Lent and meatless Friday’s are starting soon. So inspired in grandma’s bacalao empanadas for lent I made Spanish salmon empanadas.

The Spanish Salmon Empanadas are fairly easy to make and so flavorful. The ingredients include ready to use canned salmon, garlic, capers, olives, olive oil, diced potatoes and tomato puree.

We bought the 2.2 lb version to add flavor to many of our favorite latino dishes. Such as the traditional Mexican rice, picadillo chiles rellenos, grilled beef salad, and many more.

What a fantastic idea! I love salmon and I love empanadas…Your take on standard recipes – as always – looks especially yummy =) P.s. Your salmon pie looks pretty scrumptious too!

Empanadas are my favorite and I can eat them anytime. This is a great recipe to make for a crowd and I can totally make this vegetarian.

Daniela Anderson

One of my good Spanish friends used to bring some empanadas every time she was going home to visit her family. I never tried to make empanadas myself, but I absolutely adore salmon, it must be the perfect filling. Brilliant recipe!

Amanda

These sounds delicious! Your photography is absolutely gorgeous…really showcases the empanadas.

I love these empanaditas Adriana. They are in between the fried empanadas de cazón that we have en Venezuela, and the more elaborated Empanada Gallega from Galicia.
