Salmon Croquettes

One 14-3/4 ounce can pink salmon, drained, deboned and flaked
1 cup evaporated milk, divided
1-1/2 cup corn flake crumbs, divided
1/4 cup dill pickle relish
1/4 cup celery, finely chopped
2 tablespoons onion, finely chopped
Oil for deep fat frying
Tartar sauce:
2/3 cup evaporated milk
1/4 cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons dill pickle relish
1 tablespoon onion, finely chopped

In a medium bowl, combine salmon, 1/2 cup milk, 1/2 cup crumbs, relish, celery and onion. Mix well. With wet hands, shape 1/4 cupfuls into cones. Dip into remaining milk, then into remaining crumbs. Heat oil in a deep fat fryer to 365F. Fry croquettes a few at a time for 2 to 2-1/2 minutes or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Keep warm. Combine tartar sauce ingredients in a medium saucepan. Cook over medium low heat until heated through and slightly thickened. Serve warm with croquettes.

Serves 4-6.
