It seems I just can’t get enough of seafood lately.
My last recipe was Crispy Fried Prawns, (check that out if you haven’t) and now I’m bringing you another seafood recipe:
Salmon & Dill Muffins with Cream Cheese.
These are honestly amazing – I prefer them warm, because the cream cheese inside melts and gets all gooey and fantastic – but even without heating them they’d still be a great snack to take to work, school, etc!
These look complicated, but they really don’t take long to make at all, and they’re so simple. It’s just a matter of whisking the ingredients together and cooking them for approximately 24 minutes!
These are definitely going to become a regular in my kitchen.
Salmon & Dill Muffins with Cream Cheese
Salmon and dill savoury muffins with a surprise dollop of melted cream cheese in the centre to tantalise your tastebuds.
Preheat your oven to 160°C (fan forced - if not, set the temperature to 170-180°C). Either spray your muffin pan with a cooking spray, or grease it using butter, or line with paper liners. I sprayed mine with a cooking spray. You can choose the size/quantity you like - I made 10 decent sized muffins with mine.
Combine the flour and baking powder in a large bowl.
Add the cheddar cheese, salmon, and dill. If the salmon is in large pieces, tear it into smaller pieces using your fingers.
Using a seperate bowl, beat the oil, buttermilk and egg together.
Place half of the oil mixture with the flour mixture and stir them together. Then add the other half and continue to mix until fully combined.
Fill your muffin trays halfway with the mixture. Add a teaspoon full of cream cheese to the centre of each muffin. Then continue to add mixture until the muffin trays are full.
Place into the oven and cook for twelve minutes. Then, turn the tray over to ensure they're cooked evenly. Cook for another twelve minutes, or until they've turned a golden colour and are slightly browning on the top.
Take out of the oven and let cool for 5 minutes before serving.
As always, let me know if you tried these & what you thought! I love hearing your feedback.
