Salmon Loaf Recipe

Publisher Photo
During the Depression, Mom's tasty salmon loaf was a welcome change from the usual meat loaf everyone made to stretch a meal. I still like a lot of the make-do meals of those days, but this loaf is one of my favorites.

MY REVIEW

This tasted okay, but the loaf wasn't very...loaf-like. Though cooked through, it was not really held together well. May try cooking it without the water bath next time.

I used fresh Salmon for this recipe. The taste was to die for. Wonderful ! I will never use creamed peas on my salmon ever again. Loved the sauce too.

Moist, light and tasty. I used half butter and half olive oil and added a dab of French mustard, horseradish and dill to the Olive cream sauce. As in your photo, served with lemon wedge and dill. Excellent
