MamaDoll's Salmon Croquettes
This is a newer recipe to me, garnered from a recipe I got from my grandmother, MamaDoll. The recipe was found in the cookbook her mother gave her when she first got married--her only recipe book for years, and the only one she still refers to. I don't remember the name of the cookbook, the cover was laminated over because it had fallen off.
I'd never tasted Salmon croquettes before, but these are so incredibly tasty they are one of my favorite lunch treats. I will mix everything early in the week, and make a few croquettes each day for lunch. It is so tasty it only lasts a couple days!!
Salmon, 16 oz can (2 cups)
Onion, 1 tbs grated
Lemon juice, 1 tbs
Thick white sauce, 1 cup
Soft bread crumbs or mashed potatoes, 1 cup
salt, 1/2 tsp
pepper, 1/4 tsp
2 eggs, slightly beaten
Combine all ingredients except 1 egg and flour; chill. Shape into croquettes;
Beat second egg, dip croquettes in egg than flour and fry in deep hot fat (375-385 F) until browned. Drain on absorbent paper. Makes 6 servings.
