Who doesn’t love Croquettes? They’re like more sophisticated versions of Tater Tots. Filled with all kinds of delicious goodies, Croquettes are an absolute go-to order for us whenever we’re eating Tapas. They’re just so delicious. Our favorite is the classic Fish Croquettes which is what we’re serving up today

Luckily for us, we’ve found a super fun way to utilize the leftovers from our beautiful Smoked Trout Pie (recipe link here) and that is, of course, turning it into Croquettes! All the ingredients of the classic Smoked Fish Croquettes are built into that delicious pie, so if you have leftovers this is a really fun and easy snack to make

For this recipe we will reference our Smoked Fish Pie recipe which can be found here, however you can just as easily prepare this dish from scratch. Just pick up some delicious smoked fish from the supermarket such as Trout, Cod or Salmon. Make some mashed potatoes with butter and a little bit of cream, then mix in a bunch of Sharp Cheddar cheese and you’ve got the filling!

Fish Croquettes Recipe


  • 2 cups of Trout Pie Leftovers (recipe here)
  • ½ cup All-Purpose Flour
  • 2 Eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup Breadcrumbs
  • 4-5 cups of Frying Oil (eg: Canola or Vegetable Oil)
  • Salt


  1. Begin by preparing your mixing stations, which you will need 3 medium sized bowl for. The first bowl is filled with All-Purpose Flour, seasoned with 1 tsp. of Salt. Add the beaten Eggs to the second Bowl to create an Egg Wash, and the Breadcrumb to the third Bowl
  2. Create your Croquettes by forming the Cheesy Potato and Fish mixture into golf ball sized balls
  3. Coat each ball with Flour, Egg Wash and then finally the Breadcrumbs. The best technique is to use one hand for the dry ingredients and the other hand for the wet ingredients. Do this for each ball then set them aside
  4. Heat your frying oil in a medium sized pot to a frying temperature of between 350 – 375 degrees. Once at that temperature, carefully place the balls into the Oil. Do not overload the Oil as the temperature will drop too greatly and your Croquettes will become greasy
  5. Fry for about 5-6 minutes until the Croquettes are a beautiful golden-brown color. Once cooked, remove, and place on a wire rack and immediately season well with Salt. You’re now ready to serve!

These Fish Croquettes are delicious by themselves but even better with some tasty dipping sauce. Check out our Sauces page here for some great sauces, or you can simply serve with some Mayonnaise and they’ll taste delicious!
