Easy Healthy Comfort Food: Salmon Croquettes

May 17, 2009


I grew up eating salmon croquettes once a week, so I like to occasionally make them for my family for dinner. I developed this lower in fat, high protein version using wild Alaskan red salmon (I like Pillar Rock), panko breadcrumbs, egg whites, Dijon mustard, nonfat yogurt and basil. These are fabulous served with a salad and your favorite side dish and, to me, are true comfort food that are family-friendly.

Salmon Croquettes

Prep: 10 minutes
Cook: 12 minutes
Yield: 4 servings
1/3 cup plain nonfat or Greek yogurt
1 tablespoon whole-grain Dijon mustard
2 large egg whites
1 Cooking spray
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped celery
1 cup panko breadcrumbs, divided
1/4 teaspoon dried basil
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 (7.5-ounce) cans wild Alaskan red salmon, skinless and drained
4 teaspoons olive oil
1 Fresh basil sprigs (optional)
1. To prepare croquettes, combine yogurt, mustard, and egg whites in a bowl. Set aside.

2. Heat a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add 1/2 cup onion and celery; cook 4 minutes or until tender. Cool slightly. Combine onion mixture, yogurt mixture, 1/2 cup panko, 1/4 teaspoon dried basil, 1/8 teaspoon pepper, and salmon in a bowl; toss gently. Cover and chill 10 minutes. Divide salmon mixture into 4 equal portions, shaping each into a 1/2-inch-thick patty. Coat patties evenly with remaining breadcrumbs.

2. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add patties; reduce heat to medium. Cook 4 minutes on each side or until lightly browned. Serve croquettes. Garnish with fresh basil, if desired.
