How to Make Crispy Baked Salmon Fingers with Minty Peas
You’ve probably fried salmon or baked whole pieces of the fish before in the oven. A fun and healthy way to enjoy the fish is to make crispy salmon fingers with a side dish of minty peas. It takes less than 20 minutes to prepare the meal and less than an hour to bake the fingers. Canadian salmon is often the best option because it doesn’t fall apart as much as other types of salmon. The fish should be cut into small fingers, similar to chicken, and breaded. Dip the chicken into an egg and milk mixture before breading. Bake the fingers for about 15 minutes.
While the salmon fingers are baking, you can begin working on the minty peas. Heat your peas in a skillet or pot until they are tender or bright green. After they are done, you can stir in two tablespoons of fresh mint and a small amount of butter. You can also add salt to the peas for more flavor. This is a simple meal that is healthy for lunch or even dinner if you add a side dish or two. If you want to keep the meal healthy, then use roasted potatoes or mushrooms as a side dish.
