What sides with Salmon croquettes?

I'm speaking of the typical Southern style salmon patty. Canned salmon, egg, bread crumbs and pan fried.

I like them but don't really ever know what to serve with them.

  1. You can't go wrong with a salad, or your favorite veg. Something with a nice bright flavor to balance the mellowness of the croquettes.

    When I was a kid we always had salmon croquettes served with creamed corn.

    1. In-season sliced tomatoes with a lemon vinaigrette, buttered petit pois, creamed spinach or kale, or definitely the green salad suggested by benbenberi.

      1. I too think of something bright and fresh....
        -salad/coleslaw with a tangy dressing
        -green bean and cherry tomato salad with lemon vinaigrette
        -roasted brussels sprouts with balsamic and toasted nuts
        -sauteed sugar snap peas and carrots with fresh mint

        1. I make salmon croquettes for my husband who loves them,not me at all.Favored sides,in season corn is #1 and 4Snisl got all the rest but one,stir fry cabbage.

          1. I make mine always with couscous (from a box, a spicy one) and frozen peas. Great combination.
