This was quite good. I used an addition 6 oz can of salmon. When you finish picking out the bones and undesireable stomach fat there isn't enough salmon left. Since I use sweet onions I increased to 1 cup. Green bell pepper is a little strong for this mild recipe and I would reduce to 1/3 cup next time. One dash of hot sauce is not enough. I use Frank's because it does not linger in your mouth. I used four dashes of hot sauce but should have used 5 to 6. Read More

I felt this recipe had way to many crackers in it. Tasted a bit dry and bland. I would make it again and add an extra egg and 1/2 the crackers Read More

I converted this recipe for 100 people to use for a community soup kitchen and it was a smash hit! I was a bit concerned about using the hot pepper sauce but I needn't have worried...the salmon loaf was not spicy at all. It was delicious! The only thing we did differently was sprinkled crushed crackers and melted butter over the top. It was so well liked that everyone was asking for the recipe! Thanks LeChefRene we will definitely be making this again! Read More

Four star salmon loaf without a doubt. Add a tablespoon of chopped fresh dill and you've got a five-star on your hands. Thanks for sharing this one! Read More

This was excellent! I actually left out the crackers altogether because I'm on a low-carb diet and it turned out just great. After the 45 minutes, I broiled it for 8 minutes or until it browned. I also made a drizzly sauce out of the juice from the can. I put in a little no fat sour cream, pepper, and lime and drizzled it over a slice while it was still boiling. It was the perfect addition. It did feel gourmet!!! Read More

Best salmon loaf I ever had. It's a great dish to take to potlucks & such. Everyone (that likes salmon) raves! The first time I made it I accidently used twice the milk it called for & I think I like it better with more milk. Then I served it with a red chili mayo. DELISH! Thank you! Read More

this was delicious. I think it needs some kind of a light creamy lemony sauce - I will have to play around with a sauce for next time. I used 2 frozen (cooked) filets (from the big bag from Sam's Club) broken up with a fork & it was the perfect amount of salmon. cooked it in an 8x8 pan. don't omit the hot sauce it gives it just a hint of spice that is a nice complement to the fish.

Made this last night for my "not-too-fond-of-fish" DH. He said it was OK translation excellent. I did make some substitutions based on what I had on hand. I precooked 2 frozen salmon filets in the microwave instead of using canned; used red bell pepper instead of green and used blended stove top stuffing crumbs instead of saltines. I used the loaf pan as recommended by others. Served with rice and asparagus all it was missing was a dill sauce that I will add next time. I thought it was superb! Read More
