Salmon Sliders With Dill Yogurt Sauce

Salmon Sliders With Dill Yogurt Sauce

The Super Bowl is almost here! So while I am not a huge football fan, I am a football food fanatic! Bring on the pizza, wings, yummy dips, nachos and of course sliders! I LOVE a good slider! And I wanted to share with you a trio of easy to make and delicious sliders. Perfect for the upcoming Super Bowl party or any gathering. My first being a delightful salmon slider slathered with a yummy dill yogurt sauce on a brioche bun that is sure to be a hit. I think that having a fish and veggie option is a must at any gathering. What are your Super Bowl food staples? Share in the comments below. And be on the lookout for the rest of my slider recipes throughout the week!

Salmon Sliders With Dill Yogurt Sauce

2- 6-8 ounce salmon fillets
Salt and black pepper, to taste.
Four brioche slider buns, for serving
2 cups romaine lettuce, for serving.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Line a shallow baking pan or baking sheet with parchment paper. Place salmon skin side down on the baking sheet. Drizzle olive oil over the top of the salmon and season with salt and pepper to taste.

Bake at 400 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until cooked through. Allow cooling slightly before cutting both into halves.

Place your sliced brioche buns (Toast them slightly. It makes all the difference.) on a cutting board or large plate. Spread a good amount of sauce on both the tops and bottoms of the buns. Place a piece of salmon on the bun and top with desired toppings!

Quick And Easy Papaya Smoothie

Quick And Easy Papaya Smoothie

Hey Everyone! Papaya is a fruit that as a child i was used to seeing in the household and being served at breakfast. Its a good source of vitamins A & C. It also contains tons of fiber and reduces the risk of heart disease, diabetes, and cancer. You can enjoy it freshly cut or add it to a yummy fruit salad or smoothie! Just cut off the top and bottom, then half the fruit lengthwise. Then with a spoon scoop out and discard seeds. Then cut into bite-size pieces or slices. For even more flavor I like to squeeze a little lime juice over the top. Did you know that papaya seeds are actually edible? The papaya seed is said to have a slightly peppery/mustard taste. Leave a comment below if you have ever made a dish using papaya seeds in it.

1/2 cup passion fruit juice, chilled.
1 tablespoon lime juice
1/2 cup plain greek yogurt

Just place ingredients in blender and blend. If the consistency is too thick for you just add more of your liquid ingredients or ice and continue to blend to your liking! So easy and so delicious.
