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.

  4. Hi!

    Thanks for sharing your Easy Fish Croquettes dish with me. They look delicious--especially in the frying pan. I can almost hear them sizzling looking at the photo. My family and I eat fish, beans, and tofu as our primary protein (we're pescetarian) and I constantly seek out novel ways to prepare fish and other seafood.

    I'm not familiar with Cypriot potatoes (is there another name for them)? I live in the Washington, D.C. area, so I'm sure I can find them somewhere.

  13. Hi everybody, thanks for your comments! You can make this dish with chicken as well.
    Cypriot potatos are very well knowed in Europe I am sure you will be able to find them in other continents as well. They are not very sweet and they make perfect French fries.

  33. Croquette is one of my favorite culinary words. Makes me think of drums and tapdancers and town celebrations at the central square with lights and streamers everywhere. Making fish croquettes is a great way to make a limited amount of fish last for more than one meal.

Mickey Mouse Birthday Cake

This cake was made for Demetris, an adorable two year old boy!  I hope he likes it. His mother told me that he likes Mickey Mouse very much!
Here you can see the cake decoration steps.  I used buttercream, in order to make the surface of the cake smooth.

This cake took me 3 hours to decorate it. The black part was the hardest to finish. I used wilton's black decoratcing icing. Happy Birthday Demetri!!!
