  • This loaf was easy and delicious. Only changes I made were one egg instead of three, and I added 2 tbsp. dill juice from the pickle jar. Try it…you’ll like it.

  • I love salmon loaf and have been making it for years. In my recipe, I use 2 eggs and separate them. The beaten yolks get added with the other ingredients and I also add a little lemon juice and dill to taste. I beat the egg whites and fold them in before placing it all in the pan. The salmon loaf is light like a soufflé. Yummy!

  • Hello, thank you for this recipe. I would like to try the recipe this week. I was wondering if we can freeze it? I’m single and I don’t want to waste any of it so I thought about freezing half of it. Thank you.

    • Hi Brigitte…I haven’t tried freezing it, but I think it should be fine. I would love to hear how it works out if you do.
