My youngest has never been a fan of any kind of fish, but has started to eat a little since starting school lunches. Every few weeks they have salmon nuggets so I though I’d try and recreate a healthy homemade version. You could add in some finely chopped chives, especially if preparing as a family meal, but for a first try I decide to avoid in case they were rejected. On serving, I was faced with slightly sceptical faces from my boys but dinner was soon polished off.
This recipe makes enough to feed 3-4 kids but you’d probably need to double it up if you were making for a family of 4 or 5 with hungry adults included too.
You Will Need:
- 1 regular can of tinned salmon
- 60g panko breadcrumbs
- Juice of 1/2 lemon
- 1/2 tsp mustard
- 1 egg
- A little oil
How to make Salmon Bites:
- Remove the salmon from the can and break up with a fork.
- Add in the breadcrumbs, egg, mustard and lemon juice and mix well. The mixture should hold well together so add a little more breadcrumbs if it feels too moist.
- Form the salmon mixture into balls and flatten slightly to create a nugget shape.
- Heat a little oil in a frying pan over a medium heat and then cook the salmon bites on each side for a few minutes until golden brown.
