What's for Dinner- Baked Salmon Croquettes

Seafood cakes or croquettes are very popular in Trinidad, esp as appetizers. However you can always form your patties larger for a nice lunch or the meat for your dinner. Usually seafood cakes are shallow friend in vegetable oil, but tonight i decided to bake them. This "epiphany" did not stem from a desire to be healthier, rather just my disdain (at times) for the frying process. The health aspect i thought of later, haha. Try this recipe and may not ever fry another salmon or crab cake ever!!
