Jillian’s Salmon Wontons Recipe Inspired By Vietnamese Cuisine

by Samantha McLeod

We love these Vietnamese-inspired Salmon Wontons for the healthy bites…equal amounts salmon and vegetables all together.

After Jillian Dang’s (pictured below) last visit to us with a bowl of her exotic beef stew, the comfort dish of Vietnamese Bo Kho, we asked her to create something with fresh salmon, on the spot. She went on to wow us in about 15 minutes…with a dish she had never thought to make before.

Jillian quickly ran through the pantry to gather up her mise. Unfortunately, the pantry was not well stocked with Vietnamese condiments and seasonings, but she did improvise like a true boss.

Side note: Shaking her head in disappointment, she told us we must visit the Vietnamese grocery store with her. Our trip is planned for the near future.

This dish is also featured on SeaWestNews, an aquaculture news site that features wild and farmed seafood from around the globe.

The dish she whipped up is a twist on spring rolls and wontons. Quite smart, we must say. We love these Vietnamese-inspired Salmon Wontons for the healthy bites of equal amounts salmon and vegetables all together. These are great for steaming and serving with chilli oil and soy sauce mix, or for freezing for later uses to be dropped into Pho, and other soups.
