One regular size can folks. Plus you might add 1T mayo to help hold together and season with old bay seasoning. This is the BEST recipe!

I would love to make these but am not sure how much salmon to use. Can someone just let me know what size can or how many ounces please? Thank you

Paula, I love your Salmon Croquettes! My grandmother made them when I was growing up and they were good, but yours are better! My youngest daughter uses your recipe as well. We can't thank you enough! God Bless you.

Delicious, just like home! I have a question. With the salmon mixture can I use corn meal instead of bread crumbs and can I fry them in canola oil instead of vegatable? I don't want to mess up the receipe. I just need to alter it a little to accomadate my current health issues. Paula U always make me feel like home and I don't miss it has much has I use to since I started watching your shows on a regular basis. Thank U for the comfort foods as well. They make me smile and fill my heart with the warmth of joy. May God continue to bless U and keep U. Absolutely Heavenly, Val

Is that 2 cans Salmon or is that saying 1 can equal 2 Salmon?

I love making salmon croquettes. I have a recipe to share, I don't use measurments just a little of this and a little of that. Fresh salmon, crab (imitation or fresh) egg, onion, seasonings (to liking) cornmeal and flour mixture. Form into patties. Fry with veg. oil and enjoy
