Salmon Croquettes remind me of home, childhood and my mama.

I’ve tried to duplicate my mom’s croquettes, but admittedly they weren’t like hers. I think, finally, this version is pretty close. Tasty!

Heres what you’ll need.

  • 14.5 oz canned salmon (including liquid)
  • 1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon corn meal
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1 green onion (white snd green) cut in small pieces
  • 3 tablespoons real mayonnaise
  • Vegetable oil

In a mixing bowl use a fork to break up the salmon into tiny pieces. Mix In all other ingredient’s except oil with salmon. Mix well.

In a cast iron skillet heat oil on medium high heat. Spoon salmon mix one large serving spoon at a time into oil. Use the back of the spoon to spread and form patties. Cook until browned on bottom. Carefully turn each patty over to brown opposite side.

Remove to a paper towel.


  • Dont cook on a too high heat. Browning slowly will make a nicer croquette that is tender but crispy on edges.
