To come up with a festive Shabbos Chanukah appetizer, I took inspiration from everyone’s favorite Chanukah treat, sufganiyot. Wrapping the salmon around itself makes for beautiful presentation, and the combination of raspberry jam and balsamic vinegar is the perfect blend of sweet and tangy.
Raspberry Balsamic Salmon Wheels
- Cooking and Prep: 30 m
- Serves: 3
Prepare the Salmon Wheels
Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C).
In a small bowl, combine the jam, vinegar, mustard, lemon juice, salt, and pepper.
Starting at the thinner end, wrap two salmon fillets together in a pinwheel shape. Thread two skewers through opposite sides of the pinwheel to secure the shape.
Brush the raspberry jam mixture over the salmon and arrange in a lined baking pan. Bake, uncovered, for 20 minutes.
To make smaller salmon wheels and double the serving size, just slice your salmon thinner. Bake for 15 minutes.
