The Recipe – A Dash of Soul Food Magic
- 1 1/2 pounds fresh salmon
- 1/2 cup finely chopped onion
- 1/4 cup finely chopped celery
- 1/4 cup finely chopped red pepper
- 1/4 cup mayonnaise
- 1/4 cup breadcrumbs
- 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
- 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1/4 cup fresh dill, chopped
- Salt and pepper, to taste
- Vegetable oil, for frying
- Begin by preheating your oven to 400°F. Place the salmon on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake for about 12-15 minutes, or until flaky. Once cooked, let it cool.
- In a large bowl, combine the chopped onion, celery, red pepper, mayonnaise, breadcrumbs, Dijon mustard, Worcestershire sauce, lemon juice, fresh dill, salt, and pepper.
- Flake the cooled salmon with a fork and add it to the bowl of ingredients. Mix everything together until well combined.
- Shape the mixture into individual croquettes, about the size of your palm. Heat vegetable oil in a frying pan, and gently place the croquettes in the hot oil.
- Fry the croquettes for about 3-4 minutes on each side, or until they are golden brown and crispy.
- Transfer the cooked croquettes to a paper towel to remove any excess oil.
- Serve the salmon croquettes with a dollop of dill sauce, and garnish with a sprig of fresh dill on top.
