This is a quick, easy recipe to make. Very delicious and very satisfying. I serve it with peas and cinnamon applesauce.

  • 12 teaspoon salt
  • 1 dash pepper
  • 1 small chopped onion

  • 12 teaspoon sage (optional)

We enjoyed this salmon loaf very much, nice and moist. I made it from a left over baked salmon we had instead of canned. Turned out great. I did double the lemon juice and changed the sage to dill, personal preference. We also left the crackers off the top, didn't really need it, and i wanted to try a chopped egg sauce i found by Lorac. It did go very nicely with your salmon loaf. Thanks for sharing, it was very good.

This was quite tasty. I did find it called for a few things which were a little tedious. Buttered bread crumbs for example. The extra butter at the end--unnecessary. The fish is oily as it is, so the bread crumbs alone will be fine next time, in addition to not adding the last melted butter. I used egg replacer, non-hydrogenated margarine, and soymilk. Next time I will add less salt, more pepper, more sage. This time I used dried parsley also, next time fresh (maybe fresh sage too). I'll probably use shallots next time too, instead of regular onions, and minced fine. Didn't use a topping and didn't cover it. Because the fish, again, is oily, no topping or cover is needed, nor is any sauce. The loaf gets a nice crispy little curst on it. Next time I might try a free form loaf on a cookie sheet, as I did find it a tad difficult to get pieces out of the loaf pan, but then that could be because I could've cooked it longer and/or because I used non-dairy substitutes.

This is a great salmon loaf recipe. I was looking for one that tasted like my mom's. This was even better. I didn't put the cracker topping on and was pleasantly surprised at the unique taste of the sage. This is definitely added to our list of regular recipes. Thanks!
