These easy to make salmon croquettes are just as tasty as pan-fried but they are grease free and oil free. That’s thanks to an air fryer!


  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can salmon, drained and flaked
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • ¾ cup panko bread crumbs
  • ½ cup diced onion
  • ⅓ cup mayonnaise
  • ½ lemon, juiced
  • 1 teaspoon dried dill weed
  • 1 teaspoon seafood seasoning (such as Old Bay®)
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • avocado oil nonstick cooking spray


Combine salmon, egg, panko, onions, mayonnaise, lemon juice, dill, seafood seasoning, salt, and pepper in a bowl. Mix to combine and shape into 6 equal-sized patties.

Preheat the air fryer to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line air fryer basket with parchment paper and spray with avocado oil.

Place salmon croquettes into the basket and spray with avocado oil.

Air fry until croquettes are golden brown, 8 to 10 minutes. Flip croquettes over, spray with avocado oil, and air fry an additional 4 to 7 minutes. Cook in batches if necessary.
