Salmon Croquettes


  • 1 cup organic yellow cornmeal
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ⅛ tsp pepper
  • 1 finely chopped medium onion
  • 1 finely chopped medium bell pepper and/or 1 finely chopped stalk of celery
  • 3 crumbled strips of cooked turkey bacon (nitrate-free)
  • 1-2 tbsp stone ground mustard
  • 4 cans of wild caught Alaskan salmon (drained)
  • 3 eggs, whisked
  • Avocado oil


Combine the first 3 ingredients in a shallow mixing bowl and set aside. Combine the remaining ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Once blended, form into patties. Dip the patties in the cornmeal mixture and coat the outside of the patties on both sides. Add a tablespoon of avocado oil to a heated cast iron pan and coat well. Add patties and cook about 5 minutes on each side or until browned and no liquid comes out when pressed. Makes 11-12. Save leftover patties and have as a sandwich or a healthy salad.
