Tasty Salmon Croquettes

I made a trip to the (buy in big bulk store AKA Costco) and purchased a rather large piece of Salmon and I’ve had to conjure up different ways to cook it this week, oddly enough I didn’t get tired of it.  My recipes were so dramatically different in taste, texture and smell that it worked out perfectly to have Salmon for 3 days.  My newest recipe find was this Salmon Croquettes, yet another fabulous recipe I found in Cooking Light!  I love the nice crunch to the outside and salty yet creamy finish to these Croquettes.  Low calories and rather filling on just two croquettes, I think the green onions, red bell peppers, egg and bread crumbs really make these patty’s quite filling.  If your interested in trying my other awesome Salmon Recipes check them out:  Bourbon Glazed Salmon, Misosayki Salmon, Asian Inspired Salmon, Salmon Cake Sandwich’s with watercress and Miso dressing and finally Smoked Salmon Bagel.

Don’t skip the Capers as they bring a nice salty finish to the dressing.
