Description

Croquettes typically feature a meat or mashed potato filling mixed with bechamel sauce, covered in breadcrumbs, and then fried until crisp and golden. This recipe for Tuna Croquettes features a creamy tuna filling that is seasoned with nutmeg and then covered in a breadcrumb mixture and fried in oil until golden, true to traditional croquette form.
