I have made many similar recipes, but this one is the best. I did use seasoned bread crumbs, egg substitute, and lemon juice instead of lemon peel; that probably brought up the flavor some, and I cooked just five minutes per side in 1 tsp. of olive oil. We like hot foods, so I used a big fat rounded tsp. of horseradish and a full 1/4 tsp. of both red and black pepper. Served with steamed new potatoes and asparagus. I was happy with one patty, but my husband ate two and thought about a third one.
Lemon-Dill Salmon Croquettes with Horseradish Sauce
Randy Mayor; Cindy Barr; Mike Wilson
Salmon is a great source of omega-3 fatty acids. A serving of croquettes supplies about a day's worth of the fat.
Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 croquette and about 1 tablespoon sauce)

- To prepare sauce, combine the first 6 ingredients in a small bowl; stir with a whisk. Cover and refrigerate.
- To prepare croquettes, combine flour and next 6 ingredients (through egg white) and 3 tablespoons breadcrumbs. Divide mixture into 4 equal portions, shaping each into a 1/2-inch-thick patty. Refrigerate for 1 hour. Place remaining 2 tablespoons breadcrumbs on a plate; dredge patties in breadcrumbs.
- Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add patties to pan; cook 9 minutes on each side or until golden. Serve with sauce.
- Wine note: Look for a crisp American pinot grigio to serve with these croquettes. Estancia Pinot Grigio 2006 ($12) is bolder than most Italian versions, with acidic verve and a little fizz that smooths out the horseradish sauce. The wine's green apple flavor and citrus acidity marry well with the dish's zesty lemon and herbal notes. —Jeffery Lindenmuth
