I previously posted about salmon croquettes made from canned salmon. Today I took advantage of this pantry favorite and made enough patties for dinner today and again tomorrow (with different vegetables as sides).
Equipment used: While the croquettes browned in my large cast iron skillet, I steamed the squash and onions over low heat in my 1 quart stainless steel saucepan. The fresh green beans cooked in my pressure cooker for two minutes. Leftover salmon croquettes will be reheated a couple of minutes in my air fryer oven.
Salmon croquettes make a quick and satisfying meal. The salmon mixture can be prepared up to a day ahead.A 14 3/4 oz. can of salmon yields four servings.
I knew this meal would come in handy. It’s from Sam’sClub, a Members Mark Meatloaf and Mashed Potatoes meal I had tucked away in the freezer. Although itserves two, we aren’t big eaters and this makes 4 servings for us. I will use the Reheat setting on my air fryer oven for half the (thawed) package, refrigerating the remaining half.
I plan to add a side vegetable (today it’s the last of the carrots) each day. Tomorrow I may add sliced tomatoes because they are ripe and I don’t want to lose them.

Day #1 wasn’t challenging as I had stocked up Tuesday with a pickup order from Walmart.Today I found myself with aging produce and a pound of ground turkey nearing its sell-by date.
Lunch is typically our main meal, so today I used these items to make two large servings of fiesta salad. It may contain Fritos chips, but it’s surprisingly healthful.
Basically a salad of chopped lettuce, tomatoes, onions, and (optional) cilantro, the only cooking was browning the ground turkey. The cheese sauce was cheddar cheese soup heated in the microwave oven, thinned with 1/4 cup milk.
According to my recipe builder, we each ate 556 calories, including 57 g. protein and 18 g. fat. and 6.2 g fiber. It’s a fun dish as well as a good use-up of produce.
It’s early in the month, so we’ll see how the thirty-day challenge progresses. So how’s your quarantine going?
