Wild Salmon Appetizer Bites Recipe
You can’t go wrong serving this crowd-pleaser to your guests. Not sure anyone would turn down wild salmon. I sure wouldn’t. Salmon, whether in a can or fresh from Alaska, is loaded with Omega-3s, which is very good for your all-over wellness. In this recipe, I’m using Wild Planet Wild Sockeye Salmon, and that is definitely on the good list. If you’re supposed to eat fish three times a week (according to the health officials), eating salmon is a perfect choice.
Serve these wild salmon appetizer bites on a tray with a festive rainbow salad and sesame seeds. I served them to my family as a meal, though, and that’s an option too.
I use only the best ingredients in everything I cook. I recently became a member of Thrive Market and ordered several spices to try out included ground ginger that I used in this recipe. Oh, I love the benefits of ginger.
Another affiliate program I’m a member of is Piquant Labs – it’s a spice subscription box service. You know, nowadays, everyone has a subscription service. You might want to check this one out if you cook with spices a lot or if you have a chef in the family. It would make an excellent gift for them. I used their Turmeric Gold Spice in my recipe.
