Salmon patties, also known as croquettes, are a delicious way to incorporate healthy fats into your diet through fish. These can be made with any canned fish or shellfish – such as salmon, tuna, crab, or shrimp.



  • Combine all ingredients except the oil/butter in a large bowl and mix well to combine.
  • Form the mixture into 6 patties with your hands. Refrigerate the patties for about 30 minutes before frying.
  • Heat a skillet or frying pan over medium heat and use a thin layer of oil, butter or ghee to fry the patties for about 3-4 minutes per side, using a spatula to turn.
  • When golden brown, remove from oil and let drain on a paper towel-lined plate or on a baking rack over a pan.
  • Serve with your favorite condiment (tartar sauce, remoulade, or even sugar-free ketchup), a hearty side dish and enjoy!

  • Fry the croquettes in batches to prevent over-crowding in the pan. Keep them warm in a very low oven if multiple batches are being fried.

      2. Tastes delicious. The Pattie’s fell apart. I didn’t squeeze drain the salmon. Added more almond flour to other half and still fell apart. Maybe use 2 eggs. Thanks. Pat

          Thanks, Pat. Chilling them a bit in the refrigerator helps firm them up for cooking. But most importantly, the salmon MUST be drained. Way too much water to hold a patty together, otherwise. 😉

          Thanks for coming back to let us know how you liked them!
