Keto Salmon Nuggets
Did you grow up eating frozen fish sticks as a kid? I did and loved them dunked in tartar sauce. But as I got older I started enjoying real fish varieties without all the added breading garbage, but I missed that crispy fish nugget I grew up loving. If you too crave a crispy fish, you can enjoy them again without all the carb breading. This keto fish nugget version will please everyone in the family, even the picky kids.
Oven frying or baking is the method used in this recipe as it makes for less dazzle as opposed to frying and having to babysit the pieces in the skillet on the stove. Lucky for you though, you can oven fry or actually fry these salmon nuggets if you prefer. Both methods are listed in the directions.
- 1.25 pound salmon filets (or 500 grams)
- 1 egg beaten
- ¼ cup coconut cream or heavy cream
- ½ cup almond meal
- ½ cup grated parmesan cheese or ⅓ cup nutritional yeast
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- ½ teaspoon garlic powder
- ½ teaspoon paprika
- ½ teaspoon salt
