Salmon Loaf: For humans and cats

This "tandem" recipe is designed for human consumption and is actually quite tasty. The addition of brewer's yeast and bonemeal is designed to boost the protein and calcium content for cats.

For people:

  • 12-ounce can salmon, skinned, boned and drained
  • 1/2 cup evaporated skim milk
  • 2 slices white bread, cut into small cubes
  • 2 eggs, slightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped celery
  • 1/2 teaspoon dill
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon thyme
  • Dash salt and pepper
  • 1 tablespoon melted butter

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Combine all the ingredients except the butter in a medium-sized mixing bowl and stir well. Fold in the melted butter.

Grease an 8 1/2-by-4 1/2-by-2 1/2-inch glass loaf pan, spoon in the salmon mixture and smooth the top. Bake for 35 to 45 minutes, or until the loaf is firm in the center. Loosen from the sides of the pan with a spatula and invert onto a serving platter. Serve plain or with Dill Sauce. Makes about 3 to 4 human servings.

Dill Sauce: Combine 1 cup sour cream or plain yogurt, 2/3 cup peeled, seeded and finely chopped cucumber, 2 tablespoons sugar, 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard, 1 tablespoon dill weed, 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Refrigerate for 30 minutes before serving.

Salmon Loaf For Kitty

  • 2/3 cup Salmon Loaf, cooled
  • 1/2 teaspoon bonemeal, or half of the bones removed from the canned salmon if they are soft
  • 1/2 teaspoon brewer's yeast

Break up the Salmon Loaf into kitty-bite-size pieces.

Mix in the bonemeal or salmon bones (if soft) and the brewer's yeast. Serve cool.

Makes 1 or 2 kitty servings.
