Instructions
  1. In a small bowl combine all of your seasonings together and stir until combined well. Season your salmon and set aside.
  2. Now we’re going to cook our meats. In a large skillet melt your butter over a medium-high heat. Once pan is hot add your salmon skin down and cook for 3-5 minutes during this time make sure you are basting your salmon with the butter. Flip and cook for 30 sec- 1 min. You don’t want to over cook your salmon now or it will dry out when you bake or fry your taquitos. Set aside and let cool for 5 min. Fry your bacon to your liking and chop into bite sized pieces.
  3. In a large bowl mix your cream cheese, salmon (flaked), spinach, onions, scallions, bacon, and cheese together until fully combined.
  4. If you are baking now would be the time to pre-heat your oven to 425 degrees. If frying heat your oil up now.
  5. Wrap tortillas up in a paper towel (about 10-15 at a time) and microwave for about 30 sec-1 min to soften. Place about 2 tbsp of mixture onto tortilla and roll tightly and place on a baking dish or plate flap side down so they won’t unravel.
  6. Once tortillas are rolled prep as such; if baking brush your unbaked taquitos with oil and bake at 425 for 25-30 minutes. If frying carefully place taquitos flap side down in the oil and cook until golden brown.
Recipe Notes

Baste- Pouring or spooning melted fat and juices over meat to keep meat moist.

If frying your taquitos I suggest not using a deep fryer, this makes it easier for your tortillas to unravel and it creates a huge mess in your oil. I used my skillet and put about an inch or 2 of oil I just flipped the taquitos myself to make sure all sides were browning.

Please be aware that baking the taquitos will cause it to be a little dryer than the fried method. So I’d definently suggest serving with a dipping sauce.

PHSS- Pink Himalayan Sea Salt. You can use your preferred salt however I suggest researching the great benefits of PHSS.
