Tips on Making Baked Salmon Loaf

It’s easy to make this baked salmon loaf recipe, especially if you’re familiar with making meatloaf. With this recipe, however, there are some fun tasting variations that you can try to make it even better. We also listed some helpful tips and reminders for when you’re making this recipe.


  • Remove the remaining bones in the salmon flakes. Whether you used fresh or canned salmon to make the flakes, make sure that it’s picked clean through the bones. Start with discarding the large round bones, then use tweezers to remove the smaller ones. 
  • Use a baking sheet as an alternative to loaf pan. With clean hands, shape the salmon mixture into a loaf. Then, carefully place the shaped salmon mixture onto the greased baking sheet. 
  • Add in dill weed for an exciting variation. Add about a teaspoon of dry dill weed into the salmon mixture for that guaranteed subtle fresh herb-like taste.
  • Substitute bread crumbs with crushed crackers. Bread crumbs are necessary bread filler ingredients. If you don’t have one at hand, then you can substitute it with crushed crackers or crushed cornflakes.
