Salmon croquettes It sounds so elegant, but actually, they are super easy to make!

Large chunks of fresh salmon are combined with breadcrumbs, herbs, and seasonings and made into patties. They can be baked or fried.

Deliciously crispy on the outside and tasty on the inside, they serve as a starter or as a light meal with a salad.

What are salmon croquettes?

Croquettes are fried patties (or rolls) containing breadcrumbs and meat / fish. They are usually fried until crispy on the outside (I also include baking instructions) and make an excellent appetizer or light dish served with a lemon salad.

There is little difference between salmon patties and croquettes, although I personally keep the patties more simplistic.

Ingredients / Variations

SALMON: For best results, use fresh flaked salmon meat. Canned salmon will serve if necessary. When making salmon, add a little more to your recipe because it's great with last night's grilled salmon leftovers.

EGGS / BLOWJOB: Eggs and breadcrumbs help tie this recipe together (so the kibbles don't fall apart). You should still gently press the patties when you form them. I use panko breadcrumbs in this recipe, but you can use regular breadcrumbs if that's what you have on hand. If you use regular breadcrumbs, start with a couple of tablespoons less, as they have a finer texture. You can add more as needed.

FLAVORS:Most of the remaining ingredients are added for flavor. You can use whatever you have on hand or your favorite flavors. Fresh herbs are great in this recipe.

How to cook salmon croquettes

Fry: Fry each croquette on both sides until golden and crisp, about 5 minutes per side. Drain on paper towels and serve.

To bake: Place the kibble evenly on the baking sheet and bake until golden brown.

Whether baked or fried, these delicious salmon cakes are always delicious!
