Salmon Croquettes w/Jalapeno Mustard Dill Sauce

Diane Atherton


This was probably my dad's personal favorite. I remember him (not my mother) frying these often when I was growing up.

When I first started cooking, I would call my dad and get step by step instructions on how to make these.

This remains a favorite in our household. Over the years, I've made a few minor changes but still they are very much like my dads.

This is a very tasty cost effient meal.

Hope you enjoy as much as I do.
