1. Hard-boil the eggs. Boil the broccoli in salted water (not listed). Cut the potatoes into equal-sized pieces, rinse, lightly submerge in water, and boil until soft. Tip: Check to see if they're done by poking with a toothpick.
2. Drain excess water once the potatoes have boiled, evaporate the remaining water in a pot, turn off the heat, and mash.
3. Separate the yolks from the eggs, lightly beat, and add the yolks to the potatoes from the previous step (set it all without mixing for the moment). Coarsely mince the egg whites, boiled shrimp and broccoli. Tip: The color and texture of the croquettes will improve if you use 50 g stems and florets each.
4. Saute the finely chopped onions in butter, add the salt once translucent (about 1/3 teaspoon), and season with coarsely ground black pepper.
5. Thoroughly mix the potatoes from Step 2 together with the minced ingredients from Step 3, the onions from Step 4, and the mayonnaise. Flatten out, and divide it into 8 equal portions.
6. Shape the portions from step 5 into ovals, and bread with flour, beaten egg, milk, panko in that order.
7. Fry in 170°C oil until they turn crispy and golden brown.
8. Drain the oil, arrange on plates with your favorite vegetables, and serve.

Story Behind this Recipe

This year Valentines Day falls on a weekday, and my boyfriend hates chocolates, and I was at a loss for what to do... So I figured, why not make croquettes?! lol. It took a lot of effort to make fried food on a weekday, but I gave it my all! My boyfriend was happy with the end result These croquettes were made with spring in mind. I was actually going to make them with broccolini, but they were sold out that day, so I used broccoli instead...
