    canarygirl's Note:

    This is my mother-in-law's recipe for croquettes. Whenever I make these, my husband can't get enough of them! They can be made with whatever you have on hand, tuna, ham, fish, chicken, or vegetables, spinach, carrots, zucchini--anything you can find in the pantry basically!

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 (14 ounce) can salmon, drained
    • 1 medium onion (grated or whirred in the food processor)
    • salt and pepper
    • 1/4 cup flour
    • 1 1/2 cups milk
    • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder, to taste (about)
    • 1 cup seasoned bread crumbs (about)
    • 2 eggs, beaten
    • 2 tablespoons butter
    • sunflower oil (for frying)


    1. 1
      In a large frypan, heat butter over medium high heat, and sauté onion and garlic powder.
    2. 2
      Add salmon, season with salt and pepper (you may wish to add dill) and heat through.
    3. 3
      Add flour and stir well.
    4. 4
      Add milk gradually stirring constantly until mixture thickens and forms a ball.
    5. 5
      Remove mixture to plate and allow to cool completely (this may be done the day before, and the mixture placed in the refrigerator--it's easier to work with this way).
    6. 6
      Form into oval shaped croquettes, dip in egg and dredge in bread crumbs.
    7. 7
      Deep fry in hot oil, and drain on paper towels.
    8. 8
      This recipe can be made with practically anything, fish, chicken, ham, vegetables (spinach is lovely).

      These are absolutely delicious. I was skeptical that they would hold together after adding that much milk, but they did. Thanks for the recipe - this is one I will add to my repertoire.

      These croquettes were just delicious. Your directions were clear and easy to follow. They fried to a delicate crispness. We dipped them in seafood sauce and had a wonderful meal. Thanks canarygirl.

      I do use about 1 cup of salmon...or 2 cans of tuna when I use tuna. I wonder why they didn't hold together? If ever that happens again, you could add extra flour to try to thicken it up a bit.
