This is my entry for the Alaska Gold's Easy Salmon Recipe Contest!
I took our love of salmon and buffalo wings to make a super delicious lettuce wrap that my whole family loved. This recipe took me a total of 20 minutes to make, and the kids loved putting together the lettuce cups themselves. The Buffalo Salmon is smoky and a little spicy which pairs perfectly with the cool and creamy blue cheese celery and carrot salad!
Easy Salmon Buffalo Lettuce Cups
½ cup shredded carrots
½ cup thinly sliced celery
¼ cup thinly sliced green onions
2 Tablespoons good quality blue cheese salad dressing
1 package Alaska Gold Easy Salmon
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon garlic powder
½ teaspoon smoked paprika
3 Tablespoons unsalted butter
3 Tablespoons hot sauce
8 butter lettuce leaves
In a small bowl stir together the carrot, celery, green onion and blue cheese dressing until evenly combined. Set in the fridge to chill.
In a small mixing bowl stir together the salmon, salt, garlic powder and paprika.
In a large non-stick skillet, melt the butter over medium high heat. Add the salmon to the melted butter and sauté for 3-5 minutes. Stir in the hot sauce and turn the heat off.
Spoon an equal amount of chilled carrot and celery salad into each lettuce cup. Top with salmon and serve immediately.
