4 SERVING
Ingredients:
  • 2 1/2 cup Flaked cooked salmon (equals 1.3# raw approx.) or 14.75 oz. can pink salmon, bones removed
  • 1 Large Egg whisked
  • 2 Cloves Garlic minced
  • 1 cup Panko bread crumbs
  • 2 tbsp. Fresh chives minced
  • 2 tbsp. Red bell pepper minced
  • 2 tbsp. Mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp. Fresh parsley minced
  • 1 tbsp. Creamy Dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp. Fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. Fresh lemon zest
  • 1/4 tsp. Kosher salt (plus extra if you are cooking the salmon)
  • 1/4 tsp. Black pepper (plus extra if you are cooking the salmon)
  • 2 tbsp. Olive oil divided (plus extra if you are cooking the salmon)
  • Extra sour cream topped with extra chopped chives
  • Optional to help keep the patties intact: ½ tbsp of potato starch or corn starch can be used
Directions:
1
To cook the salmon if needed: coat the salmon with salt and pepper on both sides to taste and drizzle a little olive oil. Heat up a pan on medium heat and once hot lay gently the salmon cooking until brown on each side (approx. 4 to 5 minutes per side). If it does not flake yet (crumble nicely) then you can cook it a few more minutes in the oven on parchment paper on the oven tray, or directly put the pan in the oven if the pan is oven-proof.
2
In a large bowl add salmon (cooled), egg, garlic, panko, chives, red bell pepper, mayonnaise, parsley, mustard, lemon juice, lemon zest, kosher salt, and black pepper (and starch if using).
3
Mix to combine and form into 9 patties. Use a slightly heaping 1/4 cup measuring cup to form the patties. Press them well so they do not fall apart.
4
Pan-fried version: 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. NOTE: The patties won’t hold together as tight as a hamburger so be gentle when putting them into the oil.
5
Baked version: Preheat the oven to 425°F and line a pan with parchment paper. Bake salmon croquettes for 13-15 minutes or until browned.
6
Optional: Serve the sour cream in a small bowl topped with chopped chives along with the croquettes.
