Heart Smart Salmon Croquettes

30 mins (prep 20, cooking 10)
10 ingredients
8 servings
My significant other and I both longed for the salmon croquettes our mothers used to make, but both of us have health issues demanding that we limit salt and watch our cholesterol. We find this recipe satisfying, and a good way to get our Omega-3s while avoiding excessive salt and "harmful" fat. I process my own bread crumbs using low salt products. Contadina Italian Style Bread Crumbs render tastier croquettes, but salty. Cracker crumbs or crushed corn flakes may be substituted for bread crumbs, but check the salt content of these before you use them. Frying the croquettes in light olive oil makes them crispier, but higher in fat. I have tried all these variations, depending how health conscious I wanted to be on the day I made them, and find them all very good.
