These are delicate and soft fish croquette with a light crisp coating. I have used this recipe for leftover baked or broiled fish like salmon, steelhead trout, or other fish.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 2 cups leftover cooked steelhead trout
  • 1 cup soft bread crumbs
  • ½ sweet onion, minced
  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • ½ lemon, juiced
  • ½ teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • ½ teaspoon seasoned salt, or more to taste
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ground black pepper to taste
  • ½ cup panko bread crumbs, or as needed

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil.
  2. 2 Discard skin, bones, and any crust from trout and flake fish with a fork. Combine flaked fish with soft bread crumbs, onion, mayonnaise, sour cream, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, salt, garlic powder, and black pepper in a bowl. Form mixture into balls and roll each ball in the panko. Arrange balls on the prepared baking sheet.
  3. 3 Bake in the preheated oven until croquettes are lightly browned and crispy, 15 to 20 minutes.

Chef's Notes

I like to use the food processor to chop onion while processing bread for the soft bread crumbs. If I have more than one cup of the soft crumb mixture, I simply add the remaining to the dry panko crumbs at the end so long as it is not exceed the dry crumbs by half. Easy to adjust to your own taste by adding cheese or herbs.


  1. I made them with chopped, uncooked cod and salmon (separately). The salmon was the favorite and held together better during baking. Added capers and left out the lemon juice - they're a bit fussy to make with the raw fish, but delicious! Added a couple minutes baking time due to the uncooked fish. Will do - Read more ...
  2. I love this recipe! I have used it with leftover steelhead, canned salmon, canned tuna, you name it. Pretty much, I do not tweak it, with exception of making gluten free bread crumbs and subbing them for panko. I, also, use this recipe for leftover poultry. When used with poultry, I add some Parmesan to - Read more ...
