Salmon Belly Spring Rolls

Recipe inspired by Chef Kristen of Garlic and Chives. You can either saute, deep fry or even bake the salmon belly. We prefer deep fry for the most crispy texture. Skin on or off is up to you, but leaving the skin on keeps the meat intact better. We even improvised and added a nori strip, entirely up to you.

Instructions

  • Marinade the salmon belly with oyster sauce and sesame oil for at 10- 20 min.

The sauce can be made 1-2 days in advance. The crunchy egg roll wraps can be rolled and frozen and fried straight from frozen.
