Salmon and Potato Croquettes

This easy, quick salmon potato recipe is a winner. The addition of salmon is excellent for health and the brainpower of Omega 3s.


For Salmon and Potato Croquettes, you will need:

440g tinned pink salmon
1 onion, grated
3 large potatoes (we love Gro Pak potatoes)
1 egg, beaten
2 tablespoons Alfa One rice bran oil dressing mayonnaise
1 teaspoon mustard
210g Crackers (preferably cheese flavour, crushed to tiny crumbs)
Rice bran oil (for cooking)
1/4 cup spring onions (chopped)

How to make Salmon and Potato Croquettes:

Drain and flake salmon; cook and mash potatoes. Combine all ingredients except crumbs,
season to taste, and form mixture into croquettes; roll in biscuit crumbs to form coating.
Cook in frypan over medium heat until golden brown; drain carefully and serve with salad and sprinkles of fresh herbs.

We love Scenic Produce potatoes with this recipe as they just seem to mash perfectly every time. One potato gives us half our daily vitamin c needs – how about that!?

    If you want the cuisine to taste authentic then I would suggest you to use kaffir lime leaves in the recipe. It adds an aroma to the cuisine and makes it a lot better than before.
