Catch some baked salmon rolls!

I am more than just an employee who asks for receipts and cost accounting codes. I love to cook and bake and many of my coworkers have sampled my baking endeavors. Please try this recipe that went over especially well with the fish biologists at our office!

Sweet and savory, with a taste of the orient, aimed to please a lot of appetites.
Makes 16 – 4 inch rolls



12 ounces boneless and skinless salmon

1 Tablespoon dried minced onion

1 Tablespoon hoisin sauce

1 Tablespoon seafood cocktail sauce

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

1/8 teaspoon Chinese five spice

1/4 cup mayonnaise

1 Tablespoon lemon juice


Combine all ingredients till well mixed.


2 packages active dry yeast

3/4 cup warm milk (120◦)

1/3 cup sugar

1/4 cup melted butter

1 teaspoon salt

2 eggs, room temperature

3 ½ cups all-purpose flour

2 Tablespoons milk

1 ounce of sesame seeds (optional)
16 pieces 3x3 inch waxed paper


Combine 1 ½ cups of the flour and the yeast in a bowl.

Heat and stir milk, sugar, butter, and salt until warm (120◦). Add to flour/yeast mixture with eggs. Beat with an electric mixer on low speed for a minute till all ingredients are mixed into a thick batter. Beat on high speed for a few minutes till mixture is smooth.

Gradually mix in the rest of the flour in with a spoon to make dough firm. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and workable (about 5 minutes).

Place dough in a greased bowl, turn dough over to grease surface, and cover and allow dough to rise in a warm place until doubled in bulk (1 to 1 ½ hours).

Punch down dough, and turn out onto a lightly floured surface. Allow dough to rest 2 minutes before cutting into 16 equal pieces.

Roll out each piece into a ball, and then roll into a 4 inch circle, dusting with flour if necessary. Place 1 heaping tablespoon of filing in center of dough.

Pull dough over filling and close top by crimping and pinching edges together.

Place roll on piece of waxed paper, folded edge down. Space rolls 2 inches apart on a cookie sheet. Allow to rise 30 to 45 minutes in a warm oven (95◦F).

Brush gently with milk and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Bake at 350◦F for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
