Crispy Sardine Croquetts- 香脆沙丁鱼可乐饼

Its tastes so good. The outside is crispy and inside is moist and soft. This croquetts  is suitable for tea-time and even dinner time served on the table with chilli sauce or mayonnaise.


3 medium sized potatoes
1 large onion, peeled and chopped
350 g sardine (in tomato sauce, drained)
salt and pepper to taste
1 tablespoon of lime juice

1 egg, lightly beaten
2 cups breadcrumbs
Oil for deep-frying

1)  Boil potatoes. Peel skin off and mash. Heat 1 tablespoon oil, stir-fry onion until fragrant, then add sardines.  Mix in mashed potatoes.  Add salt and pepper to taste. Remove from heat. Allow to cool slightly.

2)  Add lime juice to the sardine mixture. Shape the sardine mixture into oval or round shapes.

3)  Coat with egg, then breadcrumbs.  Place on a tray and chill in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.

4)  Heat oil in a pan or wok until hot. Deep-fry croquetts until golden brown and crispy.  Drain, and serve with your desired sauce.


  1. Never think that having such great combination in making croquetts. Great snack! I would like to serve with burger buns too.

  2. Why add lime juice to the sardine mixture? Do we need to add some corn flour to the mixture so that it's easier to make into shape? Thanks!
