Salmon Croquettes were a total accident. I failed at trying to get the bones out of the salmon my husband caught in Alaska and was left with a pile beautiful flaky fish that I could no longer cook as a whole piece… enter croquettes. These little babies were relatively quick to make and while they take about 5 mins on each side to cook I was able to make the dill sauce, creamed spinach, and ghiradelli boxed brownies during each 5 min flip. Not bad for a friday!
** I know the ingredient list looks long and intimidating… but I had all of this stuff on hand because this was a last minute dinner fix. So, try it… your husband will be super impressed and you should be impressed with yourself!
2 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 Vidalia onion, minced
1 clove garlic, minced
2 bunches spinach, stemmed and chopped
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg
1/4 cup heavy cream
In a medium saute pan over medium-high heat, melt butter and then add the olive oil. Mix in the onions and garlic; cook for 2 minutes until soft. Add the chopped spinach and warm through. Add the salt, nutmeg and the heavy cream. Mix well. Cook until liquid reduces by half, roughly 3 to 4 minutes.
