Salmon and Cream Cheese Wontons Recipe for a quick and easy meal that is light but satisfying.



For the Wontons:

  • 12 oz. wonton wrappers (should be in one package)
  • 24 oz. salmon (I used Cedar Bay Cedar Planked Atlantic Salmon Sugar & Spice)
  • 1/2 cup cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup green onion
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 egg
  • avocado oil (for frying)

For the Sauce:

  • Juice and zest of 1 lemon
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup mayo
  • salt and pepper (to taste)

For Serving:

  • chives for topping
  • 1 cup cabbage (chopped)
  • 1 red bell pepper (chopped)


For the wontons:

  1. Cook salmon in the oven according to package directions.
  2. In a bowl, add cream cheese, green onion, juice of lemon, garlic powder and smoked paprika. Mix well.
  3. Once cooked, add salmon to to the bowl and mix together. Be careful not to over mix, there should still be good sized chunks of salmon in the mix.
  4. Lay out wonton wrappers and put a spoonful of salmon mixture in the middle of each one, leaving a small gap around the edges.
  5. Whisk egg in a bowl and brush on edges of wonton wrappers. Top with another wonton wrapper and then pinch corners inwards to seal the edges together. Repeat with all the remaining wontons.
  6. In a pan over medium high heat, add avocado oil. Drop in wontons and fry on both sides until golden brown.
  7. Take them out of the pan and immediately salt them to taste.

For the sauce:

  1. In a bowl, mix together all ingredients.

For serving:

  1. Serve wontons over a bed of cabbage and bell pepper with dipping sauce on the side.
