Ingredients

How to make it

  • CROQUETTES
  • Place the tuna, onions, pepper, mustard, eggs, lemon juice, salt, pepper, parsley, Old Bay, and 1/4 cup of the Italian bread crumbs into a medium mixing bowl and mix by hand to combine.
  • Sprinkle in more bread crumbs if needed for patties to take form.
  • Divide the mixture into 8 rounds and set aside on a parchment lined half sheet pan.
  • Allow to rest for 15 minutes. (An important step...due to the lemon juice the mixture is somewhat wet).
  • Place the Panko bread crumbs into a pie plate.
  • One at a time, coat each round in the panko on all sides.
  • Heat enough olive oil to cover the bottom of a 12-inch saute pan over medium heat until shimmering.
  • Add the croquettes and cook 2 to 3 minutes on each side or until golden brown.
  • Remove to a cooling rack set over a half sheet pan lined with paper towels.
  • Allow to cool for 2 to 3 minutes before serving.
  • LEMON CAPER SAUCE
  • Stir all ingredients together
  • (lite mayo and sourcream can be used)

    These look to die for! I think Brad would like these. My mom used to make salmon croquettes all the time when I was a kid. Haven't had anything like this since then. Gonna definitely try these. Thanks Lori.
