Salmon Croquettes – pan fried, protein-packed, breadcrumbed rolls made with  salmon and aromatics. It makes for  a quick and tasty appetizer , breakfast or dinner fix. Very budget-friendly and simple to make!

Depending on your family history, these Salmon Croquettes are also referred to as salmon cakes or salmon patties. But one thing is for sure, this is a tasty and easy recipe that saves you not just time, but also money.

This recipe is a Southern favorite. It is often served at home and even in bars and restaurants. What makes this dish a surefire hit is that is easy to assemble and very budget-friendly. You’ll find that it only calls for a couple of simple ingredients that are probably sitting right in your pantry now.

Aside from that, these croquettes here are quite tasty, too – inside and out. It’s packed (but not overwhelming) with onions, garlic and savory herb flavor which is pretty basic yet indulgent. 

The use of minced garlic for this recipe allows the garlicky flavor to disperse easily and incorporate well into the salmon mixture.

To amped the flavor, I used creole seasoning – yes , I just can’t live without  it . Makes everything tastes better!  To coat the salmon mixture I used panko bread crumbs – any would do just fine. 

But if you don’t have easy access to it, you can simply make your own homemade seasoned breadcrumb with stale white or wheat bread  Or you can get fancy by adding a little more seasonings depending on your preference.

You can shape them into patties or balls but I do prefer them in oval-shaped as they look pretty convenient to eat with dippings and sauces during parties and game days.

Looking for some serving suggestions for these croquettes as an everyday family meal? I got your back. You may serve this salmon croquettes with mashed potatoes, roasted or steamed veggies, fresh salad or enjoy it on its own.

 You may want to restrain yourself eating the whole batch as they are simply addictive. Happy eating!

 

Tips and Notes:

  1. You may dip in lightly beaten eggs  before coating in bread crumbs , for extra crispness.  
  2. If you’re not a fan of anything canned, you may poach a one-pound salmon fillet, simmer in a lightly seasoned liquid, flake it once cooked and proceed to the next step.
  3. After mixing the whole ingredients, let it sit for 15 minutes in the fridge to firm up before you start rolling them.
  4. If planning on panfrying then shape into patties- it cooks faster .
