  1. Make potato croquette mixture

    Form by hand into oval-shaped lightly flattened pieces. Dredge pieces in flour, dip in egg then dredge in crumbs.

  3. Fry

    Fry in hot oil until golden. Serve with mayonnaise and ketchup mixture as a dipping sauce.

    Tip: For low-fat croquettes, cook them in an air-fryer for 10-12minutes or in an oven toaster for 15 to 20
    minutes.

  4. For aglio olio, make pasta

    Heat water and cook spaghetti according to package instructions. While the pasta is cooking, drain oil from the sardine can and heat.

  5. Saute aromatics

    Sauté the garlic in the sardine oil until slightly brown. This should take about 4 minutes.

    Add the rest of the 555 Fried Sardines Hot & Spicy and lemon juice to the pot. Simmer for 1 minute.

  7. Add pasta

    Add the cooked spaghetti to the pot and about half the lemon zest. Let it sauté for 1 minute. Turn off the heat, add the remaining zest, and put on a plate. Serve hot.

    Optional: add freshly chopped parsley and parmesan before serving.
