Salmon Bites

Corey Richard’s Maple + Molasses Salmon Bites

If you’re a Hampton, New Brunswick local, you’re probably already familiar with the incredible Corey’s BBQ restaurant, Beer Daddy BBQ. So, it was a no-brainer for us to ask Corey for his expertise in creating a new recipe using our newest product, our Maple + Molasses. Once you taste it, you will see how Corey has knocked it out of the park with these delectable salmon bites. Quick, easy, and delicious, they were baked to perfection in the oven, but don’t hesitate to try them on a smoker or grill for that extra smoky flavour.

    Sounds awesome – any suggestion on the ratio for the maple syrup/molasses mixture? We cannot purchase the Maple+Molasses product here yet (emphasis on the “yet”; hoping it makes its way to Ontario shelves near us soon!). I am going to make this but was thinking I’d do 1/4 cup maple syrup and 1/4 cup molasses.
