Salmon Croquettes

These tasty little Salmon Croquettes are the cousin of the crab cake.  Crab cakes are one of my favorite things but its not always easy to find quality crab meat & the time it takes to crack & sort through fresh crab meat is more than most people want to spend so these yummy little croquettes make a really great alternative.  These Salmon Croquettes have a really great flavor alone, but if you want a sauce to go with them then the honey mustard dipping sauce with this Chicken recipe would be perfect.  Serve them with an arugula salad & you have a full meal.
