  1. This recipe calls for canned salmon, but I recommend you get a fresh fillet of salmon. Poach the salmon fillets until cooked and then flake them. This ensures a fresh and rich taste every time.
  2. Since canned salmon is always seasoned and you can’t risk adding more spices, you can always work with fresh salmon. To elevate the recipe, you can add a mix of herbs and spices to make it more delicious and finger-licking good.

How to Store Salmon Croquette?

You can store them in the freezer in a box. Make sure to line them separately and not on top of each other. If you have to place them on top of each other, put parchment paper or a plastic sheet between the layers to prevent them from sticking. They’ll stay good in the freezer for a month. Take them out a few minutes before you’re ready to cook them.
