Blast From The Past – Salmon Loaf

After getting home from work, brewing up some vanilla rooibos tea, and settling in front of the TV with the laptop for some LA Ink, I knew I wanted to write about something. The problem was, I didn’t know what exactly I wanted to write about. I keep a notebook where I jot down blog ideas and thoughts, as well as things I have planned, just to make sure I don’t forget about them. But most of them would have involved more time than I had to devote to them this evening. I considered just not doing up a post, but that didn’t feel right either. So I kept thumbing through the pages of my notebook, and found a list of recipes I wanted to post. My eyes focused on one in particular – Salmon Loaf.


I could believe I hadn’t posted this family favourite yet! I quickly checked my blog history to make sure I truly hadn’t ever posted the recipe, and confirmed that as fact. Sure, I guest posted the recipe over at ZestyCook, but I hadn’t posted it in my own piece of the blogosphere. My mind was made up – I was going to remedy this situation ASAP!


In fact, inspection of my blog archives showed that we haven’t had this delicious meal since July. Unacceptable if you ask me. I mean, check out the recipe card!

A sure sign a recipe is worth sharing – the recipe card is very well loved.

So without further adieu, I present to you….Salmon Loaf!


Salmon Loaf

serves 4 – 6

Don’t let the name put you off – this is really good! And you probably have all the ingredients in your cupboards. Perfect for a weeknight meal, and a tasty way to get in your Omega-3 fatty acids. Try it out – you’ll like it.

  • 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
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Mix all ingredients, except eggs.
  3. Beat eggs until fluffy, then fold into mixture.
  4. Spread mixture into small loaf pan.
  5. Bake for 45 min, or until golden and crispy on top.

Notes: Feel free to jazz up the loaf with herbs and spices, but it’s also delicious as is. The recipe doubles well, and makes excellent sandwiches the day after. Be sure to serve drizzled with a little lemon juice.

    My Aunt Enid made Salmon Loaf on one of our visits. I am truly not a fan of salmon since working on B.C Salmon farm b.c (before children) and was skeptical of the meal. Turned out I was soooo wrong. I had to get the recipe. Now I own my own catering and meals to go business and guess what is on the menu….only I tried to locate the recipe and it is somewhere else not to be found at this time…googling Salmon Loaf and this recipe pops up…I think it is exactly the same recipe….Thank you 🙂 My customers thank you. 🙂
