It's official my grandson started back to school on Monday and with that comes the chaos of finding the time and energy to fix quick and easy suppers. I work 10 hours a day and I don't get home until late, so the task of fixing supper falls to my better half. With school back in session I wanted to make my hubby's time in the kitchen easier, so I planned a week's worth of thirt minute or under recipes.

One of most favorite childhood memories of growing up in the South was watching my mama fix salmon croquettes. It's still one of my favorite Southern comfort foods. I've tweaked mama's recipe to get my grandson to eat salmon. I add a special ingredient to bring out the flavor of the salmon. It's yummy in your tummy y'all.

Ingredients for salmon croquettes:
1 can salmon, drained, bones removed
1 egg-beaten
1 lemon-halved
Equal parts flour and Italian bread crumbs (about 1/2 cup each)
1 tablespoon dill plus 1 1/2 teaspoons
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 teaspoon sea salt
oil for frying(about 1/3 to top)
about 1/4 chopped green onion(save some for garnish)
6 whole wheat rolls

Over medium heat, heat oil in medium skillet. Combine canned salmon, beaten egg, flour-Italian bread crumbs and salt,pepper and 1 tablespoon dill. Form into patties and dust with additional seasoned bread crumbs. Fry until golden brown, about 2 minutes on each side. As patties cook, sprinkle with remaining dill and juice from 1 lemon halve. Remove from skillet, place on paper towel to drain any excess grease. Let patties rest about 2 minutes. Place salmon burger on roll, top with sauce and a little green onion.

Makes about 6 patties 

Sour Cream Dill Sauce:
8 oz. container sour cream
1 teaspoon dill or to taste
ground black pepper to taste
1 teaspoon lemon

Whisk ingredients together, serve over salmon croquettes.

These sound delicious! Each time Lent rolls around, I think of making some sort of salmon patty but never know where to start. Yours are simple and the sauce looks amazing! Thanks for sharing the for #SundaySupper~

Katy said...

I love the flavors in this dish! Great weeknight recipe, thanks for sharing it!

This was the only way I knew you could eat salmon growing up. Your version is much fancier than ours - we called ours Salmon Cakes and used crushed up saltines in them. We never ate them as sandwiches either - great idea!

Lane said...

Even though I'm not a salmon fan these sound delicious! Maybe I will like salmon is I cover it with sour cream sauce.

Paula @ Vintage Kitchen said...

Great idea for a different burger! Perfect for a hectic day.

I've made salmon patties but not with lemon and dill. I'll have to try your recipe. I like the sauce that goes with it too.

Sarah said...

Anne @ Webicurean said...

Your post reminded me of my Dad (who passed away in January)...in a phone conversation one time, he told me about how he loved salmon patties. I told him how I had never had them and he explained to me how he made them. I love fish, so I figured I would try them someday. But I had forgotten about it and until I read your post, it was something I hadn't thought about since he told me. I can't remember the ingredients he said other than canned salmon. Anyway, your recipe looks great and I'm saving it so I can make it in honor of him. Thanks for this!

Salmon and dill were made for each other!

Mmmm...salmon is one of my favorite things and I can just imagine how tasty these croquettes are - especially with that sauce.
