Chef’s Recommendations

We recommend that you try several times if they don’t come out perfectly the first time and take into account the reference with your oil-less fryer. They are not all the same, and the times may vary slightly. Although the croquettes are oil-free, if you want them to turn out more golden brown, you can spray them with an oil spray.
