Salmon & Dill Croquettes

Posted on November 29, 2010. Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: , , , , , , , , , |

THESE ARE AWESOME!!!!!  However, not incredibly filling so eat lots of veggies on the side with one of these to make it a meal.

Ingredients:

1 small sweet potato, diced

1/2 small onion, diced

2 6-oz cans salmon, drained

1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

1 teaspoon dill, dried

1 whole egg

1/2 cup yellow cornmeal (I used flax meal here)

1/8 teaspoon sea salt

1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Line a baking tray in parchment paper (or spray with cooking spray) & set aside.

Steam sweet potato & onion in about 1/4 cup of water until the potatoes are soft  & the liquid has been absorbed.  Add more liquid as needed to complete the cooking process (I had to add a lot more.)  Place potato & onion mixture in a large mixing bowl.

In a bowl, mash the salmon (bones included) with a fork.  Alternatively, you can use a food processor.

Add the salmon to the potato mixture.  Add mustard, egg & dill.  Mix with a fork.

In a separate bowl, combine the cornmeal (of flax meal), salt & pepper.

Take 1/4 of the salmon mixture at a time and use your hands to roll it into a ball.  Roll the balls in the cornmeal mixture to coat.  Add more cornmeal as needed to coat each croquette evenly.

Place croquettes on the baking tray & bake for 20 minutes.  Serve hot.
