Ingredients

1 can (9 ounces or 250 grams) Salmon Flakes
½ cup Milk
¼ cup Flour
1 Large Egg, beaten
¼ tsp Garlic Powder
1 tsp Paprika
1 1/3 tbsp Butter
2/3 Onion, grated
2/3 cup seasoned Breadcrumbs
Salt and Pepper, to taste

INSTRUCTIONS

1. In a pan over medium heat, melt the butter. Add the onion and garlic powder, and saute for about 2-3 minutes. Stir in the canned salmon and paprika. Season with some salt and pepper.

2. Stir in the flour. Gradually add the milk, whisking constantly to get rid of the lumps. Cook until the mixture thickens, and a ball is formed. Remove the pan from heat and allow it to cool to room temperature, about 45 minutes.

3. With your hands, form oval-shaped croquettes out of the mixture (they should be the size of a golf ball). Dip the croquettes in egg first, and then coat them with breadcrumbs.

4. Deep fry the croquettes in your deep fryer or in a pan filled with hot oil over medium heat. Fry until they become golden, about 5 minutes. Drain on paper towels before serving. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

If this recipe doesn’t give you that Indian heat that you love so much about the Indian cuisine, then I suggest you add about 1 tbsp of red curry paste to the recipe, and maybe serve it drizzled with some Sriracha sauce as well.

If you aren’t that ambitious and this is already too much for you, in that case, you can either cut down the Curry leaves to 3 instead of 10 leaves, or omit them altogether. I guarantee an amazing taste either way.
