Salmon Croquettes Recipe


  • 2 ½ cups flaked salmon or 14.75 ounce can pink salmon, bones removed
  • 1 large egg whisked
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons fresh chives minced
  • 2 tablespoons red bell pepper minced
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley minced
  • 1 tablespoon creamy Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon zest
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil divided


  1. In a large bowl add salmon, egg, garlic, panko, chives, red bell pepper, mayonnaise, parsley, mustard, lemon juice, lemon zest, kosher salt, black pepper and 1 tablespoon of the olive oil.
  2. Mix to combine and form into 9 patties. I use a slightly heaping 1/4 cup measuring cup to form the patties. Press them well so they do not fall apart.
To Fry
  1. Add olive oil to a 12-inch skillet and set over medium-high heat. Once hot, cook for about 5 minutes per side or until it’s golden brown on both sides.
To Bake
  1. Preheat oven to 425°F and line a pan with parchment paper.
  2. Bake salmon croquettes 13-15 minutes or until browned.
