Honey Mustard Glazed Salmon Balls

Ingredients
  • 1 lb wild caught salmon (raw)
  • 1 tablespoon garlic paste
  • 1/3 cup red onions
  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg white
  • 2 tablespoons almond flour
  • 1/2 chopped bell pepper
  • Sea salt & pepper to taste

Glaze:

  • 3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons coconut sugar
  • 1.5 teaspoon fresh ginger (or ginger paste)
  • 1 tablespoon chicken broth
Steps

1. Set oven to 410F.

2. Place on a nonstick baking sheet or on parchment paper. Sprinkle with a little sea salt & pepper. Bake in the oven for 12 to 15 minutes or until the salmon can be flaked with a fork. Once it has finished baking, all the salmon to cool to room temperature. To save time and money, you can use canned wild caught salmon.

3. In a bowl, add chunks of the baked salmon. Flake the salmon with a fork so that it is shredded in the bowl. It should have the consistency of canned salmon.

4. Toss in all of the ingredients, except for the glaze, and mix together using your hands. Be sure to mix thoroughly. If you find the mixture is too thin or watery, add tablespoons of almond flour until thickens.

5. Create golf ball-sized balls of the salmon mixture and place them on a baking sheet. The recipe should make about 8 balls.

6. Bake the salmon in the oven for about 7 minutes.

7. While the salmon is baking, in a separate bowl, mix together all of the ingredients for the mustard glaze.

8. Remove the salmon balls after 7 minutes and brush the salmon balls with the mustard glaze using a basting brush (if you have one). You can also try to carefully dip the salmon ball in the glaze but be careful not to break it. Once each salmon ball has been covered, place the balls back on the baking sheet and pour the remaining glaze over them.

9. Bake in the oven for another 7 to 8 minutes.
