----------------------------HOME COOKING SAMPLER----------------------------
2 tb Butter; softened
1 1/2 lb Fresh salmon; cooked and
-flaked to make about 3 cups
2 c Fresh bread crumbs; made frm
-2 sl quality white bread,
-crusts removed
1 tb Scallion, white only; minced
1 tb Fresh dill; snipped
1/2 Lemon; zest of, grated
1 Egg
1 c Heavy cream
1/2 ts Salt
Black pepper
Cayenne pepper

1/2 c Sour cream
Lemon wedges

Preheat the oven to 350~. Thoroughly grease 6 individual ramekins or
custard cups with 1 tbsp of the butter. Place the flaked salmon in a bowl.
Add 3/4 cup of the bread crumbs, the scallion, dill, lemon zest, egg, and
cream. Mix gently with a fork. Season with salt, pepper, and cayenne
pepper. Divide the mixture among the buttered cups and pack it down
slightly. Top the croquettes with the remaining 1/4 cup of bread crumbs.
Dot with the remaining tbsp of butter.

Arrange the cups in a roasting pan. Pour in enough hot water to come
halfway up the sides of the ramekins. Bake until fairly firm and set, about
30 mins. Cool for 5 to 10 mins. The croquettes can be unmolded, right side
up, or served in the ramekins. Top each croquette with sour cream and
caviar, or simply garnish with lemon.
