So, what do you serve with mac and cheese? When I was little....Kraft MC and hot dogs! Now, this MC and lemon pepper chicken or salmon croquettes...at least so far! The first time I made this MC, I made lemon pepper catfish. I really like the lemon pepper flavor. We used Mrs. Dash lemon pepper. I could definitely tell that there was real lemon zest in it...such pop! Just spread the seasoning on the fish and cook for about 12-15 minutes at 400F. Great meal!
Last week, I made salmon croquettes and the leftovers went well with the same MC...but with whole wheat egg noodles. We used to have the croquettes when I was little. I loved them then and love them now! You don't have to use a lot of oil to make them have a bit of a fried taste to them. I like them with ketchup.
1 can salmon (14.5oz)
1/2 cup flour
1.5 tablespoons salmon juice
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
Take salmon out of the can and clean off the skin and bones (specifically bought chicken of the sea b/c I thought this was already done...not so, not so!). In a bowl, mix together the salmon, egg, and flour. Stir together 1.5 tablespoons juice and baking powder. Then add this to the salmon mixture. In a saute pan, heat up 1 teaspoon olive oil. Form the salmon into 4 patties. When the oil is heated, place the patties in the oil. Cook for about 4 minutes on one side or until browned. Flip to the other side and cook about 4 minutes, or until browned. Remove and place on paper towel. Serve with YOUR favorite side or some mac and cheese. Enjoy!
