Salmon croquettes are one of my family’s favorites. We love them for breakfast and dinner. They go well with just about everything and they are easy to make. Salmon croquettes also make a great burger if paired with a yummy sauce. I grew up eating these delicious patties and I’m so glad my family loves them just as much as I do.
What I love most about making these is that the ingredients for these are very pantry staple friendly. I always tend to have the ingredients for these in the house so whenever my time is low or someone forgets to defrost the chicken these are my go-to.
Serve them with polenta or grits, spinach and eggs or with homes fries as a burger. You simply can not go wrong with a salmon croquette.
So let’s get cooking…
To make salmon croquettes you’ll need:
2 cans of pink salmon, drained, deboned and flaked
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 an onion, finely chopped
5 tablespoons of flour or seafood breading
Old Bay Seafood Seasoning to taste (I have also used Tony Chachers and it’s just as good)
Fresh or dried parsley
Now for the directions…
Combine all ingredients and form patties. Heat olive oil in a skillet on medium low. When oil is hot cook patties in batches based on the size of your skillet. Do not overcrowd your pan, sis. Everyone likes a little space to become who they were meant to be.
I usually get about seven large patties from two cans. I have also served these with sautéed veggies and rice for a date night meal. Pair them with your wine of choice and you’ve got a restaurant quality meal on your hands.
