Mini Scotch Eggs in the Air Fryer

Sharing is caring!

This recipe uses quail eggs, hence ‘mini’ eggs, and are the perfect finger food for a party. Crispy on the outside… tender on the inside. Scotch eggs made healthier in an air fryer.

Ingredients:

  • 1 (5 ounce) can salmon, drained and flaked
  • ½ cup dried breadcrumbs
  • 2 tablespoons minced onion
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • sea salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil, or as needed
  • ¼ cup light sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon dill weed
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • sea salt to taste

Directions:

Mix salmon, breadcrumbs, onion, Dijon mustard, egg, and lemon juice together in a bowl; form into 2 patties.

Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Cook patties in the hot oil until lightly browned and cooked through, 4 minutes per side; season with sea salt and black pepper.

Mix sour cream, dill, garlic powder, and sea salt together in a bowl; serve alongside salmon patties.
