A few nights ago, when I made potato skins and meatballs for dinner, I had a container full of cooked potato flesh.
So, the next night, I pun masuklah dapur nak buat tuna croquettes but bila selongkar2 pantry, tak jumpa pulak canned tuna.
But I found canned pink salmon instead.
So, I pun buatlah pink salmon croquettes instead.
Croquettes ni macam bergedil lah but instead of mince beef, I guna salmon and instead of just telur aje untuk balut the bergedil, I guna tepung, telur dan breadcrumbs untuk salut the croquettes.
Kalau pan fry the croquettes, ada kemungkinan besar they’ll break apart masa tengah pan frying tu.
Kalau nak oven bake, I guess boleh jugak tapi kena spray with olive oil sebelum membakar dia lah.
And like bergedil, they are much yummier if they are deep fried .
So, I pun deep fried them lah so anak2 and Dad anak2 akan kata my croquettes are yummy, hehehe.
And sebab dah ada deep fried stuff, kenalah ada salad to balance out the ‘badness’ kan.
I made lentils, capsicum and cucumber salad with panfried halloumi cheese.
We all jarang makan lentils ni so bila sekali sekala makan, memang sedap lah. I cuma guna canned lentils aje, tinggal tus/drain and guna, sangat lah senang nya kan.
And the croquettes ingredients are a canned of pink salmon, mashed cooked potato, salt, mustard, paprika and chives. Shape them into sausage shape then coat them.
First you coat them with flour, then dip them in eggwash (egg+ a bit of milk) and then coat them in breadcrumbs.
Leave them to ‘set’ for around 30-60 minutes in the fridge before frying them.
The Other Half and I had them with sweet chilli sauce, Miss 13 had them with tomato sauce and Miss 9 had them with BBQ sauce.
kalau nak makan dengan sambal kicap pun boleh aje, no worries punya, hahahaha.
