Ashleigh Shanti's Duke’s Salmon Croquettes
Chef Ashleigh Shanti from the pop up Good Hot Fish in Asheville (opening as a brick-and-mortar in early 2023) shares this recipe for salmon croquettes. Duke’s Mayonnaise is her key ingredient to the croquettes’ tangy flavor and creamy interior surrounded by a crackling outer shell. She argues that there’s Duke’s and then there’s other mayonnaises. “In the South, Duke’s can be compared to salt; it enhances the flavor,” she says. “It’s got that zest and tang.” Shanti herself uses this recipe from her mother for a post-Thanksgiving or Christmas brunch.
