Salmon Croquettes

1 can salmon
3 tablespoons breadcrumbs
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/4 cup grated onion
2 garlic cloves
2 tablespoons almonds
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Extra-virgin olive oil

In a food processor, combine with the breadcrumbs, egg, onions, garlic, and almonds. Blend until mixture is ground. Add salmon and blend until the mixture forms a thick paste. Lightly salt and pepper. Using a tablespoon measurement, scoop heaping tablespoons of the salmon mixture and roll between your palms to form round-shaped croquettes. Coat skillet with the olive oil. Heat the oil over medium-high heat. Place salmon croquettes in skillet and cook until they are a light golden brown. Season croquettes with salt and pepper while hot.
