Salmon croquettes were one of my favorite childhood meals. My grandfather told us grandchildren that the fish bones were prizes. We used to pick them out of the patties and count them to see who found the most. Sometimes I miss being a kid.
One Year Ago: No Egg Turkey Burgers
Salmon Croquettes with Black Pepper and Caper Tartar Sauce
For the Croquettes:
- 1 can salmon, drained
- 1 cup bread crumbs
- 1 egg
- 1 small onion, grated
- 2 tbsp fresh parsley, minced
- Salt and pepper
- Oil for frying
For the Tartar Sauce:
- 1/4 cup mayo
- 1/4 lemon, juiced
- 2 tbsp capers, diced
- 3 garlic cloves, microplaned or finely diced
- Fresh cracked black pepper
In a bowl, combine the salmon, half the bread crumbs, parsley, egg, onion, salt and pepper; mix well. Place other half on bread crumbs on a small plate. Form the salmon into patties. Press into the bread crumbs on each side of the patty. Fry in heated oil until browned on each side. Drain on paper towels.
In a small bowl, combine the tartar sauce ingredients. Chill for about 2 hours to help flavors meld. Serve cold with croquettes. Serves 2.
We used to love these also.
Wow, this looks so good and best yet, simple to make!
What a healthy, quick, easy meal! And delicious too, I bet.
It was very tasty and quick.
Yum! I don’t remember seeing salmon in a can ever.. Is it like the tuna in the can? I need to find it because the recipe sounds delicious!
It is in a full sized can but is similar. You can find it in most chain grocery stores near the tuna. Let me know if you find it and try this recipe.
