Salmon patties―you may know them as the slightly rounder croquettes―are among my favorite casual entrées. They offer simplicity, health benefits, and economy. Reader Kathy Reeme took basic croquettes to new heights with cornmeal mix and buttermilk as well as an easy drop-and-fry cooking method. The crunchy and delicious results can be on the table in 25 minutes―assuming your family doesn’t eat them all first.
