This is great with a creamed pea sauce, which is basically a white sauce with peas. I think it is from a old Betty Crocker Cookbook from the 1950's. I have tweaked it to make it mine. I like to serve mashed potatoes with it. (Just an observation: The original recipe calls for 16 oz. cans of salmon. The ones in my pantry are 14.75 oz. Just like everything else, the sizes are getting smaller.)

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
I saw this recipe and thought of a salmon croquette recipe my husbands grandmother used to make. The taste is similar, but without the deep frying.

This loaf had a nice, delicate salmon taste. This would pair nicely with rice and a green veggie for a tasty dinner or luncheon meal. Next time I may add a sauce with this (for example, thinned down cream of mushroom soup). I will definitely be making this again!
