Mom frequently served salmon when I was a girl. Learning the ropes in the kitchen as I grew up, I got the chore of deboning the salmon. I didn't mind, because these light crisp croquettes are absolutely delicious. -Mary McGuire, Graham, North Carolina

"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."
