What you’ll need

  • 1/4 lb wild salmon filet
  • 1 cup cooked brown rice
  • 1 cup frozen peas, defrosted
  • ¼ cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • ½ teaspoons dried dill

How to make it:

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350° F. Place the salmon skin side down, in a baking dish. Bake until opaque throughout, about 15 minutes. Let cool. Remove the skin and discard. Using a fork, flake the salmon into small pieces, discarding any pin bones. Transfer the salmon to a bowl. Add the rice, peas, cheese, eggs, dill, and stir until combined.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Form about 1/3 cup of the salmon mixture into a 1 ½ inch ball and place it on the prepared backing sheet. Repeat with the remaining salmon mixture to from 8-10 balls. Loosely cover the balls with aluminum foil and bake until the balls are slightly firm but still gooey, 18 -20 minutes. Let cool slightly and serve warm. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days, or freeze for up to 1 month. Reheat before serving.
