Salmon Croquettes or Salmon Patties - Whatever You Want to Call Them

My kids love salmon croquettes, although they are called salmon patties around our house.  I don't mind making them either because they are easy to make.  We don't eat them a lot but when we do they are always received with a warm welcome.


Ingredients:

2 cans of salmon

2 cups bread crumbs

3 eggs

Directions:



1.  Prepare your bread crumbs.  I use a food processor and about 4-5 slices of bread to make 2 cups.



2.  After opening the cans of salmon, drain the juice and remove the black skin (or as much of it as you can).  Mix it with the 3 eggs and bread crumbs.  If mixture is too soggy or too dry you can add in more eggs or bread crumbs.  

 

3.  Make patties out of the salmon mixture. 

4.  Heat about 3 inches of canola oil in a skillet.  Once oil is heated, fry salmon patties until they are golden brown on each side.

My husband loves these with white gravy over them but they are also good just the way they are.
