Simple Salmon Croquettes

Easy. Healthy. Easy. Yumm-O.

Add some oil to a pan or skillet and heat over medium or medium high.

Dice up your onions. You don't even have to add onions, but you can, and if you do - dice them puppies up!
Ew, let's ignore the fact that I just used the word, "puppy" in a recipe.

Mmmmm....puppy show. Sorry, I said, "puppy" again, but don't be concerned that it looks like dog food. While I'm sure a dog would gladly eat this, it's much more tasty than dog food; I promise!

Add the breadcrumbs.

And an egg.This is just one egg, but it looks like one of those twin yolks. Have you ever seen one of those? Apparently the twins are frequent with young hens. Who knows; they still look mutant to me. Umm...anyway, this wasn't one of them.

Grab a fork and get to mashing!

Now grab a spoon (we are grabby today, aren't we!) and press the mixture onto it. I use a spoon to make sure they are at least close to the same size and will cook all at once. Just make sure you press it all together so it doesn't all come apart. You can even flatten them more than I have.

They're not perfectly shaped, but that's just fine. And you can make them larger if you'd like. The spoon is really just give me a nice surface to press the mixture up against.

Sprinkle with some dill if you have it. If not, this recipe is RUINED. Just kidding, you'll survive and so will the croquettes.

Add your puppy show to the oil. As you can see, I like a lot of dill on these things!

After a few minutes, flip them over. This time I didn't flatten mine out, so they look more like chicken nuggets. It's not a bad thing either way, I just like to rotate on these things.

Eat and enjoy!


  • aprox. 5 ounces salmon (either fresh, canned, or in a little packet)

  • 1 egg

  • 1/4 C bread crumbs

  • 1/4 onion, diced (optional)

  • oil (enough to coat bottom of pan - canola or olive preferably)

  1. Heat oil over medium/medium high.
  2. Meanwhile, dice onion and add to a bowl.
  3. Add salmon to diced onion.
  4. Add egg and bread crumbs to bowl.
  5. Press mixture into a spoon to create little croquettes.
  6. Sprinkle with dill (optional)
  7. Add croquettes to the hot oil and cook for about 5 minutes on each side, or until cooked through.
  8. Season with salt and pepper.
To make some cheap and healthy breadcrumbs, add some whole grain bread to a food processor. I prefer Ezekiel 4:9, found in the frozen foods section at most grocery stores.
