Salmon Croquettes

1/4 cup italian bread crumbs
2 lightly scrambled eggs
1 15 oz. can of flaked salmon
3 cloves fresh garlic (optional)
1/2 medium onion (optional)

Get a large skillet of vegetable oil piping hot (you know its hot enough when you see waves, or you stick the back end of a wooden spoon in and little bubbles form around it). Combine all ingredients, form into small patties. Pat additional breadcrumbs on the outside of each patty. Fry for 2 minutes on each side. Drain and serve! Yumm-o! :D

**Do not overcook. They cook deceptively quickly and you don't want a mouth full of burned patty. The original recipe called for regular bread crumbs. I had italian on hand (includes oregano, garlic powder and parmesan cheese) so I used those. WAY more delicious than I had even anticipated. Invigorating. Enjoy.
