Citrus Salmon Lollipuffs Holiday Appetizers

Citrus Salmon Lollipuffs Holiday Appetizers

What fun! These savory "lollipuffs" feature a bite of salmon, flavored with orange marmalade, baked in a golden puff pastry and served on skewers. They're sure to be a hit at your next gathering.

1 pound thawed frozen or fresh salmon fillet, cut into 1-inch cubes
2 tablespoons lemon juice
3 tablespoons teriyaki sauce
1 package (17.3 ounces) Puff Pastry Sheets, thawed
1/3 cup orange marmalade

Heat the oven to 400°F. Place the salmon into a medium bowl. Add the lemon juice and 2 tablespoons teriyaki sauce and toss to coat.

Unfold the pastry sheets on a lightly floured surface. Cut each pastry sheet into 16 (1/2-inch wide) strips crosswise, making 32 in all. Cut each strip in half crosswise, making 64 in all. Place 2 strips on a baking sheet to form a cross shape. Repeat with remaining strips. Place 1 piece salmon in the center of each pastry cross. Fold the ends of the pastry cross over the filling and press to seal. Turn the pastries seam-side down on the baking sheets.

Bake for 20 minutes or until the pastries are golden brown. Stir the marmalade and remaining teriyaki sauce in a small bowl. Serve the pastries on 3-inch wooden skewers with the marmalade mixture for dipping.

  • For a fun serving idea, fill a small vase with salt. Stand the ends of the skewers in the salt to make an edible arrangement.
  • Another attractive serving idea is to cut oranges or lemons in half and place them cut-side down onto a platter. Stick several lollipuff skewers into each half.
