Gluten Free Salmon Croquettes

Gluten Free Salmon Croquettes Recipe

Here in Florida, and in most other Southern states, croquettes or fried patties/cakes are as common around the holidays as any other time of year. You see, we don’t take a break from seafood or fried foods just because it’s a holy day – if anything, we serve up even more seafood and fried foods to celebrate!

So, if you’d like a little taste of the South this holiday season – or any time, for that matter – fry up a batch of these delicious Gluten Free Salmon Croquettes. They make a nice appetizer or can be made as a light meal and served with a fresh salad on the side.

Recipe notes: Apparently, when a dish is called “salmon croquettes” it’s not always made with salmon, but rather, with any canned fish. Personally, I like to call my food the correct name, so I used real salmon in this recipe. For the breading, I used Kinnikinnick gluten free panko style bread crumbs, which crisp up perfectly!
