Salmon Croquettes

Salmon Croquettes. Capers and fresh parsley in the homemade tartar sauce make a delicious compliment for this quick, healthy, and guilt-free dinner.You have no idea how excited I am to be including SALMON recipes on my blog these days! I’m especially excited about these Salmon Croquettes—pan-fried nice and crisp on the outside—which remind me of meals my grandmother used to make for our family.
