Sinfully delicious! My mother used to serve salmon croquettes with a white sauce. Me? I prefer crab. I like the croquettes with a Caesar salad, steamed asparagus with lemon, and warm crusty bread and cold butter. Add a nice white wine and I'm in heaven.
When I was small, I would spend the night with my great-grandparents, sleeping in a cloud of a feather bed, covered with a gorgeous hand made quilt. And in the morning she would make corn cakes for breakfast, served with a pat of butter on top and homemade jam or preserves.
This recipe was given to me by an elderly lady who was a legendary hostess in her time. She said it came from a famous club and it was very difficut to wrangle the recipe from the chef, but now the secret is out! Delicious!
