Salmon Croquettes with Charred Veggie Rice

I have made these Salmon Croquettes several times and we really like them. They would be great with a side salad or Charred Veggie Rice. I think I got both these recipes from Cooking Light.

The croquettes have capers in the sauce. I haven't tried leaving them out but you could probably do that if you don't like them. They really give the sauce a kick. I'd chop them up really well so I don't get a big bite of one.

Salmon Croquettes

1/4 cup organic canola mayonnaise (such as Spectrum), divided
4 teaspoons fresh lemon juice, divided
2 1/2 teaspoons Dijon mustard, divided
1/4 cup finely chopped green onions
2 tablespoons minced red bell pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper
2 (6-ounce) packages skinless, boneless pink salmon
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 cup panko (Japanese breadcrumbs)
1 tablespoon canola oil
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
1 teaspoon finely chopped capers
1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
1/8 teaspoon salt

Combine 2 tablespoons mayonnaise, 1 tablespoon juice, 1 1/2 teaspoons mustard, and next 7 ingredients (through egg), stirring well. Add panko; toss. Shape mixture into 8 (3-inch) patties.

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add patties; cook 5 minutes on each side or until browned.

Combine remaining mayonnaise, juice, and mustard with parsley, capers, garlic, and salt, stirring well.

salt, to taste

Cook rice according to package directions, omitting salt and fat. Heat oil in a large cast iron pan over medium-high heat. Add corn and zucchini to pan; saute 3 minutes or until vegetables are charred. Stir in tomatoes and green onions; saute 1 minute or until tomatoes almost wilt. Combine veggies, rice and salt.
