Willa's Salmon Croquette's
* A tip for mom's trying to get the kids to try differnt foods. When my children were younger, this was one of their favorite dinners! I would shape the salmon into 'dinosaurs', make baked french-fried potatoes which became the bridge for the dinosaur and broccoli trees leaning on the bridge! Such fun and they loved it! Don't forget the ketchup pond for the dino to drink from :o)
canola oilenough to cover the bottom of your skillet
2 can(s)pink sockeye salmon, drained and skin removed
1 smallonion, finely chopped
1 pkgwhole grain saltine crackers, crumbled
2 largeeggs, slightly beaten
1/2 tspground black pepper
I LIKE KETCHUP, MY FAMILY LIKES COCKTAIL SAUCE, HERE'S A QUICK AND EASY COCKTAIL SAUCE THAT GOES WELL WITH THIS DISH.
1 Tbsporiginal worcestershire sauce
1 Tbsplemon juice concentrate
1 Tbspprepared horseradish, more or less to taste
How to Make Willa's Salmon Croquette's
- In a large bowl mix together salmon, onion, crackers, eggs and pepper. Form into 3" X 1" thick patties. (Salmon should be moist enough to hold together without effort, if your salmon is too dry, try adding an extra egg)
- In a 10' heavy skillet heat enough Canola Oil to cover bottom of skillet on a heat just hotter than medium.
- Carefully place salmon patty in skillet leaving about an inch between each patty. Cook for approximately 5-8 minutes or until golden brown. Flip the patties and cook the other side for approximately 5-8 minutes or until golden brown.
- Remove from skillet and drain on paper towel. Serve hot with either ketchup or cocktail sauce (see recipe above, mix all ingredients and serve chilled). These are GREAT cold the next day too!! Sides of french fries, macoroni & cheese, sweet early peas or broccoli or a combination of these goes great with the patties!
