Without further ado, take information about the ingredients so that you can indulge yourself with these baked fish croquettes.


To prepare these delicious baked fish croquettes, you do not require so many ingredients. On the list are:

  • 250 grams of shredded fish

  • 1/2 cup diced onion.

  • 2 sweet peppers, chopped into very small squares,

  • 1 small spoonful of marinade,

  • 1 egg.

  • 1/2 cup of skim milk,

  • 3/4 cup of rolled oats.

  • 1 tablespoon of cornstarch,

  • 3 packages of whole grain cookies.

For the sauce

These croquettes are usually a bit dry, so it is advisable to prepare a sauce that accompanies the preparation, for this it must have:

  • 1 Yogurt with pineapple

  • 2 lemons its juice.

  • 1 chives, minced

  • 1 clove of garlic and season everything.

Preparation of the baked fish croquettes

To start it is necessary to boil the fish for approximately 15 minutes. Then you need to drain it, let it cool and crumble it.

Once the fish is ready, place the fish in a bowl, along with the peppers, the marinade, the onion and the egg. Mix well until all the ingredients are fully integrated.

Now, it's time to add the oats, milk, and cornstarch. And I continued mixing with enveloping motion. This should give it a fairly soft and chewy dough-like texture.

With the dough ready, place the ground or crushed cookies as good as possible on a tray. Also, have a tray with a layer of oil ready to place the croquettes that go into the oven.

Assemble the portions and pass them through the crushed cookies using a little pressure so that it adheres to the dough. Then, place the croquettes on the tray considering a little separation.

When you have filled the tray, bake for about 10 minutes at 180 °C.

Preparation of the cream

The sauce that I propose to prepare requires mixing all the ingredients, the yogurt, the chives, the garlic, the lemon and the seasoning. When done take to the fridge.

When the croquettes are ready, and you are going to serve, accompany the croquettes with the sauce to taste.


It is necessary that you keep in mind when making the croquettes:


For fish, you may well choose tuna, which is food that yields a lot, but it must be cooked in a pressure cooker, so that it softens faster.

Keep in mind that you must place the pot to soak and wash very well, since the smell that the tuna gives off is very strong and penetrates the pot, and it can remain for a long time.

Do not exceed the cooking time, once the pressure cooker begins to release pressure through the valve, you should start the 20-minute countdown to prevent the tuna from dissolving in the water.

If you don't have or get whole grain cookies, you can have whole wheat bread. Unlike other breads, these do not tend to moisten as quickly and give a crispier texture.

The seasoning can also be changed for a seasoning of 7 species that will give it a sweeter flavor that will contrast with the pineapple in the yogurt.


If you do not have enough tuna, or you simply need the recipe to yield more, you can place ¼ kilo of lentils to soak, after half a day, liquid and add to the mixture.

Lentils will take on the strong flavor of the tuna and the seasonings you use. If you notice that the mixture is very watery, you can add a little flour to give it more texture and make it easier to mold.


When assembling the croquettes it is better to make small portions, so you must serve several. You can even leave them in that state and put them in a container in the freezer using plastic spacers.


If you have prepared the croquettes and leave them breaded in the fridge, you can keep them for 3 days. Since they will even take more taste and flavor. In the case of the sauce, I tried to serve and use the portion of the moment.

Too much handling can damage the sauce. The ideal is to separate into portions and use according to the moment.

Preparation time

A very particular recommendation is that if you are going to taste this dish for lunch, prepare it the night before or early that day in the morning along with the sauce.

This will make it take more taste and flavor. Cooking times may vary based on portion sizes. The thicker it may take a little longer.

Choice of sauce

When it comes to croquettes, you can use any sauce of your choice. However, in this particular, because it is fish, lemon is not something that can be missing.

So you want you can choose to place chopped lemon, so that each person adds to taste. Or if you want to make a more elaborate cream, it has to be ingredients that match the lemon.

That is why the pineapple makes a great contrast with the lemon and the rest of the ingredients, mixing sweet and salty.

This is a fairly simple recipe to prepare. The ingredients can vary according to the seasoning you want to give it. So there is no excuse not to try to make these delicious baked fish cakes.
