Salmon Croquettes

salmon croquette recipe card

This recipe is a 10/10 for me. I could have easily eaten the whole tray so, I’m glad I doubled the batch to have some for the next day. I made a tartar sauce to accompany these which was delicious but not necessary. You could have these as an appetizer, entree, on top of a salad or just standing in your kitchen. This recipe will be one I reach for in the future and I hope you try it out.

Salmon Croquettes

Ingredients (Makes around 6 patties, the recipe is easily doubled)
1c Salmon, cooked (I used canned)*
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1/2c bread crumbs
1/2c white sauce
1 egg, beaten
Pinch of salt

White Sauce:
1 Tbsp butter or margarine
2 Tbsp flour
1/2c milk
Pinch of salt


For the white sauce, melt butter in a small pan or pot over medium heat. Once melted add the flour and whisk for 1 minute. Slowly add the milk whisking constantly until all the milk is combined. Keep cooking over medium heat until the sauce is thick. Set aside to cool.

In a large bowl combine the salmon croquette ingredients. You can cover the mix and refrigerate overnight if making this ahead of time. To cook heat up about 1/4 to 1/2 an inch of oil over medium heat in a skillet. Shape into patties that are around 1/2 inch thick. Cook patties until deep golden brown on each side. Drain on paper towels and enjoy. Serve with tartar sauce** if desired.

*This recipe can be easily made with canned tuna
**Tartar sauce I made was:
1c mayo
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 Tbsp minced onion
2 tbsp Sweet relish (regular or sugar free works great)
Salt and pepper
-Mix everything together and adjust to taste, I like a lot of relish so add more or less to your liking
