Salmon Croquettes

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Rubies

My mommy's. Really good with black-eyed peas and cornbread. If you have time to make these ahead, they taste really good if you can refrigerate them for an hour or two before frying. However, it's not necessary to do this, and I've not included refrigeration time in the time to make.

Outstanding and delicious. Easy to make. It reminds me of my mother's good ole' Southern recipe.
