FOOD:
Fresh Salmon
Croquettes



If you ever have some left over poached salmon, 
it's a great opportunity to make salmon croquettes.

Ingredients:
To 6 oz. of cold poached salmon (shredded / no skin)
add very thin sliced + some diced onion
1 Tbs mayo
1/2 tsp creamy horseradish sauce
black pepper & salt
1/2 tsp Old Bay
pinch dried dill
dash dried roasted garlic
chopped chive greens
bread crumbs
dash of half & half

Instructions:
Mix all until it forms a nice firm texture, not to mushy
Form patties
Dip patties in bread crumbs
sauté in olive oil 

From start of prep to finished cooking was 15 to 20 minutes. 

These croquettes were very light in texture / held together fairly well, but were not very firm. An egg may have helped hold the croquettes together, but I would do it exactly this way. 

These salmon croquettes were delicious,
served with salad greens & cucumber.
Mmmmm! Very tasty!

Until later,
Jack
