– When removing croquettes from the heat, make sure to use a heatproof slotted spoon and transfer to a paper-towel lined plate to absorb excess oil.
– Test the heat before adding in all of your croquettes. To do this, drop one croquette in and if it begins to fry, the oil is ready, if not, wait a few more minutes.
– If your croquettes are browning too quickly, reduce the heat.
Substitute canned tuna or crab for salmon if preferred.
