Hello ZestyCook readers! My name is Marianne, and you can find me over at from french fries to flax seeds. Food has been a passion of mine since I was a little kid, and more recently I’ve really become interested in healthy eating and finding that balance between nutrition and pleasure. I am currently working on a career change, and will be (hopefully) starting my program to become a Registered Dietitian next September.
When Zesty put the call out for some guest posts, I jumped on the chance to share a family favorite recipe with you all. It was featured on my blog a little while back, and I had a few requests for the recipe then. It definitely falls in line with the types of recipes Zesty features on his blog – quick, readily available ingredients, and more specifically – it tastes great.
Can you tell this is one well used recipe around here?
Salmon Loaf (serves 4)
- 2 Cans (213 g) salmon (wild sockeye is preferred, but wild pink salmon is good as well)
- 6 – 7 Soda crackers, crumbled
- 1 Tsp. lemon juice
- 3 Tbsp. milk
- 1 Tbsp. melted butter
- Pepper to taste
- 2 eggs
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
- Mix all ingredients, except eggs.
- Beat eggs until fluffy, then fold into mixture.
- Spread mixture into small loaf pan.
- Bake for 45 min, or until golden and crispy on top.
You could definitely jazz up the recipe with other herbs and spices, but we like it as is, with just a sprinkle of lemon juice. The recipe doubles well, and the leftovers make great sandwiches. If you like salmon, you should definitely give it a try!
Thanks Marianne (from french fries to flax seeds) for introducing me to a new idea! I have never had such a loaf but I know from the ingredients I would love it. I hope everyone has a great Wednesday and be sure to let me know what you think of this creative creation.
