Calabria Cucina’s Pork and N’duja Croquette
Ingredients Serves 6
- Half of one Red Onion; finely diced
- 1kg of Mashed Potatoes
- 400g of Braised Pork Shoulder
- 100g N’duja ‘the wonder ingredient’ (available at Delicibo Chesterfield)
- Pinch of Freshly Chopped Parsley
- Salt to taste
- 3 Eggs
Firstly, pre-heat your oven to 180C or Gas Mark 5.
Sweat off the red onion in some olive oil in a pan, then take the pan off the heat and drain away the oil.
In a bowl mix together the mash, pork, n’duja, parsley, and onion then season to taste.
Shape the mix into six balls and flatten slightly to a cake/croquette shape. Then, chill the croquettes in the fridge until firmed up.
Using three bowls – place flour in one bowl, whisk three eggs into a second bowl, and breadcrumbs in a third.
Taking one croquette at a time, place the croquette into each bowl to coat in each ingredient; firstly the four, then the egg, and finally the breadcrumbs.
Shallow fry the finished croquettes in olive oil until golden, then place in the preheated oven for 15 minutes. Finally, serve hot and enjoy!
