Baked stuffed salmon (さけのポタトサラダ包み焼き) is an easy recipe to make and it can be a one dish meal in itself since each portion comes with a generous serving of potato salad to serve as the requisite carb. If you use store bought potato salad, you can even skip making your own. Just scoop out about 1 cup of salad per portion and it should come out fine.
