The best part of my childhood will always be the time I spent at my grandparents’ home during the summer. It was routine to wait until my grandmother to wake so she could make my ultimate favorite breakfast dish: salmon croquettes. Whether they were served for breakfast with grits or for dinner with rice or other starchy sides, these crispy and flaky salmon cakes were always sure to fill your soul and make any meal great. I am super excited to share this recipe with you- when I finally tasted the finished recipe, I thought immediately “these tastes like my grandma’s!” Using fresh pink salmon was never the way I was taught, we’d use canned salmon because it was always on hand and way cheaper than fresh or frozen options. I found these fresh salmon croquettes very simple to make with a less fishy smell and taste compared to recipe versions using canned fish. I hope you all enjoy just as much as my family and I did.
