Okay Karen, just because you asked. :)
As I said, Mama's recipe for Salmon Croquettes is extremely simple.
To one 14 ounce can salmon, add one egg and one egg yolk and mix well, being sure to break up all the salmon pieces.
Put the remaining egg white into a bowl with a couple of tablespoons of water and mix well.
In another bowl, put one sleeve (1/4 pound) of saltine crackers which you have crushed.
Form your salmon mixture into patties. One can of salmon will make four nice patties. Dip the patties, one at a time, into the egg white mixture, then into the cracker crumb mixture.
Fry, just until golden brown in a small amount of cooking oil.
That's all there is to it. And to think, I made up recipes that called for first making up a white sauce to mix with the canned salmon. Mama got a good laugh out of that one.
Let me know how you like this if you try it.
