      The title of this recipe "Easy Salmon Loaf", is way to humble. Lemon Salmon Mousse would be more appropriate. This is easy, value conscious and would be a proud addition to any special occasion buffet, do yourself a favor and try this one NOW!

      Easy to make and delicious. I also disagree with the serving sizes. I would say it serves no more than 4.

      This reminds me so much of my grandmother's salmon loaf. I made it for my family last night and everybody loved it. It is seasoned very mildly but has a good comfort food richness that I thought was great. The sauce is creamy and rich, too. Brings back some fond memories and I will be using this one a lot from now on. Glad I found it. Thanks Nurse Di.
