Salmon Croquettes

Anyone who has been hanging out around here for awhile can probably tell that I’m not a fish person. Shrimp is as fishy as I get normally but for some reason these salmon croquettes in the newest issue of Cooking Light spoke to me.

I was surprised at how much I liked them. The texture, I guess because I used canned salmon, was almost like a fishstick. Even the 2 year old loved them!

I just made a simple sauce of about 1/4 cup Greek yogurt, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, and maybe 1/4 teaspoon fresh dill. It was good but I really don’t think they need any kind of sauce. Some lemon juice squeezed over top would be just perfect.

Salmon Croquettes

adapted from Cooking Light

2 tablespoons Greek yogurt

1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

1 teaspoon dijon mustard

1/4 cup finely chopped green onions

2 tablespoons minced red pepper

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper

2 (5-ounce) cans pink salmon

1 egg, lightly beaten

1 cup panko breadcrumbs

1 tablespoon oil, for frying

Combine Greek yogurt, 1 tablespoon juice, 1 1/2 teaspoons mustard, and next 7 ingredients(through egg), stirring well. Add panko; toss. Shape mixture into 3-inch patties (I got 7, original recipe says 8).

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add patties; cook 5 minutes on each side or until browned.

    Mmm…they sound yummy! At first I read “green yogurt” and then later you wrote “Greek yogurt” which made much more sense! haha.
