Mini Blackened Salmon Sliders on Pretzel Buns. Easy-to-make blackened salmon on mini pretzel buns with sliced avocado, pineapple, red onions and baby greens! Perfect for dinner or entertaining!
I know what you’re thinking…and the answer is no, I never get tired of eating seafood.
It’s my second favorite food (after Latin food, of course!). Seriously, when I visit a non-hispanic restaurant, 9 times out of 10, my entree has some kind of fish in it. But I’m sure you’ve heard me talk about this millions of times.
So moving on. ;)
While in Whole Foods the other day, I came across these mini pretzel buns which I thought were ADORABLE! Pretzel buns are so good, right? Oddly enough, I’m not a huge fan of actual soft pretzels. Give me a pretzel bun though and I’m allllll about it.
I knew these would taste amazing with some blackened salmon! And I gotta say these salmon sliders are not only cute but they are DELICIOUS!

The mix of the spicy from the spice blend on the salmon and sweet from the pineapple make the perfect combo! I love these for entertaining at home or even as appetizers.
Also, pro tip – cut the salmon BEFORE pan frying. I thought it would be easier to cut the already cooked salmon but it was a bit messy. It doesn’t matter in the grand scheme of things but if you’re OCD like me, you’ll get upset at the not-so-perfect squares.
Whatever, we ate them anyway! :)
Also, I usually place the condiments on the side but you should definitely add a good 2 tablespoons of your favorite mustard or mayo to each one of these babies.
Can’t wait for you to try them!
I hope you make these and you LOVE them!
