Salmon Wonton Tostadas

Wednesday, January 9, 2013

Tonight was the second time in less than two weeks that we have had these Salmon Wonton Tostadas for dinner and we just can't get enough! I make salmon frequently because we all love it, but I can get in a rut of making it the same 3 ways over and over again. I was wanting to do something different and was inspired by Applebee's Asian Chicken Wonton Tacos that I had tried a few weeks ago! 

Salmon Wonton Tostadas
Serves 2 adults and 2 little kiddos

  • 1/2 package of Nasoya wonton wrappers
  • 1 bag of coleslaw
  • 1 cup + 1/2 cup Asian Toasted Sesame Dressing and Marinade (I used the Safeway store brand because it does not contain high fructose corn syrup.) 
  • 2 salmon fillets
  • 1/4 cup finely diced red onion (optional)
  • Expeller pressed coconut oil for frying wontons
  • Place salmon fillets in a small glass dish and cover with 1 cup of the Asian dressing. Allow to marinate in the fridge for at least 30 minutes (longer is even better!). 
  • In a bowl combine coleslaw mix, red onion, and 1/2 cup of dressing. Allow to marinate in the fridge for 30 minutes as well. 
  • Heat coconut oil in a pan (I used my cast iron pot) over medium low heat.
  • Once oil is hot add wonton wrappers 1 at a time and fry until crisp. They burn quick to really watch them and turn them a few times with metal tongs to ensure even frying. Drain on paper towels or paper bags. 
  • Remove salmon from marinade, preheat broiler, and broil salmon for 8-10 minutes or until desired doneness is reached. 
  • Once salmon is cooked you can assemble your tostadas! Place a spoonful of coleslaw on each wonton and then top each one with a few slivers of salmon. Enjoy!
