I am an official ambassador for Chicken of the Sea. Chicken of the Sea provided me with Pink Up Lunch kit for the purpose of this post for Baked Rangoon, as well as compensation for my time. As always, all opinions expressed are 100% mine.
Enjoy a healthy, quick and easy appetizer of baked salmon rangoon. Make them spicy with Sriracha or enjoy the delicious flavors of lemon pepper.
Pin Salmon Rangoon here.
My daughter is a crab rangoon connoisseur. She eats them anytime we go to an Asian restaurant. Since they are usually deep-fried, I rarely will have one. I’ve been wanting to make a baked, healthier version at home. When Chicken of the Sea sent me samples of their salmon, I thought it was the perfect opportunity to put my own spin on crab rangoons. I decided to make salmon rangoons instead. Salmon is filled with omega-3 fatty acids, that may reduce the risk of coronary disease. It is high in protein and low in saturated fat.
They sent me so many wonderful flavors that I had a hard time deciding which to use. In the end I decided to make spicy salmon rangoon and lemon pepper salmon rangoon. I loved the spicy kick the sriracha salmon gave to the rangoons, but I also loved the subtle, fresh flavors of lemon and pepper. Both were a huge success and are definitely going on my Christmas party menu. Yes, you read that correctly; I am already planning a Christmas party.
I am excited to try some more recipes with Chicken of the Sea salmon. They have lots of recipes on their website. I was thinking of trying Shanghai Wrap or a Sriracha Salmon and Pineapple Quesadillas for lunch. Which should I try first?
I love that I can keep pink salmon in my pantry, too. That means we can enjoy a healthy meal with salmon any time. I don’t have to worry about whether the grocery store has it. We always have homemade smoked salmon in the freezer, and my daughter always does a “happy dance” when we have salmon for dinner. I’ve saved some Baked Salmon Rangoons for her to have as a snack when she comes home from school today.
I plan on making a big batch and freeze them. They are going to be a big hit at our Christmas party. The ones I have left won’t make it through the day. It will take all of my willpower not to eat them for lunch. If you want to serve them with a dip, try some duck sauce. I did not think they needed a dip. They were so flavorful on their own.
