Meatless Fridays?  Celebrating Lent?  A great and easy Salmon Loaf that is delicious when made with leftover grilled salmon but can be in the oven within 5 minutes using affordable canned salmon too. 


$PullQuote$Salmon Loaf

1/4 cup fresh finely chopped onion
1 teaspoon dried dillweed
1 tablespoon butter
1 slightly beaten egg
1/4 - 1/3 cup milk or cream
1 cup soft bread crumbs
Leftover salmon to equal about 1 1/2 - 2 cups or about 15 oz. (*can use a can of salmon)

In a microwaveable bowl place the onion, dill and pepper with the pat of butter. Microwave about 2-3 minutes until the onion is tender. Combine the egg, bread crumbs, milk and onion mixture. Add the salmon, breaking it apart as you add it. Mix with your hands for best blending. Shape into a loaf and place in a bread loaf pan (6X3") that has been greased or sprayed with Pam. Bake at 350 for 40 minutes. Broil for a few minutes to crisp up the top if you prefer a slight crust on your salmon loaf.  Optional:  Make a simple white sauce with or without pea's to top your Salmon Loaf (just like Grandma used to make!).

Top with a white sauce to which you've added a peas and/or some cheese.

Simple White Sauce

2 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon white pepper
1/8 teaspoon paprika
3/4 cup milk
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 cup frozen pea's - thawed

Microwave the butter until melted; add the flour and seasonings, then the milk and lemon juice. Microwave 4-5 minutes, stirring after each minute. Add 1/2 cup peas. Stir and serve over salmon.
