Mini Salmon Loaf

Total Time

Prep: 15 min. Bake: 40 min.


2 servings

This nicely textured salmon loaf accompanied by a pleasing dill sauce is perfect for two. "I've made it many, many times," relates Patricia Gould of Canaan, New Hampshire.


  • 3/4 cup chopped celery
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 cup soft bread crumbs
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 2 tablespoons 2% milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 can (7-1/2 ounces) salmon, drained, bones and skin removed
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon 2% milk
  • 2 teaspoons snipped fresh dill
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper


  1. In a small skillet, saute celery and onion in oil until tender. In a large bowl, combine the bread crumbs, egg, milk, salt, pepper and celery mixture. Crumble salmon over mixture and mix well. Transfer to a greased 5-3/4x3x2-in. loaf pan.
  2. Bake at 350° for 40-45 minutes or until a thermometer reads 160°. In a small bowl, combine the sauce ingredients. Serve with salmon loaf.

    Delicious. I made this loaf and served it with a salad for lunch. Perfect for two. I made a cream sauce instead of the dill sauce. Thank you, Patricia, for sharing this recipe.

    We really enjoy this little salmon loaf. Perfect for two people. I served it with roasted potatoes in garlic butter. So good. I halved the dill sauce as it makes lots.

    This was amazing!! Perfect texture and makes for a great lunch (I was able to get four meals out of one loaf) In order to lighten it up, I made the sauce with 2 percent Greek yogurt. The sauce turned out great and was way lighter! I also did not cook the veggies in that much oil and I used a whole grain bread. The sauce recipe makes lots

    I haven't tried the recipe- there are too many calories, fat, cholesterol and sodium in the recipe! If I do, I'd emit the salt, use whole grain panko instead of the bread crumbs, use reduced fat mayo (or tofunaise) for the mayo, and nonfat Greek yogurt instead of the sour cream. That should really lighten it up! Hmm, I wonder if I could substitute tuna for the salmon in this recipe, or mackerel...

    Loved this recipe! The two servings were very generous. The dill sauce was the perfect accompaniment!
