Need a "fancy" salmon loaf recipe!

  • 2

Desperately seeking a salmon loaf recipe that is a little fancier than the rest - maybe with crab, shrimp and a dill sauce? Or maybe a loaf with interesting spices?

Does anyone have a good salmon loaf recipe?

Big thanks!

    * 1 Cup bread crumbs
    * 2 scallions, chopped
    * 2 Cups fresh spinach, chopped
    * 2 eggs (or egg substitute)
