Bursting with flavor and texture, this dish offers a delightful fusion of zesty lemon, bold pepper, succulent salmon, and creamy blue cheese, creating a culinary experience that’s sure to impress.

To begin, prepare the salmon fingers by slicing fresh salmon fillets into strips, resembling fingers. Season them generously with lemon pepper seasoning, ensuring each piece is coated evenly for maximum flavor.

Next, create a crispy coating for the salmon fingers by dredging them in a mixture of breadcrumbs, panko crumbs, and a touch of grated Parmesan cheese. This coating will add a satisfying crunch to each bite and complement the savory flavors of the salmon.

Once coated, heat a skillet with a drizzle of olive oil over medium-high heat. Carefully place the salmon fingers in the skillet and cook them until they’re golden brown and crispy on all sides, flipping them occasionally to ensure even cooking.

While the salmon fingers are cooking, prepare the Zesty Blue Cheese Dip by combining creamy blue cheese with tangy Greek yogurt, a squeeze of fresh lemon juice, minced garlic, and chopped chives. Mix everything together until smooth and well combined, adjusting the flavors to your liking with additional lemon juice or seasoning if needed.

Once the salmon fingers are cooked to perfection, remove them from the skillet and transfer them to a serving platter. Garnish with fresh lemon wedges and chopped parsley for a vibrant pop of color and freshness.

Serve the Crispy Lemon Pepper Salmon Fingers with the Zesty Blue Cheese Dip on the side for dipping. The creamy, tangy dip perfectly complements the crispy salmon fingers, adding an extra layer of flavor and indulgence to each bite.

Whether you’re serving them as a crowd-pleasing appetizer at a dinner party or enjoying them as a satisfying main dish for a weeknight dinner, these Crispy Lemon Pepper Salmon Fingers with Zesty Blue Cheese Dip are sure to be a hit with seafood lovers and flavor enthusiasts alike.
