Half croquette, half tiger. Discover the winning combination of flavours and textures that this simple recipe will bring to your table.
All things true, rather than just being another croquette, this recipe sits somewhere in the middle of a traditional croqueta and the popular tigre (Spanish for tiger). The latter is one of the most extended tapas and consists of a mussel with bechamel sauce which is served breadcrumbed on the mussel shell itself.
However, what makes this croquette special is not only the filling but the super crispy and tasty maize-based crumb, which offers the perfect companion, both in taste and texture, to the creamy mussel-enriched bechamel.
