    coconutty's Note:

    I have been making some version of this dish forever. This is the current one. In the past I have made these with various breading ingredients: matzo meal, breadcrumbs or wheat germ. Now that I am trying to avoid grains, I use hazelnut meal. The coconut oil I use for this is the expeller-pressed version, available from

    1. 1
      Start heating the oil in a large skillet (coconut oil must be kept on a low to medium heat and watched carefully to avoid smoking).
    2. 2
      Drain salmon (leave a little moisture in the salmon so the croquettes won't be too dry).
    3. 3
      Remove skin and bones if desired, or mash the salmon (with the skin and bones intact) in a small mixing bowl.
    4. 4
      Add egg; mix well.
    5. 5
      Add onion flakes (or onion powder) to taste, oregano and pepper. Mix well.
    6. 6
      If salmon looks too soft and liquidy, add a little hazelnut meal.
    7. 7
      Form into small balls and roll in hazelnut meal.
    8. 8
      Flatten each patty slightly and place into skillet.
    9. 9
      Saute until browned on both sides.
    10. 10
      Remove from skillet and drain on paper towels.
    11. 11
      I like to add a bit of celtic salt on top of each patty once they are cooked and drizzle lime juice over each patty.
    12. 12
      Alternatively, I omit the salt and lime juice and top each patty with some of my Coconut Ginger Soy Sauce (Coconut Ginger Soy Sauce).

      Very tasty croquettes! I loved that there were no grains in this recipe, and salmon covered in coarsely ground hazelnuts is always lovely. I used a mortar and pestle to grind the hazelnuts by hand, so mine were more coarse than meal, which was great for the outer coating, but I'd recommend a finer grind for making the patties themselves as my mixture was quite wet, and I had a bit of trouble convincing the patties to hold together. Thanks coconutty! Made for PAC Fall 2009.
