Photo Source: Andrea Knight @mediumandreaknight

Delicious and really easy to make, this is a quick spin on my Grandma’s recipe, salmon loaf. Takes about 15 minutes to assemble and sautee without optional sauce.

Ingredients

  • 1 can salmon or tuna 12 oz or 2 5oz
  • 1 tsp grey poupon or whole ground mustard
  • 1 tsp yellow mustard
  • 1 tbsp panko crumbs (can be removed to make it gluten free or use almond flour)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Dash of salt and pepper to taste

Optional sauce (Grandma Ladwig’s recipe)

  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 tbsps flour
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 tsp yellow mustard
  • 1 tsp ketchup
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 paprika
  • 1 egg

Combine all ingredients and form into patties. Heat a sautee pan with olive oil until the oil pops in the pan, about medium heat (2 to low on gas stoves power burner). Fry in sautee pan on both sides until browned. Should not take long, maybe a minute or two on both sides. Top with lemon butter, or the sauce below, and have paired with a light salad.

Optional sauce instructions

Melt butter in a saucepan at medium heat. Add 2 tablespoons flour and stir constantly to mix well for 1 to 2 minutes. Gradually add 1 cup of milk and stir constantly to make smooth and thick. Turn heat to low. Add mustard, ketchup, salt and paprika. Stir until blended and smooth. At last minute, turn off heat and add one egg. Stir and blend thoroughly. Do not reheat. Serve over salmon cakes or on the side.

Salmon, Shrimp and Portabella Mushroom Ponchatrain Recipe, Gluten Free

This is a lovely, rich filling recipe for those of you on carb reduction meal plans such as keto, South Beach, etc. Gluten free, low carb. I had this in a New Orleans restaurant and decide to make it home for myself.

Salmon, Shrimp and Portabella Mushroom Ponchatrain Recipe

1/4 cup butter

1/4 cup half & half or heavy cream

Tsp of garlic, minced

1/2 cup spinach leaves

1 tsp parsley

Ground pepper to taste

1/2 cup portabella mushrooms

Diced tomato

Fish or chicken

Melt the butter in a saucepan and saute your garlic and mushrooms. Add your quarter cup of cream or half-and-half. I find half and half to be rich enough for me but you can add heavy cream if you would like it to be creamier. Add other spices and wilt the spinach in the sauce. A squeeze of lemon could be added here if you wish but I find it’s not necessary and not part of the original recipe.

Pour over chicken and shrimp, fish and crab meat, or fish and shrimp. This goes great on vegetables as well.
