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.
1-1/2 cups cooked salmon meat, crumbled*
1 cup almond flour
3 tablespoons finely chopped green onion
1 eggs, slightly beaten
1/2 cup + 1 tablespoon avocado oil
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 tablespoons herbs de provence
1/2 teaspoon each: salt, pepper & garlic powder
*i either use leftover salmon or just wrap up salmon in a parchment package & bake for about 8 minutes to medium - this will take about 1 pound of salmon

form mixture into 3 inch round croquettes that are about 1/2" thick & press firmly together to form shape
