This is such a simple recipe and the fact that you can make it in the slow cooker means it is ideal for busy weeknights or any time you want to make dinner in advance and let it slowly cook itself to perfection. And perfection is just what you get when you make this healthy salmon loaf. You can vary the ingredients if you like, perhaps switching the celery for bell pepper or mushrooms, or using another kind of broth. Pour a can of celery soup over the top an hour before the end of the cooking time if you want this dish to be more moist. It is not dry with or without this optional step but it is up to you whether to add more soup or not.
This is an economical recipe as well as a flavorful one. Just because it calls for canned salmon instead of fresh fish, do not assume the overall taste is not going to be good because, honestly, this is a really flavorful dish. Salmon is yummy already and then the mustard, cheese and other ingredients add all the backup flavors you need. The kids will love this recipe too.
If you are not going to add a can of soup to the slow cooker an hour before the end of the cooking time, you might like to make a sauce to serve with this salmon loaf. Anything fruit-based, cream-based, or mustard-based (to echo the mustard in the salmon loaf) would work. In short, pretty much any sauce would be nice with this, but especially fruity or creamy ones.
- 14 ¾ oz can salmon
- 1 cup grated parmesan
- 2 cups seasoned stuffing croutons
- ¼ teaspoon ground mustard
- 2 beaten eggs
- 2 sliced celery stalks
- 1 cup chicken broth
- Cut three strips of heavy duty aluminum foil, measuring 20 by 3 inches.
- Arrange them across the base and up the sides of a cooking spray-coated 3 quart crockpot.
- Combine the parmesan, croutons, mustard, eggs, celery, and chicken broth.
- Drain the can of salmon, discarding any skin or bones, and stir it into the chicken broth mixture.
- Shape the mixture into a round loaf and put it in the crockpot, on top of the foil strips.
- Cover and cook for 5 hours on low or until a thermometer reads 160 degrees F.
- Transfer the loaf to a platter, using the foil strips as handles.
Serve this wholesome salmon loaf with broccoli and rice, as shown in the picture, or with any other side dishes you like. You could even serve mac and cheese with it or something with potatoes. This is comfort food at its finest and the moist, satisfying fishy loaf is perfect with whatever you fancy having alongside it. Do not forget the mayonnaise, ketchup, or sauce. This is already a succulent, juicy recipe but adding a squeeze of sauce will finish it off to perfection. If you are looking for canned salmon recipes, look no further; this salmon loaf is a winner.
