Simple Salmon Croquettes

A can of salmon, some bread crumbs, and a little oil make for a simple dinner croquettes. These are also good to serve cold the next day. Remember, use home made bread crumbs, or Japanese panko breadcrumbs when possible because most commercial bread crumb companies put way too much sodium in their crumbs! And you don’t need that extra salt. Another alternative to commercial bread crumbs, pick up a bag of crumbs from your local bakery.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 1 (6 ounce) can salmon, drained and flaked
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped celery
  • 1/4 cup sliced green onion
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill weed
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/3 cup fine bread crumbs
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil

In a medium bowl, mix together the salmon, egg, celery, green onion, dill, and garlic powder. Form the mixture into golf ball sized balls, and roll in bread crumbs to coat.

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Flatten the balls slightly, and fry for about 10 minutes, turning as needed, until golden brown. Serve with a fine Ale.
