My mom made the best salmon croquettes when we were growing up. She had a limited budget with three teenagers who loved her home cooking. These croquettes are good hot or when served cold on a sandwich. You can also made these into little balls when prepping for appetizers and serve with tartar sauce.

How to Make Salmon Croquettes

Step-by-Step

  1. Drain salmon and discard bones. In a large bowl, mix in all ingredients except oil for frying. Form into patties on wax paper.

    Heat a large skillet with enough oil to cover half the pattie. Cook each side until golden brown. Remove from heat. Serve with tartar sauce.
  2. Tartar Sauce: Mix all ingredients together well and serve. Add more horseradish sauce if you prefer (this is bottled horseradish sauce and NOT creamy horseradish).
