Salmon Croquettes

Tastes & Treasures cookbook has several great salmon recipes. My favorite is Salmon Tostada on page 32 from historic El Tovar at the Grand Canyon.

This recipe calls for canned salmon but we had leftover from the grill and it worked very well.

Salmon Croquettes
1 can (1 pound) salmon, drained and flaked
1 cup corn kernels, canned or cooked
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1/4 cup ketchup
2 tablespoons finely chopped onion
2 tablespoon finely chopped red bell pepper, optional
1/4 teaspoon salt
dash ground black pepper
3/4 cups soft bread crumbs 

Combine flaked salmon with corn kernels, beaten eggs, ketchup, onion, bell pepper, salt, pepper, and bread crumbs. Shape mixture into 12 patties. Heat vegetable oil in a heavy skillet; fry salmon croquettes for about 1 1/2 minutes on each side, or until croquettes are golden brown.
Serves 6. If desired, serve with cucumber sauce or cheese sauce.
