Easy Fish Croquettes

The first time I tasted something similar was in my aunt’s house. Aunty Maroulla was the best cook I ever met. She was a natural talent for all things concerning household, but kitchen was her kingdom.

She was funny, adorable and an excellent type of person. Although we did not have a blood relation (she was married to my grandmother’s brother) I loved her very much. Cancer took her away a few years ago.

Aunty, we all still love you and remember you a lot. In the family it is like you never left. Although your fish croquette recipe was far better than this one I want to dedicate my fish croquette recipe to you.

Form your fish croquettes in any shape that you like and set aside.

In a plate mix the flour with the thyme, oregano, salt and pepper.  Dip croquettes into the flour mixture and then fry them in plenty of vegetable oil until croquettes become golden brown.
