Here's the deal: You know the economy is tanking; it's getting more and more expensive to be a foodie, and the kicker?!! Thanksgiving is on it's way. Yep. I'm looking for food on the cheap, so that I don't have to sacrifice anything when the Big Challenge (Thanksgiving Day) arrives. With that said, I had to return to one of my childhood favorites: salmon croquette. Inexpensive and tasty. What more could you ask for?
Let's get to it. Start with canned salmon, pepper, salt and Spike.
Mix it well and shape into patties. I go an extra step and lightly dredge the patties in flour spiked with Spike. Head for a preheated nonstick skillet. Add just a touch of olive oil.
Fry until golden brown on each side, turning once. Add soup and frozen corn and you've got a filling and inexpensive meal. You know my corn and soup aren't just any old corn and soup, I had to go back to the sautéed corn with sage and roasted butternut squash soup.
Tools of the trade:
