I have been told that these Salmon Sliders are really just mini sandwiches and not actual sliders, but I’m ok with keeping their name as is.  Note from the cook: do not skip the avocado salsa.  (That’s the best part!)  We used these keto buns (see recipe) for testing purposes, but the whole wheat slider buns would also be fantastic!

Salmon Sliders

Author: Heidi Boortz
Servings : 7

Ingredients

Salmon

  • 1 lb salmon fillet wild caught preferred
  • 1 cup 100% whole wheat panko
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup cilantro chopped
  • 1 Tbsp Dijon mustard no sugar listed in ingredients
  • 1/4 cup plain yogurt
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 3 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil

Avocado Salsa

  • 1 avocado large, diced
  • 1 tomato diced
  • 1/3 cup red onion diced
  • 1/4 cup cilantro chopped
  • 1 Tbsp lime juice
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1 Tbsp avocado oil

Low Carb Keto Slider Buns

  • 1 cup blanched almond flour
  • 4 egg
  • 4 Tbsp coconut oil liquified
  • 1 tsp baking powder see notes
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Instructions

Salmon Sliders

  • Skin salmon. Chop into small bits. Stir salmon pieces, panko, egg, yogurt, cilantro, mustard, lemon juice, salt, and pepper in a medium bowl.
  • Heat oil in a large skillet. Form salmon mixture into 2 inch balls. Place several balls in hot skillet, and flatten with the back of a spatula. Let cook 2-3 minutes per side or until golden. Repeat until all salmon has been used (we made 14 patties).
  • Place cooked salmon patties on buns and top with salsa.

Avocado Salsa

  • Combine all ingredients in a small mixing bowl.

Slider Buns

  • Preheat oven to 425. Combine all ingredients in a blender. Blend and pour into greased cupcake molds (silicone work great!). Bake at 425 for 15-20 minutes or until set. (Tops will appear wet, so don't use the appearance as your guide. Buns are done when a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.)

Notes

Note: we increased the baking powder in the buns to 1 teaspoon to give them a little more height.
NOTE:  To make this meal fully keto (and paleo), use almond meal or almond flour in place of the panko.
