Salmon and dill are an amazing flavor pairing! Something about the herbaceous bite of dill perfectly complements the fatty, fishy flavor of salmon. The flavor pairing is great prepared simply (a salmon steak slathered in a buttery dill sauce, for example) but even better in biscuit form. And aren’t stuffed biscuits so fun? So fun. I have a slight addiction to stuffed biscuits, starting with my Bison-Stuffed Black Pepper Biscuits, but these may be my best version yet. They’re almost too good; I ate five in one sitting! Nevermind that smoked salmon is my desert island meat (maybe tied with lamb)… I won’t be making these again until I have a house full of people to help me eat them so I can keep myself in check. 😉
They came out a bit smaller than a biscuit, so I’m calling them “bites”. Give them a try! And don’t hesitate to try a different pairing of meat and herbs. Maybe lamb and rosemary are next? Yummmm!
