Recipe by Lynn S.

Moist in the middle, crispy on the outside... simply delicious. My MIL (Ruth) made this for my husband when he was younger; he loved them then and is equally as fond of them now. My son even loves them and he hates fish. This recipe is a great way for my family to get their Omega 3 fatty acids and a nice way to incorporate fish into my weekly menu without a lot of complaints : )

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 (14 3/4 ounce) cans red salmon, drained and cleaned (I use Bumble Bee Alaska Sockeye Red Salmon)
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 onion, grated
  • 34 cup seasoned bread crumbs
  • breadcrumbs (for dredging)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • oil (for frying)


  1. Mix salmon, egg, breadcrumbs and lemon juice until well blended.
  2. Form croquettes, dip into the extra bread crumbs
  3. Fry croquettes until golden brown on each side.
  4. Optional: I like to make a dipping sauce with Mayonaise, Chili Garlic Sauce and Ketchup.
