Krokechi or croquettes are snack items that you will come across in many places in Aruba. They are a typical Dutch snack and have several variations. We've chosen the more typical Aruban variant. If a fishy taste is not your favorite you could substitute the boiled shrimp with roasted veal, for example, but it could be any other type of meat that you particularly like.
