About this Recipe

When I think about croquettes, I think about my grandma – and that’s sweet and gives me the feelz. But then, I think of the fried, stuck on mess in the pan, and then I think of the smell that lingers in the house for DAYS.

This recipe is baked and thus, conveniently misses the heavy-duty elbow scrubbing, but also the fishy smell. #win

  • 1 can Red Salmon
  • 2 tbsp diced, pickled jalapeno
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp parsley flakes
  • 1/3 cup of grated cheese ()
  • 1 tbsp Adobo Spice Mix (the mix I use)


  • Salmon can be very expensive, but using a good quality canned version makes this more affordable.
  • Tuna works well too!!!
  • For cheese, I used Great Value Fiesta Blend
  • If you WANT to fry them, by all means do so. =)

Step by Step Instructions

Step 1:

In a large bowl, mix everything until well incorporated.

Step 2:

Place 1/4 cup of mixture into a silicone cup. These are the ones I use. Regular muffin cups mean you can’t thin out the mixture into a patty shape.

Step 3:

Bake at 350 degrees until browned, dry to the touch, and somewhat “firm but springy” in the center.

Step 4:

Remove from oven, and silicone cups.

Step 5:

Serve with salsa and/or guacamole and your choice of low carb veggies.
