This was one of my mom's favorite "Raid the Pantry" dishes. I use toasted Panko instead of Regular Bread crumbs, and I add dill and lemon zest. If you use regular bread crumbs, drop 1 TB of butter from the recipe. The picture isn't great, but I was in a hurry and I was really messy when I mixed it up... It looks burnt around the edges, but it was the dark brown crispyness.

This sounds a lot like my mom's salmon loaf, which I like. However, I add a white sauce with lemon and lemon-pepper to top the loaf...makes it moist and a bit spicier. Thanks for posting. Bonjody
