Recipe Seafood Friday Salmon Loaf

I’ve been cooking seafood at least twice a week for quite some time now. Not just because it’s so good but also for the health benefits. I’m always experimenting with seafood so we don’t end up eating the same meal over and over and I want to share a recipe for a one dish meal that we have enjoyed from the first time I made it. Each time I’ve used different vegetables, for example the last time I used baby carrots and fresh snap beans. I also use different starches. You really just can’t go wrong with your choices. I’ve made the salmon mixture up as I’ve gone along trying different things each time until I came up with a recipe I just love and have stuck with.

The longest item it takes to prepare for this one dish meal is the rice so I started it first. Normally I would use yellow or brown rice however since it takes longer to cook brown rice and I’m out of yellow, this time I used 1 cup of white long grain rice. It depends on how many you have to feed and what your preference is when it comes to rice. Scalloped potatoes would have been an alternative consideration but this rain is making these joints ache so I didn’t want to peel potatoes.

Before I go any further, Abby wanted to “write” down her part of this recipe before her mommy picked her up *mimi moves aside and lets Abby take over*.


The above ummm.. inscription/instruction/jabber is the most important part of the meal. She has already left for the weekend but I saved her instructions… My interpretation of it is to make sure I have candles stocked (no kido’s tonight). I could be wrong.

Moving on…

Salmon Loaf
The white stuff;
Rice (1 cup)

Salmon Mix;
1 can of salmon, don’t drain, do debone
bread crumbs
McCormick rosemary
McCormick lemon extract
salt & pepper to taste

whole tomatoes

I used bread that I made in my breadmaker for the breadcrumbs simply because it’s one of the few things that Abby will sit still for so I make it OFTEN especially on back aching days when I need to rest. She keeps her nose at the windows just willing the bread machine to hurry up while I’m “daring” it to. I used one slice for the breadcrumbs. I guess that would be equivalent to 2 slices of regular bread.

I then added a pinch of rosemary to the bread crumbs.

A few drops of McCormick Pure Lemon Extract. I love the little spout on this, I just tapped the top of the bottle and a few drops poured out. Tap tap.

I whisked my egg a little before adding it to the breadcrumbs. I saved the wrong photo so obviously this is “pre” whisked. It happens. Often.

I de-boned the Salmon and dumped the juice and salmon in my mixture.

I sprinkled a little salt and pepper, not much at all because this dish is packed with flavor. I topped it off with Parsley which I use in EVERYTHING.

I prepared the asparagus by washing well, cutting it in half, drizzling with a little bit of Devo Olive Oil, wild mushroom and sage flavor, and sprinkled on some Bacon Salt. I sliced some tomatoes.

I lightly greased the loaf pan with Devo Oilive Oil, wild mushroom and sage flavor and started layering the dish.
Rice & Parsley

I topped it off with a little more parsley. I covered it and popped in the fridge. Done. So quick, so easy, so flavorful.

For the sake of Abby who don’t like to feel left out of anything I made up 2 of these loafs so she could help me. She was going to a special luncheon and didn’t get to try hers however I did after she left. Delicious.

I hope you get the chance to try this one day soon. If you do be sure to tell me what tips and tricks you used in place of mine.

  1. There are 3 types of fish i like, salmon, swordfish and darn i cant remember anyway, although i like salmon im not sure if i would like the canned salmon. I think you are very creative when it comes to cooking and i know my family would love this dish.

  2. Kat Meller says:

    This one sounds pretty good – except for the fact that my family doesn’t eat fish ….. shellfish maybe / some not all but no fish. I know I have a strange family. But I will keep this in mind for when I want something just for me. Thanks for sharing

    • Ha, I can’t get my daughter to eat fish at all. She broke out one time really bad from shrimp and I can’t convince her that fish is okay just not shellfish.

  3. Tammy S says:

    This sounds good. You cook like I do, a little of this a little of that. I am always adding and changing recipes. I would have to take out the asparagus, the kids won’t eat it. I think I will try it with broccoli. Thanks for the recipe. :)

  4. Grandma Bonnie says:

    Awesome recipe. My family recipe does not sound this good. I am going to try yours. I bet my husband will like this much better.

  5. Terry says:

    That sounds really good. I think it is something my Hubs would enjoy too.
