Potato Croquettes with Seafood and Kimchi
This recipe uses rice flour for everything, from bread crumbs to the coating flour and to the filling. Enjoy a variety of textures in kimchi and seafood, including octopus and scallops!
White sauce can be made very easily with rice flour. Combine milk and the rice flour before applying heat to avoid making a lumpy sauce. Use up to 1 part rice flour to every 10 parts milk.
All rice flour is naturally gluten-free. Make this dish completely gluten-free by using gluten-free substitutes for other ingredients as needed.

For the sauce
Heat the butter over medium high heat in a saucepan. When hot, stir in the rice flour. Gradually add the milk. Simmer until the sauce thickens. Add soy sauce. When fragrant, turn off the heat.
In a skillet over medium heat, sauté the seafood, then add kimchi. Combine the white sauce into the seafood mixture. Set aside to cool.
Using a spoon, scoop a golf ball sized portion of the mashed potatoes. Flatten it and place a spoonful of the seafood mixture in the center. Wrap it to form an oval shape. Dust with rice flour, dredge into the egg, and coat with the bread crumbs.
