It’s Summer time and for me that means lots of seafood. There’s just something about the heat that makes me want lighter and fresh foods so a lot of times that means seafood!
I’m always trying to find new ways of eating familiar standbys so today I’m making salmon wontons! A fun mixture of a cream cheese wonton with salmon for a fun and tasty mouthful!
These are light enough to not weigh you down but still substantial and they’re great texturally as well with the creaminess of the salmon/cream cheese on the inside and then the crunchy exterior. Served with the tangy dipping sauce it’s a real treat for the taste buds.
I’m using Cedar Bay Grilling Company’s sugar and spice Cedar Planked Salmon because it’s easy to toss in the oven and have a great piece of fish ready since it’s pre-seasoned and already on a plank. You can learn more about Cedar Bay Grilling Company by checking them out on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram or you can find them at Kroger, Publix, Hannaford, Safeway, Albertsons, Fred Meyer, Ralph’s, Giant, Giant Eagle, Stop n Shop and Roche Bros.
I think these make a great meal on their own, especially if you serve them with some cabbage and bell pepper with the sauce. If you’re looking to bulk up the meal, I think grilled asparagus or even some rice would go great with them. Serve with a nice glass of white wine and you’ve got yourself the perfect summer dinner.
