Weeknight Family Supper Meal: #4 Salmon Croquettes

12:08 AM
Weeknight Family Supper Meal, an inspiration for a meal one night of the week that may include ideas how to make part of the meal ahead, how to freeze any leftovers or how to make leftovers into a makeover for another meal.  

Most people don't know how easy it is to make salmon croquettes.  Mix up a few ingredients, mince onions, egg, and seasoning in a bowl, roll them into small little rolls, roll them around some saltine cracker crumbs and fry in oil.  Voila, salmon croquettes.   See how easy, and oh! so delicious.  Perfect for a weeknight meal.

I usually serve french fries with salmon croquettes, but sometimes I like to change it up and roast sweet potatoes instead.   This way the sweet potatoes can be roasting while I fry the croquettes.  

Like they say, kill two birds with one stone.  

To balance out the meal, I like to serve a salad preferably a marinated salad.  It just joins in with the music of the meal, savory, sweet, tangy, and delicious.  The best part of making a marinated salad is it can be made ahead, even two or three days ahead.  

How much better can it get for getting a quick meal on the table?

For a dessert I make a quick sugar cookie, is there such a recipe?  Well, sugar cookie bars are the bomb!  You cream all the ingredients together and spread the dough into a rimmed baking sheet pan and bake.  These also can be made ahead and frosted just before supper.  Change up the color of the frosting with the time of the year.  

With Valentines around the corner, the cookie bars would be perfect for your sweetie, just a thought!
