  1. Melt butter in medium pan; add flour. Stir over medium heat 1 minute; blend in combined milk and reserved salmon juice. Stir over medium heat until mixture boils and thickens. Reduce heat; simmer 3 minutes. Mixture will be thick.

  2. Remove skin and bones from salmon and flake with a fork. Add salmon, parsley, spring onions, lemon juice, salt and pepper to flour mixture; stir to combine. Spread mixture onto a shallow tray, cover and refrigerate until firm.

  3. Place flour onto a flat dish, eggs in a shallow dish and breadcrumbs onto a flat dish. Drop heaped tablespoons of mixture onto flour, mould into croquette shapes. Dip in egg; coat with the breadcrumbs. Refrigerate again for at least 1 hour.

  4. Heat oil in a deep, heavy-based pan to moderately hot. Lower a few croquettes into hot oil using tongs or a slotted spoon. Cook 3-4 minutes or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels; keep warm while cooking remainder. Serve with lime wedges and mango chutney.
