Salmon Croquettes

1 (14 3/4 oz.) can Pink Salmon
1 egg
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup plain bread crumbs
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspon black pepper

Drain all liquid from salmon. When you remove the salmon from the can, the bones will be pretty much all in one area as in the picture above. Remove all of the little round bones as well as any smaller bones. 

Also "peel" off all of the dark skin that is on the meat and crumble the remaining pink salmon in a medium mixing bowl.

Add chopped onion and egg.

Add bread crumbs and mix until well combined.

Place desired amount into palm of hand, squeeze and form into a patty.  

After second side is cooked to desired doneness, remove from skillet and drain on paper towels.  Cook remaining patties.

Serve with ketchup or tartar sauce, if desired.

** Shown here with Mashed Cauliflower.

These were standard in my house growing up, but my mom never put onion in them. I wonder if my kids would like them?
Thanks for bringing back a lovely childhood food memory for me.

Oh my goodness! I haven't thought about those in years. My mama used to make those all the time when I was growing up. She always called them "salmon patties". My husband loves them! Great idea for dinner on a busy day....quick and easy!

They sure look yummy. I'm not sure if I can get canned salmon in England, but if so, it's a done deal. My husband and son absolutely love salmon.

I found your cooking blog through "Dawn's Cottage" even though I'm following your other blog. Both blogs are great!

We called them salmon patties too....I LOVE them. I never make them b/c John hates fish....but I beg my Nanny or Mama to make them for me when I go home. :)
