Sometimes in our family we like to have a bunch of appetizers for dinner instead of cooking a typical meal. This would normally consist of things like cheese sticks, breaded cauliflower, breaded mushrooms … well you get the point. Since deciding to change our eating habits snacks have been few and far between. I just haven’t really had a chance to take the time to create any new recipes or adapt old favorites to meet our new lifestyle. Enter this weeks theme for Sunday Supper.. Tapas.. and yay time to create something that fits the theme and fits our lifestyle! I started doing some research on Tapas and finally decided that I would try to make Low-Carb Salmon Croquettes. I’m so excited to share them with you. You are going to LOVE them! Even the contrary 11 year old liked them.
Oh and don’t be scared by the name because I promise they are so much easier than the name sounds!
So, just in case you don’t know what Tapas are.. because well I really didn’t I thought I’d share a little of what I found out during my research. I knew that Tapas were small plates – meaning small plates of food but I did not know that Tapas is Spanish for a variety of appetizers or snacks. There you have it just in case you were wondering like I was.

Low-Carb Salmon Croquettes
1 can salmon (drained)
1/4 cup green onions (diced)
1/2 cup pork rinds (crushed)
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/4 cup vegetable oil
4 Tablespoons Mayonnaise
2 Teaspoons Chinese Hot Mustard
Clean as much skin and large bone as you can from the salmon and discard it.
Take a fork and smash the salmon well in a bowl, crushing any small bones that are left and flaking the salmon.
Add one egg and mix thoroughly.
Add green onions, salt and pepper and stir to mix.
Put pork rinds in a food processor and pulse until they are crumbs that resemble bread crumbs. You will need to do enough to have 1/2 cup of crushed pork rinds. If you do not have a food processor you can put them in a baggie and crush with your hands.
Form small logs with the salmon mixture and then coat with the pork rind crumbs.
Fry on medium/high heat until lightly browned on all sides.
Remove from pan and place on a paper towel lined plate to soak up any excess oil.
Stir mayonnaise and hot mustard together in a bowl. Add diced green onions if you like for garnish. Serve with croquettes for dipping.
