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!

Gluten Free Salmon Croquettes Recipe


3 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon fresh parsley, minced
1 teaspoon capers, drained and finely chopped
1 garlic clove, minced or grated
1 (14.75-ounce) can salmon, undrained
1½ cups Kinnikinnick gluten free panko style bread crumbs
3 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 (2.25-ounce) can sliced black olives, drained
3 green onions, finely chopped
2 heaping teaspoons Old Bay seasoning
3 tablespoons vegetable oil


Combine mayonnaise, lemon juice, parsley, capers, and garlic. Cover and refrigerate until serving.

Pour salmon in a bowl and flake with a fork. Add the bread crumbs, eggs, olives, green onions, and Old Bay. Mix well and form into 8 patties, each about ½-inch thick, compacting firmly.

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Fry patties in batches (do not overcrowd the pan) for 3-4 minutes per side, or until nicely browned.

Serve with the sauce.
