Oh I agree. I've always made my salmon loaf with canned salmon, & always include any skin & bones, which are completely edible & very nutritious.

Im thinking you could make them with any crab cake recipe but using salmon.

Hi Connie. Here are a few I've saved in my recipe files. I usually wind up with tuna, because I don't like the bones.

Saucy Salmon Loaf

1 can (15 oz/426 g) pink salmon, drained (reserve broth)
2 cups soft bread crumbs (about 3 slices) 500 mL
1/4 cup finely chopped onion 50 mL
1/3 cup chopped fresh parsley 75 mL
2/3 tsp dried tarragon or savory 3 mL
3 eggs
1/4 tsp each salt and pepper 1 mL
3/4 cup hot liquid (salmon broth and milk) 175 mL

Cheese Sauce
2 tbsp butter 30 mL
2 tbsp all purpose flour 30 mL
Salt, dry mustard and cayenne pepper, to taste
1 1/4 cups milk 300 mL
1/2 cup shredded Cheddar or Swiss cheese 125 mL

In a large bowl, flake salmon with a fork, crushing skin and bones. Add bread crumbs, onion, parsley and tarragon. Mix well. Place mixture in a well greased non-stick 8 1/2 x 4 1/2-inch (21 x 12 cm) loaf pan. Beat together eggs, salt and pepper until eggs are just blended. Stir in hot liquid. Pour over salmon mixture in loaf pan. Bake in a 350° F (180° C) oven for 30 to 35 minutes or until firm. Loosen loaf with a spatula and turn out of pan.

Meanwhile, make cheese sauce. Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir in flour and seasonings. Stir in milk. Cook stirring constantly until sauce thickens and comes to a boil. Cook 1 minute longer. Remove from heat. Add cheese and stir until smooth. Serve with salmon loaf.

Know you've already made your cakes, but this is one I wanted to share.

Serving Size : 4

2 cans (14.75 oz. each) salmon
1 Tablespoon peanut or canola oil
¾ cup diced yellow onion
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 teaspoons seeded and minced jalapeño pepper
1-1/2 teaspoons minced lemon grass
Juice and zest of ½ lime
1 Tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon soy sauce
2 teaspoons sugar
1-1/2 cups finely sliced green onions
¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro
2 eggs
3 Tablespoons cornstarch
Salt and pepper to taste

Drain and chunk Salmon. Heat oil in small saucepan over medium-low heat. Add onion and cook until soft, about 3-5 minutes. Add garlic, jalapeño pepper and lemon grass; cook an additional 1-2 minutes. Cool.

In large bowl, combine lime juice and zest, soy sauce, sugar, green onions and cilantro. Mix well and reserve. In small bowl, whisk eggs. Add cornstarch, salt and pepper; mix. Add egg and cooled onion mixtures to large bowl; fold gently to mix. Add salmon and carefully fold until just combined.

Form salmon mixture into 8 cakes (3 oz. each) and chill for at least 30 minutes. Pan fry salmon cakes in oil over medium heat for 2-3 minutes per side, or until heated through. Serve hot with Hot and Sour Sauce.


2 Tablespoons sugar
2 Tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon rice vinegar
2 Tablespoons chili sauce (sambal or roasted)
1 Tablespoon fresh chopped cilantro

Dissolve sugar in vinegar. Add chili and cilantro; mix together. Makes ½ cup.

Thanks for the recipes, Mish. I'm going to have to try a salmon loaf soon. That's a good twist on the salmon patties also.
We get by with a little help from our friends
