These salmon patties are just as tasty hot or cold

Print this recipe
Rich in healthy fat and flavor, salmon is a nutritious choice for any meal. When salmon joins crushed crackers and spice in this recipe, it creates a typical Southern patty known as a croquette. Fried until crispy on the outside and tender on the inside, they're just as delicious served hot with steamed veggies and rice on the side or cold in a sandwich or on top of a salad.
These salmon patties are flavorful all on their own, but you can slather them with sauces and other condiments. Tartar sauce, remoulade sauce or a simple squeeze of fresh lemon will dress them up nicely. A sprinkling of parsley for garnish will stand out against their vibrant color.
