Salmon croquettes is a great old-school dish that was once an American dinnertime staple. This recipe will get them back into your mealtime rotation. Calcium-rich canned salmon makes these super easy to get to the table. Ours are ready in about 30 minutes and feature a wheat germ coating for an earthy twist. Whip up a zesty mayo by combining 1/2 cup fat-free mayonnaise, 1 tablespoon horseradish, a bit of dill and lemon zest to spice up your patties. Add some brown rice and roasted zucchini or squash to your plate for a heartier meal. Enjoy these croquettes as a lunchtime treat as well since they reheat beautifully.
