchini recipe. Tomatoes, mushrooms, eggplant, and other vegetables can also be stuffed, so you might like to experiment a bit.

Parboiling the bell peppers before you add the salmon stuffing makes them tender and baking them gives them a wrinkled appearance which, as you can see from the picture, does add something special. The filling is hearty and flavorful and this is a healthy meal.

Hi, my name is Christine. I am happy you are visiting today. Food is very important to everyone, and in this family we love to eat all kinds of dishes from meat and chicken to international cuisine, crockpot creations and more. Seafood is something we also love, and I love the fact it is nutritious as well as very tasty.

Everyone knows 'the big three' which are cod, tuna and salmon, but sometimes it is fun to try different types of fish, such as perch, trout, monkfish, or even shellfish like mussels or clams. There are seafood recipes for every season and occasion, those served chilled for a refreshing burst of flavor, and those served hot in stew or soup form.

Choose from crispy fried fish, tender pan-fried or poached cuts, or what about a seafood medley boasting the most wonderful flavors of the sea, lake or river? Seafood can be served as part of a salad or savory dish, or it can be served as an appetizer or snack. Bacon-wrapped scallops, anyone? You will find a comprehensive collection of wonderful seafood recipes right here, for your inspiration and enjoyment.

Thanks for visiting,
