Cooking Lab - Spanish Salted Salmon Fritters (煙燻鮭魚可樂餅)

Ok, I tweaked this Cooking Lab slightly - it was meant to be bolinhos de bacalhau (salt cod fritters) - but I just like to use existing ingredients on hands. So I am using salted salmon instead. They are all fish and cured in salt~!

Palm sized fritter of salted salmon and mash potato, first crumbed and fried. So good~!

They are pack in tones of flavor - mainly saltiness and moreishness. Crisp and crunchy - you will love these golden croquette-style fritters.

Regardless, I think this concoction turned out really well! Exceedingly pleased.
