If you are looking for a way to get more salmon into your family’s diet, Baked Salmon Croquettes are a delicious option. You can even make these with tuna.
Not too long ago, a local store was going out of business and I was able to get canned salmon for half-price! Needless to say, I stockpiled and bought all they had!
I like to include fish in my meal planning but to be honest, I have to buy so much to feed my hungry crew that it is not nice to my budget!
Baked Salmon Croquettes are a budget friendly way to get fish on the menu without breaking the bank.
I love the fact that they are baked but you can also give them a little more color and crispness in a frying pan. Normally, mine go from the oven to the table but I’m just saying, for that little something extra…
