Hey y’all. I came to share a family favorite of ours with you. We actually probably have it almost once a week, which, considering all of our family favorites, says a lot. We LOVE salmon croquettes. We eat salmon in like every form, but this is probably one of our favorites. We like to experiment with several salmon recipes, and this is just one of the many ways to cook it. Usually, we do salmon and biscuits, but this time, we did bagels, yogurt, and peaches. It was an delicious combo.
We enjoy salmon croquettes for breakfast, but I know that several families do it for lunch and dinner. So keep in mind that this is a meal that you can enjoy at any time. Also, feel free to stick it in a bun! It’s a healthy substitute for hamburgers, and in my opinion, it’s just as delicious. Also keep in mind that seasoning wise, everyone has their own preferences. My dad likes croquettes loaded with flavor, whereas my grandmother likes the simple taste of the salmon with fewer seasonings. So, to each his own. Experiment with this recipe and find your perfect balance of seasoning.
I started with two cans off salmon. I drained the liquid off, took out the bones, and flaked it. Then, I dropped in two eggs, half a cup of cornmeal, half a cup of flour, half a cup of diced onion, a teaspoon of garlic powder, a three eighth cup of mayonnaise, sprinkled in salt and pepper and mixed it well. Then, I took my salmon mixture, and molded it into 13 balls. (How many you have all depends on the size you want them to be.)
Then, I sprayed my skillet, and put in about a tablespoon of olive oil. You don’t want too much oil so pay attention to the size of your skillet compared to mine, and you can judge how much oil you’ll need. Mine was very large. I let my oil warm up at medium-low heat, and when that got hot, I carefully placed some of my croquettes into the pan, and flattened them to about half an inch in height. I wasn’t able to place all of my croquettes into the pan, which is totally fine. But do add a little more oil for the next batch. Make sure that when you place them in, you still have room to flip them when the time comes. What I like to do is take a teensy bit of salmon mixture, and pop it in the pan to taste and see if I need any more seasonings. If you do, feel free to just sprinkle the needed seasoning on top of the croquettes.
I waited for my salmon to get a nice, golden bottom, and then I flipped them. When the other side is done, so are you! Really easy, really pretty, really delicious croquettes that take barely any time at all.
