Tuna Croquettes (originally salmon)

I got this recipe from the French Metro newspaper. It was for salmon but I thought I would just substitute in tuna and see if it worked out.

  • 3/4 cup Italian breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 1 can of tuna (originally salmon)
  • 1 egg
  • Parsley, garlic, salt and pepper to taste

1. Mix 1/2 cup of the breadcrumbs with the Parmesan cheese in a shallow dish and set aside.

2. Mix all other ingredients together.

3. Form tuna mixture into 4 balls. Roll in reserved breadcrumb mixture.

4. Fry until golden on each side.

Verdict: I did not like these at all. Maybe the tuna for salmon swap wasn’t a good fit, taste wise, but I found these just weird tasting. I may have also burned them.
