They can be assembled ahead of time and only take a few minutes to pan fry.

The Cilantro Mayonnaise tastes wonderful with them. It’s a simple mixture of mayonnaise, lemon juice, shallots, lemon pepper seasoning, Worcestershire sauce, and red pepper flakes. And of course, cilantro! If you’re a cilantro lover, you cant’ find a better salmon croquette recipe than this one. If you’re not a cilantro lover, just substitute parsley.
