Salmon Croquettes

Salmon Croquettes by EclecticRecipes.com #recipe

One of my least favorite dinners as a kid was salmon croquettes. I think it was become mom used canned salmon in her croquettes. They were okay, but definitely not my favorite dinner. Over the years I have tried to improve upon her croquettes, adding different ingredients and trying different flavor combinations. A few years ago I finally figured out how to make awesomely addictive croquettes, and it was as simple as using the freshest salmon available.

Now salmon croquettes are on e of my family’s favorite dinners. For the bread crumbs, I used whole wheat Wasa crackers that I pulsed in my food processor until they were fine. Wasa crackers make a delicious and healthy bread crumb that acts as a filler in these croquettes, as well as creating an amazingly crunchy coating.

For flavor, I also added chopped red onion, roasted red pepper and garlic. This recipe is really versatile though, you could add fresh dill and celery, cilantro and poblano peppers, green onions and Italian parsley, or whatever you have available in you refrigerator.

To finish these, I topped them with a creamy lemon sauce made simply with mayonnaise, lemon and grainy mustard. I served them with a simple salad and lemon wedges.
