I can always find recipes for Salmon Croquettes but my mom used mackerel.
I enjoy a plate of hard fried mackerel with onion and rice on a Saturday morning. My younger sister will not use onions in her mackerel. There is a funny story behind that but I can not tell it here.

Here's the recipe.......

1 can mackerel
1 small chopped onion
1 egg
1 cup flour
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. black pepper
Oil for frying

Heat oil in a skillet, until hot but not smoking.

Place mackerels in mixing bowl, breaking up into smaller pieces. Add 1 egg, mixing thoroughly. Stir in flour. Blend in salt, onion and black pepper. Stir mixture until well combined. Form mixture into croquettes. Drop into deep hot oil, 375 degrees and fry, without crowding, for 3 to 5 minutes or until golden brown on all sides. Drain on paper towel.
