Salmon Bites

This recipe was originally taken from Christine’s Pantry. She called them Salmon Balls but that just plain sounds dirty so I renamed them Salmon Bites and served them with a wonderful homemade dill yogurt dipping sauce. My wife and I scarfed all of them down in one sitting with just a tiny bit of guilt.

    I’m glad you all enjoyed. You said, “salmon balls sound dirty”. LOL

    I used leftover oven-poached salmon and had to adapt a little; added a couple tablespoons mayo until it would form a ball.

    They taste great! and the yogurt-dill sauce is perfect.
