Spicy salmon bites
No time? No worries! You can make these spicy salmon bites - that just happen to be keto and paleo-friendly - in only 15 minutes. It’s a perfect lunch idea for lazy days.
- 500 g fresh or frozen salmon (4 medium skinless fillets), thawed (if frozen) and chopped into bite-size pieces
- 2 tbsp chipotle paste
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tbsp lemon juice
- Sea salt
- Freshly ground black pepper
- Olive oil for frying
- Green onions for garnishing (optional), chopped
Combine the chipotle paste, olive oil, and lemon juice in a small mixing bowl and set aside.
Cut the salmon into cubes (I prefer them to be a little bit bigger than bite-size) and season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Set aside.
Heat a non-stick skillet over a medium-high heat and add some olive oil.
Pour the chipotle mixture over the salmon cubes and mix everything so all the salmon is covered in the marinade.
When the skillet is smoking hot, add the salmon cubes and cook on each side for 4 minutes or until golden brown.
Serve warm topped with some chopped green onions and a side dish of your choice.
