I am SO excited about this recipe. A little over 4 years ago I stopped eating meat but obviously didn’t give up my beloved wild fish. I love oysters, salmon, calamari, squid, chilean sea bass, shrimp, well you get the point. Not eating meat anymore was a complete personal choice and I don’t have a political reason for it, I just do not like the taste of meat anymore. I never enjoyed grilled chicken or any of the good-for-you meats. I was more of a chicken finger, bacon cheese burger, rib lovin’ kind of girl (shocker, I know).
Not eating meat has allowed me to experiment more in my kitchen and think outside the typical meal ideas. These Salmon Meatballs are a prime example.
My only complaint about eating fish is that it is very expensive since I will only eat wild fish (no farm raised). These Salmon Meatballs are made with wild salmon that came in a can (don’t run away I promise it’s not gross!) that I purchased from Trader Joe’s. They also are a good item to keep in your pantry when your in a bind since it comes in a can and doesn’t go bad too quickly.

I like to pair these with chick pea pasta, on top of farro or stuff in a pita with endless veggies and hummus. I don’t pair with just arugula like in the photos (I got lazy this morning – shhh!). But you can really add these Salmon Meatballs to anything you want!
You only need 5 ingredients to make them too, can it get any easier?!
- 2 6oz cans of wild salmon
- 1/2 cup of panko bread crumbs
- 3 gloves of garlic minced
- 1/4 cup of chopped onion
- 1 egg
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees
- Line a cookie tray with parchment paper
- Mix all ingredients in a bowl then form into small balls (about 1 or 2 tablespoons)
- Should make about 10-12 meatballs (about 4 per serving)
- Bake in oven for 15 minutes
