Until I met my husband I had never had salmon croquettes. It was at my mother-in-laws that I first had them and they had been a staple in their house growing up, so of course I had to get the recipe. And since I knew absolutely nothing about cooking they became one of the first meals that I learned how to cook. I still make them quite often and actually keep cans of salmon on hand for a quick meal.
This recipe was originally posted on the blog on August 9, 2010 and can be found here. Lately I have made some changes to the recipe to make it more Trim Healthy Mama friendly but for now I am posting the recipe as written because it is amazing!
2 cans of salmon
2 cups bread crumbs
1. Prepare your bread crumbs. I use a food processor and about 4-5 slices of bread to make two cups. You can also use store bought bread crumbs.
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 three eggs and bread crumbs. If mixture is too soggy or too dry add more bread crumbs or eggs as needed.
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 I think they are delicious just the way they are.
