Salmon Nuggets and Egg Rolls with Honey Sriracha Sauce by Elijah, age 11
This is definitely a kid favorite. They love cooking it as well as eating it! I’m not gonna bore you with a ton of details and background behind the recipe (because those food blogs that do that are the worst).
So without any fanfare, here’s the recipe.
Egg Roll Wraps
Any whatever seasonings you deem necessary
Step 1: Remove the skin from your salmon. Pouring hot water from a kettle does the trick without the use of a knife. It makes the skin simply peel off.
Step 2: Cut the salmon in cubes.
Step 3: Season the salmon with your soul. “If you ain’t sneezing, it ain’t seasoned.”
Step 4: Fry in a skillet. Cook for 2-3 minutes, then flip.
Step 5: When they’re done, just take them out and sit them on a paper towel. Don’t try to eat one. You WILL burn your mouth!!!
Step 1: In a deep pan or a pot, add butter, garlic, and ginger at low heat. Cook until you can smell it. (AKA Cook until fragrant.)
Step 2: Pour in the coleslaw mix.
Step 3: Add soy sauce and hoisin sauce.
Me: Elijah, how much?
Elijah: I don’t know. Just a few shakes of the soy sauce and a nice pour of the hoisin sauce (AKA measure with your heart).
Step 4: Cook it. Let it cool so you don’t burn yourself. You can clean your air-fryer during this time if you haven’t already.
Now it’s time to ROLLLLL!
***The rest of my kids have been ghosts this entire time. But when it’s time to fill and roll the egg rolls, all of a sudden everyone is in the kitchen.***
Step 5: Put the egg roll wrap on a flat surface. Put the filing in the middle and wet the edges. Follow the folding directions on the package.
Step 6: Put them in the air fryer on 350 degrees for 10 mins. They’ll be hot!
Lastly, make your honey sriracha sauce for the salmon nuggets and egg rolls by mixing honey and sriracha. If you like it really spicy, use more sriracha. If you like it more sweet, just use more honey. Easy.
