Salmon Croquette Recipe

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.

Red “Hold the Chicken” Chili Recipe

Last week I made Red “Hold the Chicken” Chili in my IG Story and the meal got such a great response. It’s an easy 30 minute vegetarian meal that uses just a few ingredients. You won’t miss the meat in this recipe at all. Trust me.

30 minute chili

To make this easy 30 minute chili you’ll need the following ingredients:

1 Can Chunky Rotel

2 Cans Northern White Beans

2 Cans Pinto Beans

1 Can Kidney Beans

Chicken Broth

1 teaspoon oregano

1 teaspoon cayenne pepper

2 teaspoons ground cumin

Half a white onion, chopped

2 cloves of garlic, minced

Juice from half a lime

Kosher salt to taste


Red “Hold the chicken” Chili-2


Drain and rinse beans. Combine all ingredients except the salt. Use as much chicken broth as you’d like. I like my chili a bit brothy (too much broth will turn the chili into soup which isn’t a big deal if you want soup) so I normally use an entire box of broth. Bring all the ingredients to a boil and let simmer for 30 minutes. Salt your chili to your satisfaction and dinner is done! Consider topping your chili with fresh salsa, corn and avocado. You could also add fresh jalapeños to take the heat level up a little. 

I hope you enjoy this super quick and easy family dinner.
