Number of Servings: 16


    * 1 can Bumble Bee Wild Salmon, mashed
    * 4 green onions, chopped fine
    * 4 teaspoons Dijon mustard
    * 4 large eggs, beaten
    * 2 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
    * 1 teaspoon kosher salt
    * 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    * 1.5 cup panko bread crumbs, divided
    * Olive oil, for sauteing


Place the salmon, onions, mustard, eggs, lemon juice, salt, pepper and 1/2 cup of the bread crumbs into a medium mixing bowl and stir to combine. Divide the mixture into 16 rounds and set aside on a parchment lined half sheet pan. Allow to rest for 15 minutes. Place the remaining bread crumbs into a pie plate. One at a time, coat each round in the panko on all sides.

Heat enough olive oil to cover the bottom of a 12-inch saute pan over medium heat until shimmering. Add the croquettes and cook 2 to 3 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Remove to a cooling rack set over a half sheet pan lined with paper towels. Allow to cool for 2 to 3 minutes before serving.

  • I used 8 oz fresh salmon, minced it up with a big knife on my butcher board. I added 1/4 cup chopped red pepper and 1/4 cup chopped green onions. I also only used one egg and 1/2 cup of panko. Fried them in canola oil and they were fantastic. Even husband like them. Very very good. - 2/27/12

  • Really excellent taste. I had a little confusion. My cans are 6 oz (170 grams) of salmon. What size is your can? How did you come up with 16 servings? at 75 kcal each? - 11/2/11

  • This was Great! Panko always brings a breadcrumb dish up a notch. We like food spicier so I added Tony's and enjoyed using our home-grown green onions. - 3/22/11
