Salmon Croquettes with Sesame Ginger Dip

Salmon Croquettes are the ideal way to dress up canned salmon so you can enjoy salmon on any budget. The humble salmon becomes a star when mixed with a few ingredients, formed into patties and baked to crisp, golden perfection. A scrumptious ginger sesame dip is the ultimate finishing touch for this deceptively simple dish.
