It’s one of the coldest days in the Tampa Bay area and it’s also my husband’s birthday. All we want to do is stay warm, watch movies, and eat some comfort food. I have some bell peppers in the fridge as well as some left-over salmon. Therefore, for dinner, I decided to make stuffed peppers.
They are hearty, flavorful, and the perfect comfort food for his birthday celebration.
Let me share how I made them. Remember to tell me if you like stuffed peppers or if make them similar to mine.
1 cup of cooked rice (I made rice and vegetables)
Leftover salmon shredded
1 onion diced
3 cloves garlic, chopped
2 tomatoes seeded and finely diced
½ cup mozzarella cheese
½ cup cheddar cheese
2 tbsp of olive oil
Salt, pepper, pepper flakes
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Cut the tops off the peppers. Remove and discard the stems.
Take the tops, chop them, and set them aside. Place the peppers cut-side up into a baking dish.
Heat 1 tbsp of extra virgin oil in a skillet, add the onion, the chopped garlic, the peppers. Cook for 3 minutes, add some salt.
Add the tomatoes, cook for 1 minute. Season to taste with salt, pepper, and pepper flakes. Add the shredded salmon, the cooked rice, and half of both kinds of cheese.
Fill the peppers with the mixture and sprinkle with the remaining cheeses.
Pour about ¼ cup of water into the bottom of the baking dish.
Drizzle the peppers with the other tbsp of olive oil.
Cover the dish with aluminum foil and bake for 30 minutes. Uncover and bake for another 15 minutes.
Our weekend was perfect and I hope it’s the same for you. Stay warm!

Stuffed peppers are a great birthday meal idea. This one is quick to make, healthy and delicious too.
They were simply delicious, Lisa.
That rice alone looks delicious! I haven’t made stuffed peppers in ages and these look so tasty.
They were indeed tasty, Marysa
very cute idea! My mother stuffing everything with everything, I definitely need to send this over to her: she will cook it for sure
I am sure she will, Lyosha!
and you know, it’s funny but she already did. She was laughing and so happy. She had leftover salmon from the day before so she cooked it right away. She told me to thank you, it was juicy and fresh
Yum! I love stuffed peppers! I usually do green peppers with rice and beef, mixed with Worcestershire sauce. I’ll have to try your version next time!
I did not know have beef, and most of the times, I use whatever I find in my fridge for a quick meal.
Easy and nutritious , seems like a tasty meal for Valentines Day! Thank you!
You are welcome, Louraine!
Just the smell of stuffed peppers is delicious.
So true, I grow them too and can’t wait for them to come out.
I love stuffed peppers too and my husband loves them even more. This looks absolutely delicious and now I am hungry 😉
You are welcome to our table anytime.

This is an awesome idea and would never think of it. I would love to give it a try. Thank you for sharing!
You should, Fransic, and let me know how they come out.
This recipe looks incredibly delicious and the concept is very unique. The cheese at the top makes it so enticing and tempting. I totally loved it!

These are so good!!! I tried stuffed peppers before but with minced meat, so good! I can’t wait to make your recipe.
I never tried to make stuffed peppers, but I love peppers. I have to try this next week!
I will try to make this dish on weekends, thanks for sharing the recipe.
I’ve never tried stuffed peppers with salmon. I love this take on them!
When I was a child, there were very few foods I detested – and sauteed peppers – including stuffed peppers were some of those. However, as I grew old and wise, I love peppers – and your stuffing looks especially delicious 🙂 Love everything with melt cheese 😉
This looks like a great recipe to make!
it has been a while since we made stuffed peppers at home.. while i will be making a vegetarian version, your post has tempted me to add it to my menu soon
I have never tried stuffed peppers before – mainly because my kids eat them like apples so they are always finished before I can do anything with them. BUT this looks so yummy!
I LOOOOVE stuffed peppers. But my husband won’t eat them (which is weird because he isn’t picky, but he says he just doesn’t like them). So I’m going to make them again for just ME! 🙂
Just enjoy them and make something that he likes for him, Rachel.
Ooh, I love stuffed peppers! I am totally going to save this for MY birthday! These look SO tasty!
They are delicious and simple to make.
Great post! Who doesn’t like birthday dinners? And stuffed peppers look ideal for a perfect birthday dinner!
