Crispy Bites of JOY!
These are Big Goo approved. And he doesn’t like salmon as I have mentioned in the past. He described them as crispy bites of spicy joy! Yep, his words, not mine!
If you’re not a big fan of salmon you can use white fish, shrimp, tuna, or crab.
These will turn out great no matter what fish or seafood you use, just try them and you will be addicted.
If you don’t like panko bread crumbs feel free to substitute with Italian bread crumbs. We’re going for the big crunch people!
Just a golden bite! I cook these in butter, yes butter and extra virgin olive oil. You can use all olive oil if you like.
Time to EAT! Don’t forget some extra hot sauce on the side. Poor baby girl, being allergic to seafood is just not fun…
