Salmon Croquettes~ Retro Recipe~

I grew up on these..

Leftover mashed potatoes fresh cooked salmon or a can of good quality salmon.. ....chives..an egg.. chopped scallions..celery salt.. lemon juice and rind.. Shaped and coated in seasoned breadcrumbs..pan seared..
I love them because she made them..even though they weren't heart shaped:)

Cause I knew.. the were heartfelt~
They tasted so..
Maybe that's why they still taste like filet mignon or châteaubriand to me:)
Just don't expect everyone to think so:)

WE had a salad on the side..and on another side..
This FABULOUS recipe from Mary~

A keeper recipe for certain.I LOVED making them..
It's printed..and clipped and in my keeper file now..

Thank you Mary~


  1. I am a sucker for anything heart shaped and heartfelt! Beautiful...and the garnish is ingenious. Thanks, Monique...I'm going to check out Mary's Naan bread now.

  2. Diane.. you will love Mary's Naan..It should have been the featured item:)

  3. A lovely meal, Monique. I'm very fond of salmon cakes and Mary's bread would be a perfect accompaniment.

  4. The heart shaped croquettes are just lovely!

  5. Foods from childhood have a special meaning, a special taste. Nostalgia and memories are wonderful! This is particularly lovely, and the heart-shape is CUTE!

  6. Your croquettes are beautiful. And thanks so much for the link to Mary's Naan bread...I can't wait to try it the next time I make curry!
