Dinner and a Movie

by Ally Harding, 9:33 AM
Consider this a seafood version of meatloaf. Theo and I were very surprised how tasty it was. Plus I had all the ingredients on hand so that's always a plus!

{Salmon Burger Loaf}
2-3 servings
adapted from Costco Cookbook 2013


3 frozen salmon burgers, cooked according to package
3/4 cup panko bread crumbs
1/4 cup chopped green onions or chives
2 eggs
1/4 cup low fat milk (I used original unsweetened almond milk)
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
1/2 teaspoon black pepper


Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Coat a loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray.
Flake salmon burgers and place in a medium bowl. Add bread crumbs, green onions, eggs, milk, olive oil, lemon zest, and pepper. Mix well. Press the mixture into the prepared pan. Bake, uncovered for 20-25 minutes, or until lightly browned and set. 

Since it is a Costco cookbook, they obviously recommend using their own products. We happened to have their salmon burgers in our freezer but I'm sure you could use any brand. 

I also had this massive box of Panko bread crumbs in my pantry, also from Costco. You would be surprised how often I used these in recipes. They're a good thing to have on hand.

The recipe says to use Tarter sauce or any other sauce you have. We didn't have any to use but the loaf was really moist on its own. Theo said it was one thing short of being really good. Not sure what else we should add next time, I'm just glad he approved! I personally loved the hint of lemon from the lemon zest. These will be on rotation in our house for sure.

I served the salmon loaf with The Best Brussels Sprouts I talked about on Monday.


3 cups Brussels sprouts, halved
1 tsp black pepper
1 tsp garlic salt
2 tablespoons of olive oil
1/4 cup seasoned bread crumbs (I used the Panko bread crumbs above and added some Italian seasoning)


Add Brussels sprouts, black pepper, olive oil, and garlic salt to a skillet. Cook on low and cover allowing the Brussels sprouts to brown on each side before flipping. After about 10 minutes, add more olive oil and bread crumbs. Cook for another 10 minutes flipping occasionally. The edges should turn brown. Serve and eat! 

The whole meal was really tasty and decently healthy. Theo said he prefers brussels sprouts roasted in the oven over this style but it was a nice change. 


In case you forgot about this movie, let me refresh your memory

This is that movie. Now you remember! The movie's about sex addicts and Gwyneth comes into the picture as Mark Ruffalo's new girlfriend. He's a recovering sex addict and hasn't had sex, or done anything sexual, in 5 years. It was a pretty good movie. I'd give it a 6/10. It kept me entertained but the ending was kind of strange. Gwyneth basically walks around in next to nothing the whole movie, the girls got a rocking body, so your husband/significant other will be happy!

  1. A year ago I would have never thought of making this recipe, but now it looks yummy! My tastes have changed :) I want to see that movie, too.

  2. This recipe sounds like something we would love! We do something sort of similar with Tuna but I think I'd like salmon better haha -ps I've never seen that movie!

  3. I love the idea of meatloaf but I'm not a big ground beef fan so I will definitely be trying this!

  4. I'm not big on salmon but that does look really good!! I just don't know how to cook anything seafood-related so I think that holds me back! I've never seen that movie, was that yours or Theo's pick? haha :)

  5. The word loaf makes me laugh. It is an odd word. Perk loves salmon, me not so much.

  6. Can't do a loaf (per Trey) or salmon (personal issue) but that movie and some sprouts are worth a try :)

  7. I totally forgot about those Salmon burgers from Costco.....we use to always buy those and I think we need to add that back to our shopping list!
