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.

Hi, my name is Christine. I am happy you are visiting today. Food is very important to everyone, and in this family we love to eat all kinds of dishes from meat and chicken to international cuisine, crockpot creations and more. Seafood is something we also love, and I love the fact it is nutritious as well as very tasty.

Everyone knows 'the big three' which are cod, tuna and salmon, but sometimes it is fun to try different types of fish, such as perch, trout, monkfish, or even shellfish like mussels or clams. There are seafood recipes for every season and occasion, those served chilled for a refreshing burst of flavor, and those served hot in stew or soup form.

Choose from crispy fried fish, tender pan-fried or poached cuts, or what about a seafood medley boasting the most wonderful flavors of the sea, lake or river? Seafood can be served as part of a salad or savory dish, or it can be served as an appetizer or snack. Bacon-wrapped scallops, anyone? You will find a comprehensive collection of wonderful seafood recipes right here, for your inspiration and enjoyment.

Thanks for visiting,
