Salmon and rice is one of my favorite comfort meals during the week. It’s a great way to pack in omega-3 fats and protein, and can be prepared in endless amounts of ways.

How to make maple sriracha salmon bites

  1. Start by cutting your skinless salmon into 1″ cubes and seasoning them with chili powder, smoked paprika, salt, pepper, garlic powder and olive oil
  2. Next, sear them on a hot pan for about 3 minutes per side until nice and browned
  3. While they’re cooking, prepare your sauce by mixing together the maple syrup, sriracha, garlic and salt
  4. Drain out some of the excess oil from the pan and pour the sauce into the pan. Let the salmon simmer for a couple of minutes
  5. Garnish with chopped parsley and serve with your favorite veggies and side of rice

The sweet salmon bites come out flakey and delicious, and come together in 30 minutes or less. You guys are going to love this recipe!
