Pink Salmon Loaf

The basic baked salmon loaf is made from a 15 ounce can of pink salmon, a less expensive option then red salmon,  bread crumbs, eggs and spices. Salmon loaf is delicious with tartar sauce or white sauce served with it. This is an old recipe for salmon loaf from my childhood.  It was a Lent favorite and inexpensive main course.

White sauce recipe with tarragon can be found here.

      1. OMG that is exactly what I do! I live on Lake Erie and use to have a boat but have fished most of my life. Now give me a smoked fish and I will devour it…especially smoke catfish!

    I love traditional recipes. This is something I will make, as soon as I can put bread back in my diet (16 days to go…) 🙂

      This was something my mother made. I still have the loaf pan that she used which is smaller then a standard bread pan. I think the recipe came out of magazine before WWII. Thanks for your comment.

    I made this Pink Salmon Loaf recipe for dinner tonight, and it was excellent. And it’s so easy to make. At first, I was skeptical that a single 14.5-oz can of salmon would make a loaf big enough to serve 6 people. But it did, and the servings were not skimpy in the least. Thanks for sharing the recipe! We enjoyed it. 5 stars!

      Thank you. I started writing this food blog to share recipes to people I knew who needed ideas in very low budget meals that is good. Most of my recipes fall in the low end of the budget. When I was talked into this I was told to use this site would be better then face book because the recipes would stay available. This is one of those surprising dishes that is a main coarse that will feed a family.
