This delicious hearty soup can be made using either fresh cooked salmon or canned. It has a tomato base rather than a cream one. This page contains a Pacific salmon chowder recipe.

Drain liquid from salmon into measuring cup. Set aside to use as part of liquid. Turn salmon into bowl and flake. Add minced onion, seasonings, milk and reserved salmon liquid. Mix lightly.

Very easy to make and an ideal meal when you are busy. Perfect for on the go because you could eat this salad at room temperature or cold. You can make this salad into a sandwich with sandwich slices, hot dog buns, hamburger buns or even serve as an appetizer over crackers.


It is very versatile!

This is one of my favourite meal: Salmon Loaf and Scalloped potatoes. They cook at the same temp so it is just a matter of timing each. All together the meal takes about 1 hour and 15 minutes:


1/2 c. dry bread crumbs or craker crumbs
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1 lb(large) can of salmon, with broth, flaked OR 2 small cans.
Dash pepper
1/2 tsp sage
2 tsp finely chopped onion or same amount dried onion flakes
1 tbsp finely chopped celery OR dried chopped parsley OR celery seed to taste.
Combine all ingredients in order given. Paked firmly into a greased loaf pan or casserole and bake at 350*F for 30-40 minutes
4 large or 6 medium potates, peeled if old, scrubbed and skin on if new.
1/2 small onion, sliced thinly into rings
Lightly grease a casserole dish, one with a lid.
Thinly slice potatoes, layering with onion rings
Sprinkle generously with flour and salt and pepper to taste
Dot with butter or marg.
Repeat this layering 3 more times, dividing onion and potato slices accordingly. Finish with flour, salt and pepper and dotted with marg.

Pouring from one side or corner of the casserole and watching the opposite side, add milk until you can see milk on the other side or corner. Cover.
Bake in preheated 350*F oven for 1 hour. Remove the lid from the casserole and bake for a further 15 minutes to brown the top and edges.
To cook salmon loaf and scalloped potatoes together, do the following:
Place potatoes in the preheated 350* oven for 35 minutes.
After that time, slide in the salmon loaf for 25 minutes.
Remove the lid from the potatoes after that time and cook both for another 15 minutes.
