Salmon Croquettes

Salmon Croquettes for Babies and Toddlers

If you’re into simple, delicious and a filling meal that can be served breakfast, lunch or dinner- this is it! Great idea for leftover mashed potatoes and you can swap out the salmon for any protein! I made a bunch to freeze as well so my future self will thank me. Got the Eller stamp of approval this morning!

Salmon Croquettes

Prep Time 35 minutes
Cook Time 8 minutes
Servings 13


  • 4 medium russet potatoes peeled and chopped into 2 inch cubes
  • 1 lb wild caught salmon cooked
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup sharp cheddar cheese grated
  • 1 tbsp parsley
  • 1/4 cup avocado oil or olive oil


  • Heat a large pot of water to boil and add potatoes. Cook until fork tender, about 25 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and set potatoes in a large bowl. Mash the potatoes until there are no chunks.
  • Add the cooked salmon, cheese, and parsley to bowl with mashed potatoes and mix until combined.
  • Take a small handful- should fit inside your palm- and form into croquettes. (You may form them into any shape you like! I did longer finger length)
  • Whisk eggs in a bowl and set aside.
  • Put breadcrumbs in a separate dish and set next to bowl with egg wash.
  • Dip croquette in egg wash then roll in breadcrumbs. Repeat until all croquettes are covered in breadcrumbs.
  • Add oil in large pan over medium high heat. Watch until you see oil bubble then gently place croquette in pan.
  • Cook on each side until it’s lightly brown (about 1-2 minutes) until all sides are golden and crispy. Don’t overcrowd and cook in batches.
  • Set aside on plate once done and let cool before serving!
