This recipe is great for littles who aren’t enjoying salmon yet. My eldest thought they were chicken. (Although she loves pan-seared salmon as well.) Hubs and I topped them on leafy green salads.
This recipe has only three ingredients, and it’s very flexible. You can change the ingredients to your liking. I tried with all the different options I listed in the recipe, and my favorite is mayonnaise with corn flakes crumbs.
I get skinless salmon fillet from Costco’s frozen section. And for the corn flakes crumbs, you can get it already crumbled from the market. I love it because, unlike panko bread crumbs, you don’t have to spray oil or pan-toast to get the golden color. I keep them stocked up in the pantry.
3 Ingredients Salmon Nuggets
This recipe is only 3 ingredients and very flexible
- 1 lb salmon fillet cubed
- 1/3 cup ranch dressing/ mayonnaise/or full-fat yogurt
- 1 cup corn flakes crumbs/bread crumbs/or panko
Position rack in the middle and preheat oven to 400F.
Place cubed salmon fillet in a bowl. Pour ranch dressing/mayonnaise/or full-fat yogurt in the bowl and mix until salmon cubes are well coated.
Spread corn flakes crumbs/bread crumbs/or panko on a plate. Coat salmon cubes with crumbs by rolling them on the crumbs one by one.
Line a parchment paper on a baking sheet. Place salmon cubes on the sheet without touching each other.
Bake for about 13 minutes until the salmon is cooked through.
You can squeeze some lemon juice on top of salmon cubes before coating them with ranch/mayo/yogurt if you don’t like the smell of fish.
