  1. Cook potatoes in large saucepan of boiling salted water until tender, about 15 minutes. Drain. Return to saucepan; mash.

Add 1 whole egg and 1 cup mashed potatoes (reserve any remaining potato for another use); stir to blend well. Cover and refrigerate at least 4 hours and up to 1 day.

Working in batches, add tarama croquettes to skillet and fry until golden brown, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer to paper towels to drain. Transfer croquettes to platter.
