Instead of baking salmon that I had in the oven or on the grill, I wanted to do something a little different. I tend to get stuck in food ruts and eat the same thing over and over again.
These bites can be made in less than 30 minutes and they came out so crispy on the outside and tender in the middle! They make the perfect appetizer dipped in your favorite sauce, for a summer party or part of your dinner/lunch for the week! This recipe will leave you with plenty of leftovers so you can snack on them all week long.
You do need to cook the salmon beforehand, but the recipe is simple to follow. You can also add in any of your favorite seasonings so each time you make them you can change up the flavor. This time around I stuck with sea salt, pepper, parsley, mustard, ginger; keeping it pretty simple. You can always add in onion, garlic, chili powder, really just about anything goes! I also made these with a chia egg because I didn’t have any eggs on hand, but an egg will work too! I didn’t realize I was out of eggs until halfway through making these, so thank god for chia/flax eggs!
Once the salmon is finished baking in the oven and has had time to cool off you simply add all of the ingredients into a large bowl. Then, mix until everything has been fully incorporated, form into bite-sized balls and bake! While the salmon was cooking in the oven, I prepared the ingredients that were needed to save some time.
I think that dipping the salmon bites in a hot sauce is ideal, or in lettuce leaves with avocado, cucumbers, parsley, chopped onion or in mini pitas!
They will last up to 4 days in the fridge, but best when eaten the day of!
