My mom used to make Salmon Croquettes:

1 12 oz can pink salmon
2 Whole eggs
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup all purpose flour
2 tablespoons yellow corn meal
1/2 teaspoon salt (depending upon the
brand and how much salt is in it you
can leave this out if you want.
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

You basically pour all of the ingredients into
a large bowl and mix them. A large spoon or a
potato masher worked fine. I add the flour last
because I sometimes adust the amount to control the
consistency. Mold the dough-like mix that you
end up with into patties (like thick homemade

Coat a frying pan (she uses an iron skillet) with a little cooking oil. Crisco
works just fine. Preheat the oiled pan over medium
heat. Slip the patties into the pan, fitting as
many as you can but leaving room to turn them. Cook
until medium brown on one side, then turn over and
do the same to the other side.

I just substituted salmon for the tuna in tuna casserole and the kids loved it. They had gotten so tired of the plain tuna version.
