The Art of Crafting Salmon Croquettes
Before we get our hands dirty in the kitchen, let's take a moment to appreciate the lineup of ingredients that will transform into the mouthwatering salmon croquettes:
2 cups of cooked salmon, flaked
1/4 cup of breadcrumbs
1/4 cup of finely chopped onion
1/4 cup of finely chopped bell pepper
2 tablespoons of mayonnaise
2 tablespoons of chopped fresh parsley
1 teaspoon of Dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon of Old Bay seasoning
1/4 teaspoon of garlic powder
Salt and pepper to taste
2 tablespoons of olive oil
In a large mixing bowl, combine the cooked salmon, breadcrumbs, chopped onion, chopped bell pepper, mayonnaise, egg, chopped parsley, Dijon mustard, Old Bay seasoning, garlic powder, salt, and pepper.
Gently mix the ingredients until well combined. The goal is to achieve a cohesive mixture without overworking it.
Shape the mixture into compact patties of your preferred size. Place the patties on a plate and refrigerate for about 20-30 minutes. Chilling them helps the patties hold their shape during cooking.
Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. The oil should be hot enough to sizzle when you add the patties.
Carefully place the salmon croquettes in the skillet and cook for approximately 3-4 minutes on each side, or until they are golden brown and crispy.
Once cooked, transfer the croquettes to a plate lined with paper towels to blot excess oil.
Serve the salmon croquettes while they're still warm, perhaps with a dollop of tartar sauce or a squeeze of lemon for that extra zing.
1. Can I use canned salmon for this recipe?
Absolutely! Canned salmon works wonderfully for this recipe. Just ensure you drain and flake the canned salmon before incorporating it into the mixture. It's a convenient option that doesn't compromise on taste.
2. Can I make the mixture ahead of time?
Of course! You can prepare the mixture ahead of time and shape the patties when you're ready to cook. This can be a time-saver, especially for busy weeknights or when hosting gatherings.

Growing up in Southern California as part of a family of fishmongers, the fusion of my Japanese heritage and my mother's Spanish roots created a rich tapestry of flavors in our household. While seafood was our specialty, Japanese wagyu held a special place in our hearts. Known for its marbling and unparalleled tenderness, Japanese Wagyu is a prized Japanese delicacy. The pairing of Japanese wagyu with ramen brought it to a whole new level.
