    Best salmon croquette recipe I have found. I served this for dinner with a salad. The sauce is unique and flavorful. My husband prefers a heartier meal, but he enjoyed this. I would serve it again.

    My husband and I really enjoyed this recipe. We paid a little extra for the canned Alaskan sockeye salmon and it was well worth it. The horseradish sauce is also a must have. We served the croquesttes with rice and green beans in shallot sauce.

    These are excellent and easy. The only thing I did differently was I used olive oil in lieu of cooking spray.

    Terrific recipe for salmon croquettes! The sauce really makes these special, but the croquettes are also good on their own. Be careful, the sauce is HOT; you might want to cut back on the cayenne and black pepper, or add them slowly and taste. My DH really enjoyed these. I recommend good quality red salmon (skinless, boneless).

    I thought this recipe was decent but nothing to write home about. The horseradish sauce was the best part. It had a good flavor but really just tasted like chopped up salmon. We drenched with lemon juice to give a kick while eating them. Maybe some more binding agents and flavor would help like Dijon mustard.

    Pretty good! I too thought the sauce was a little too hot & I even backed off the black pepper some. Next time I'll cook them in a little olive oil for less than 9 minutes on each side. They seemed a little too cooked for me but were delish.

    I have made many similar recipes, but this one is the best. I did use seasoned bread crumbs, egg substitute, and lemon juice instead of lemon peel; that probably brought up the flavor some, and I cooked just five minutes per side in 1 tsp. of olive oil. We like hot foods, so I used a big fat rounded tsp. of horseradish and a full 1/4 tsp. of both red and black pepper. Served with steamed new potatoes and asparagus. I was happy with one patty, but my husband ate two and thought about a third one.
