Salmon Croquettes with Dill sauce can be an appetizer or even a weeknight meal. Sometimes, I serve them over a salad, sometimes, I plate them with vegetables, and sometimes, I put them in a bun for a salmon alternative to beef or turkey burgers. These salmon croquettes are made with canned salmon, a great pantry staple as it is nonperishable, inexpensive, and darn good for you. The dill sauce is also the perfect compliment.

Seared in a little olive oil instead of being deep-fried, they are also good for you! Salmon is full of protein and omega-3 fatty acids, which help reduce the risk of heart disease. Plus, you get even more protein from the Greek yogurt in the dill sauce that’s served with these croquettes. Also, check out PrimeWater Seafood for salmon that is SUSTAINABLY RAISED & TRACEABLE.

Salmon Croquettes that are perfectly crisp on the outside and deliciously tender and flaky on the inside. Topped with a creamy Dill Sauce you’ll love! Salmon croquettes are basically a southern version of a salmon cake or salmon patty. It can be fried or even baked. The contents are usually canned salmon though there are quite a few newer recipes that use fresh salmon that has been either chopped finely or ground to mold into patties.
