Growing up I loved when we would have salmon croquettes for dinner, except because my family is so fancy we call them salmon patties. :) Either way, they're delicious. I tried a number of recipes until I finally just made one up, and we love it. Typically I serve these as the main dish with a salad, however, you can easily make them smaller and have them as a side.
