Salmon Croquette Recipe

The weather just made a shift and it has been pretty cold and rainy at our house.  I actually have been ready for the weather to cool down a bit and to be able to cozy up and wear my fall sweaters.  Whenever it is rainy or cloudy outside,  I am not able to really work or take pictures of food for the blog.  This gives me a chance to have a meal ready for the family every night despite how busy things get.  Since I am a salmon lover, I LOVE salmon croquettes.  The best part about these delicious croquettes is that my kids will eat them and not even realize that they are salmon.  They are fast and easy and such a win at our house!

  1. Hi Alyssa! First of all, I LOVE your recipes. I have tried many of them and those are so simple and delicious! Here is my question: my husband does not like salmon, can i replace the salmon for tuna for the salmon croquettes? Any suggestion is more than welcome. Thank you!

    1. Hi Valeria,
      In answer to your question…..I have made these with tuna as well as with salmon & they both turned out great. Just be sure to measure the equal amount of tuna as the can of salmon. I flaked my tuna a bit tho. Also – (just my preference) I did not add the chopped green & red peppers, but I did add some dried celery flakes. Either way is just delicious!

  2. Your recipes on salmon Croquettes look mighty good. I would love to print them. I want to cook them in a Nuwave air cooker with a light spray of Olive oil. Will let you know how they turn out.
    THANKS A MILLION. RW

  3. Just to be clear….is this recipe calling for a 3 to 5 ounce can OR (3) 5 ounce cans….so 15 ounces of salmon? Just want to make sure I get it right.

    1. I use about 1 tablespoon of oil or even less. Just enough to cover the bottom of a pan and to help the croquettes to not stick to the pan. It also helps slightly crisping up the outside.
      To bake them you will heat the oven to 350* and bake for about 10-12 minutes.

  4. Made them tonight, love love love, didn’t have Panko, so whizzed up rolled oats, and used dried coriander instead of fresh… turned out delicious…

    Made these for dinner tonight with a side salad. My husband and I really enjoyed them!
    Definitely will make them again. I’m sure they will become one of our favourites and will get into our dinner menu rotation!! Thanks for sharing!!

    I love all of your recipes!!! Every time I search something to make, your recipe pops up and they are always delicious. What would be a good sauce with these? I always need some type of sauce.

    Thank you!

    This is the best salmon croquette recipe! I eliminated the garlic just because I don’t like it, and I don’t think the recipe needs garlic anyway and used only 1/2 T of worcestershire sauce because it can be a bit overpowering. Otherwise, really delicious and easy!
