Salmon Croquettes

Happy Saturday Lovelies,

I thought this post would be something simple and inexpensive.  I grew up eating this as a child and back then I would only eat it with ketchup and pork n beans now Ive grown to appreciate what I thought was poor people's food.  These salmon croquettes or salmon patties as friends call them are wonderful and they are very quick to prepare!

I hope you all enjoy them!



1 can of Pink Salmon (very inexpensive like 1.49/can)
1 small onion diced (add as much as you like)
1 large egg
1 tablespoon of flour (for binding)
Cooking Oil (I prefer Canola)


When you open the Pink Salmon there is a bone in it so its best to pour it in a bowl and remove the bones gently because they are softened so you actually don't have to remove them.  ( I remove them because I despise the texture) Once removed crumble salmon with hands and add diced onion, egg, and flour.(you also may want to add some salt & pepper here) Egg is going to make salmon mixture wet but flour is added to bind together so it isn't too wet.  It should be good enough to make a "pattie" about the size of a hamburger or smaller.
Heat oil in a shallow frying pan about 1/2 inch or less of oil in the pan. (not too much because you are pan frying them not deep frying) Oil should be relatively hot but not too hot when frying because you don't want them to burn.  Cook until brown and then flip. (about 2-3 min)

Serve Hot or Room Temp with White/Yellow rice and Baked Beans.
