Reviews for Salmon Croquettes
"Basic recipe, still a good one though. Everyone has different tastes for certain spices.For "oven frying", I set the temp to 375*F and baked for about 20-30 minutes on a wire rack with some cooking spray (on the croquettes, also). We prefer to just fry them on a skillet or dutch oven."
"Can these be baked instead of fried? At what temperature and for how long."
