Salmon Croquettes with Garlic Dill Dressing


  • 2 Large Cans of Salmon, drained
  • 1 Medium - Large Onion- grated
  • 2 Cloves Garlic minced
  • 1/4 Cup minced Parsley and/or Dill (Cilantro would work if you want)
  • 2 Raw Eggs
  • 3 TBSP Whole Wheat Matzoh Meal or Whole Grain Bread Crumbs
  • Grapeseed oil for frying
  • If you have an ice cream scooper - this will give you croquettes that are uniform and will stick together better in the skillet without burnt bits floating around.
  • 2 Cups of Greek Yogurt (or soft cheese of choice), Mayonnaise for a non-dairy option
  • 2 Cloves Garlic minced
  • About 5 sprigs of dill minced
  • Salt and Pepper to taste


  • Drain Salmon pour into a large bowl.
  • Mash the Salmon with a fork, making sure you mash all the bits of bone in. Do not remove the skin, unless you think it makes a difference - it doesn't. No one will ever know and it's good for you.
  • Add the grated onion, minced garlic, minced parsley/dill, eggs and then finally the matzoh meal.
  • In a non-stick or cast iron skillet - let the skillet preheat for a minute on a medium high flame.
  • Pour about 2 TBSP of oil, let that heat up for 1.5 minutes.
  • Turn down flame to medium/high - checking if it needs to be lowered or raised as needed.
  • With an ice cream scooper, scoop enough so the top is level.
  • Place about 4 scoops in the skillet - then flatten with a fork, keeping the edges smooth.
  • When the bottom is well browned - not burnt, flip them over till the other side is browned.
  • Place them on a prepared plate with paper towels to absorb excess oil.
  • Add oil as needed.
  • If the oil has turned browns and has burnt pieces inside - turn the flame off on the skillet - let cool down for a minute, then take two paper towels and clean off the bottom of the skillet and start again - preheating the oil and adding the salmon mixture as needed.
  • Combine dressing ingredients and serve alongside the croquettes.
