Turkey doesn't need to be the only protein on your post-Thanksgiving menu. Turn leftover mashed taters into a satisfying meal on the cheap with the help of canned salmon.


Potato-Salmon Croquettes
Recipe from 
Servings: 6.0
Prep Time: 20 mins
     cups  leftover mashed potatoes, chilled
    10  ounces  canned salmon, drained
     tablespoon  lemon zest
     tablespoons  chopped fresh parsley
     cup  all-purpose flour
        Salt and freshly ground pepper
    2 - 2 1/2  cups  fresh bread crumbs
    1/4  cup  vegetable oil, or more as needed
In a large bowl, combine the potatoes, salmon, 1 egg, zest, and parsley.
Put the flour in a shallow bowl and season with salt and pepper. In another shallow bowl, whisk the remaining egg with 1 tablespoon water. Place the bread crumbs in a third shallow bowl.
Using wet hands, form the potato mixture into 3-inch patties or sticks. Dip the patties in the flour, shaking off any excess, dip them in the egg wash, and then roll them in the bread crumbs, pressing the crumbs on to form a crust.
Coat the bottom of a large skillet with oil; working in batches, fry the croquettes until golden brown on both sides, about 4 to 6 minutes total. Drain on paper towels and serve immediately.
