Salmon bites is an easy 5-ingredient, 10-minute recipe, featuring cubed salmon marinated in a simple honey sesame soy sauce and pan-seared to crispy perfection! Since marinating is optional, you can whip this up at a moment’s notice, and you’ll want to put the marinade on everything.
Salmon is one of my favorite proteins to cook. It’s loaded with nutrition, including good-for-you omega 3s and Vitamin D, and it’s easily accessible at any grocery store.
It’s not super expensive, but it’s not super cheap either. So I love cubing the salmon into bite-size pieces to make salmon bites. Somehow, cooking smaller pieces seems to make it go further. Maybe it’s because each little salmon nugget is so satisfying, wrapped in tons of flavor from the sauce and seared to crispy perfection. It also means you can buy any kind that’s cheap, because you don’t need huge beautiful thick fillets for this, which are usually more expensive.
The marinade is the same that I use for searing ahi tuna – a simple mixture of soy sauce, toasted sesame oil, and honey. These salmon bites are perfect served in a salmon bowl, with cooked rice and some sautéed veggies.
