Tilapia Croquettes

Ooooh, these were so yummy, hubby requested that I make them again SOON and make MORE. LOL  And it's so easy and fast to make!  20 minutes to prepare and maybe 20 minutes to cook!

Sorry for the lousy pictures though. LOL


This was the first time I made them in the butter the recipe calls for.  The butter burned.


This was the 2nd time I made them, this time i cooked them in olive oil - I suggest the olive oil :)


* Pickle Relish, 1/3 cup
* Kraft Mayo Light Mayonnaise , 2/3 c
* Lime Juice, 1 lime yields
* Tilapia filet, 16 oz  (I'm sure this recipe would work with any flaky fish)
* Bread crumbs, dry, grated, plain, 1.25 cup
* Egg, fresh, 1 large, lightly beaten
* Garlic, 3 cloves
* Butter, unsalted, .25 cup
* 1 tsp lime peel
* 2 tsp. lemon pepper seasoning 


Stir together mayo & relish to make tartar sauce. Add lime juice and lime peel.

Coat lg skillet with 2 tbs of butter. Cook fish fillets for 5 minutes on each side, or until fish flakes. Flake fish fillets and place in large bowl. Add 1/3 c. tartar sauce mixture, breadcrumbs, egg, garlic and lemon pepper. Shape into 6 patties.

*I actually made 12 patties with this much mixture - I just didn't make them real THICK.

Cook patties in batches in remaining 2 tbls butter over medium high heat 5 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Serve immediately with remaining tartar sauce if desired.
