Salmon Croquettes

Ingredients

1 cup to 2 leftover salmon meat
1/4 cup minced fresh parsley leaves
1 teaspoon peeled and minced or grated fresh ginger or garlic (optional)
1 egg
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
Plain bread crumbs as needed
Lemon wedges

Preparation

1
Combine the first eight ingredients; add just enough bread crumbs to stiffen the mixture, but dont make it too dry.
2
Shape into small cakes; dredge in bread crumbs, then dry on a rack, refrigerated, for 15 to 30 minutes. Heat a large, deep skillet over medium heat for 2 or 3 minutes.
3
Add a film of the olive oil and cook the croquettes until they are browned on both sides, about 10 minutes total.
4
Serve with lemon wedges.

About

From Mark Bittman's "How to Cook Everything." About the recipe he says, "Whole salmon are large, which often means leftovers; this is the ideal use for them. If you don't want to pan-fry these croquettes, you can broil or even grill them. Keep them six to eight inches away from the heat to avoid burning."
