Canned goods are your friend, especially when combined with other fresh and delicious ingredients! Asian Salmon Sliders with Sriracha Mayonnaise are a quick and easy weeknight meal that comes mostly from the pantry. Make the sliders a day or so in advance if you’d like and store them in the fridge till you’re ready to cook them.
Canned Salmon is inexpensive and packed with Omega 3 Fatty Acids. If you have read much of this blog you know we eat a lot of Salmon around here, whether it’s wild, farm-raised or canned. It’s good for my middle aged skin!
These Asian Salmon Sriracha Sliders need to be refrigerated for at least 30 minutes before cooking, otherwise you run the risk of them falling apart in the pan.
(The fallen apart version is still very tasty, just not so photogenic for my Photographer/TechGuy/Husband. He likes his food PRETTY!
The recipe for Salmon Sliders with Sriracha Mayonnaise is great with either chopped spinach or arugula. If your family hates both you can leave them out, but I urge you to at least give it a whirl. The greens pretty much disappear in these burgers and no one will be the wiser!
I like to serve Salmon Sliders on miniature buns with lettuce, red onion, cucumber and a dollop of Sriracha Mayonnaise. (Just combine two parts mayo to one part Sriracha Sauce.) Asian Salmon Sliders with Sriracha Mayonnaise are also good with a squirt of Sweet Chili Sauce!
Most of my recipes make HUGE portions thanks to my rapidly growing boys but this one only made about eight sliders. Double the recipe if you’d like!
