I have fond memories of my grandma making salmon croquettes and spaghetti with marinara sauce for dinner - One of my favorite meals as a kid! She always used canned salmon for the cakes and fried them until they were crispy and golden brown on the outside. I recently experimented with a healthier, baked version that are just as tasty. These simple baked Salmon croquettes are delicious paired with homemade mac & cheese or served over a fresh salad.
