COOKING DISASTERS THAT CAN BE AVOIDED BY CAREFULLY UNDERSTANDING ALL INSTRUCTIONS:
Such a funny story. I have never made these bad boys before so I thought I would try something new. Most of you know I am veggie now but I will eat fish on occasion. Now, with this recipe, I was instructed to put oil in the pan and cook until brown on each side. Well, for some reason my brain told me to deep fry these guys. Nope, the first one I put in the deep fry oil completely fell apart. Then common sense came back to me and I realized you are simply going to saute or brown them. No more than a thin coat of oil in the bottom of pan. Geesh. Been a long week apparently. :D
The croquettes have a good flavor. The remoulade sauce turned out great! I served mine over a bed of red beans and rice. So yummy! Enjoy...
