  8. Season with a pinch of salt, pepper and lemon juice to taste.
  9. Add the meat to the this mixture and mix well.
  10. Stir until it is well mixed and then turn off the heat.
  11. Remove from the pot, place in a bowl and let cool.
  12. When the mixture has cooled, mold croquettes out of it and place on a plate previously coated with flour.
  13. Coat the croquettes with the beaten eggs and then coat them in the breadcrumbs.
  14. Now fry the croquettes one by one in a deep frying pan over high heat in the oil.
  15. Once golden, remove them with a slotted spoon and place them on a plate with paper towels.
  16. Let them cool for a minute and once you are done, cut a lime into quarters to serve on a platter.
