READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by JackieOhNo

From Calcium-Rich Canned Salmon Recipes in Good Food Magazine March 1988. I think this makes an elegant first course, or a light supper with a salad.

Absolutely delicious! We love salmon croquettes and this recipe is one of the best that I have tried. Loved the combination of the corn, cilantro, red pepper and red onion along with the lime juice and the vinaigrette using the same ingredients. It gave them a real southwest flavor! Made for the Newest Zaar tag, January, 2012.
