Ingredients
  • 8 ounces baked or poached salmon, flaked
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 2 cups mashed potatoes
  • 1 small white onion, diced
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • Salt and pepper
  • 6 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • Peanut oil, for frying
Directions

Mix the salmon, eggs, mashed potatoes, onion and garlic in a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Stir in the flour to hold the mixture together.

Form the mixture into golf-ball-size balls. Refrigerate 1 hour or overnight.

Heat about 1 inch of peanut oil in a large straight-sided skillet until a deep-fry thermometer registers 325 degrees. Fry the croquettes, in batches, until crisp and golden on one side, 3 to 4 minutes, adjusting the heat as necessary. Turn and cook until golden on the other side, 1 to 2 more minutes. Drain on paper towels.
