Pacific Salmon Loaf

For this fall session, I’ll try to attend another community kitchen so that I can learn more variety of recipes from a different group. I’ll be going to Minoo’s group at Caring Place on Thursday morning every other week.

Minoo shared two recipes this week. The recipes are Pacific Salmon Loaf and Blueberry Muffins. The Pacific Salmon Loaf in this recipe uses can salmon but you may use any left over baked salmon or even can tuna. The Salmon Loaf is served with a cucumber sauce.

Blue Fjord Salmon from DinnerWorks.com

This is about the other meal we got from DinnerWorks.com. It is called the Blue Fjord Salmon. Although it is frozen salmon, it is surprisingly very good. The meat was flaky and moist while the skin was really crisp.

In this meal assembly, we get six individually packed Wild Sockeye Salmon fillets. Since six is a bit too much for us, we had earlier split the order into three and three. The meal assembly includes the salmon and the Blue Fjord marinade.

The salmon are frozen. However, we were told that fish frozen at sea and thawed in the refrigerator is as good than fresh market fish for flavor and texture. This info is new to us. What do you think — is that right?

Baked Mayonnaise Salmon

The second recipe which Vanessa shared with us in this week’s cooking club is Baked Salmon. She got the recipe from a friend in Seattle.

Salmon is a popular food, and reasonably healthy due to its high protein and Omega-3 fatty acids content and to its overall low fat levels. We had the chance to see a salmon run in Adams River before and it was so awesome seeing thousands of salmon spawn and then die. It will be a “dominant year” this year — this happens once every four years where up to millions of salmons is expected.
