Can I freeze the extra?
I haven’t tried freezing these, but if you do let us know how it goes.
So good! I tried these for my daughters 2nd birthday instead of hot dogs and all her friends loved them to. Thank you!
This is amazing! Bravo to you for serving salmon at a 2nd birthday party!
Hi michele, just want to let you know when making this, i was so skeptical my picky 18months baby won’t even have a second bite. O my, was i wrong, she loved it! It amazed me how she picked and eat eat eat. Thank you for all of your recipes, now i want to make them all 😉
I love this!! So happy your little one liked this recipe. Let me know which recipe you are going to try next.
Hi, can these be kept in the fridge and reheated ?
Yes. I would recommend reheating in a skillet so they remain crispy.
Can you recommend a sauce or dip to go with these?
My toddler would eat these salmon bites (and literally anything else) with ranch! haha! But you could serve these with any dip your little one prefers. If older than a year, a nice Miso Honey dip would be yummy.
I’ve been making this for my daughter since she was about 7 months old and she absolutely loves it. One of the times her Dad tried it and now he absolutely loves this too. I make this dish at least once every two weeks for the both of them. It’s seriously so easy and probably my baby’s favorite meal.
So glad your entire family loves this recipe and it’s on your dinner rotation. Thanks for sharing your review:)
Can these be made at a lower temperature or on a skillet? My fire alarm goes off anytime I use a temperature higher then 420 😆
Yes, you can cook them at 400 for an extra 5 minutes or in a skillet with a little olive oil. We had one of those fire alarms for a while that went off anytime we made toast 😂
