savory salmon croquettes

Wild salmon has been a decent price in grocery stores lately, so I thought I’d post this recipe (that our family loves) for salmon croquettes.  They’re fantastic served with tartar sauce, mango chutney, corn relish, or just as is!  I typically use canned wild salmon for this recipe, but cooked-and-flaked fresh salmon works just as well.

Salmon Croquettes

14 – 18 oz canned salmon (depending on can sizes) or 1 1/2 – 2 c. flaked fresh salmon

1 c. panko bread crumbs

2 eggs, lightly beaten

1/4 c. fresh chopped parsley or cilantro

1/4 c. finely diced onion

1/2 tsp. paprika

1/4 tsp. garlic powder

1/4 tsp. salt

Oil +  butter for frying


1/4 c. panko bread crumbs

1/4 c. cornmeal

1/4 tsp. salt

In a large mixing bowl, combine salmon, panko crumbs, eggs, parsley, onion, and spices.  Mix until combined, then form into 10-12 croquettes.  Combine coating ingredients on a plate or shallow bowl.

Heat enough oil to coat the bottom of a large skillet over medium heat.  Press both sides of the croquettes into the coating mixture.  Just before frying, add a few tablespoons of butter.  When butter is melted, place croquettes in pan.  Fry 3-5 minutes on each side, or until golden brown.

Serve with the sauce or topping of your choice, and enjoy!
