Fishermen love meat loaf. The leftover meat loaf sandwiches the next day are great. So why not make a meat loaf using fish?
I once had a Fish Loaf at an event where I was putting on a fishing seminar in Wilkes Barre, Pennsylvania. This area is famous for great cooks and recipes. The meal for the vendors and presenters was amazing. When I was loading my plate, I came by his recipe.
2 cups of flaked cooked/ poached fish.
½ cup of cracker crumbs
1 cup of milk
2 beaten eggs.
¼ cup of Tomato Soup
¼ cup of water
Salt and pepper. I also use Old Bay seafood seasoning to taste.
Blend the fish, crumbs, milk, eggs, and seasonings. Form into a loaf. Bake for 10 minutes at 350 degrees.
Mix the soup, water, over the loaf and continue to bake for 20 minutes more.
You can bake the loaf over the fire in foil, using a Dutch Oven, in a foil covered fry pan, or in a smoker grill. Flavors can be changed to meet your tastes, but fish is a mild flavor that is often good on its own.
A sauce can also enhance the Fish Loaf. Try different sauces that you already enjoy. Maybe a tasty Tartar, Bang Bang, Dill, or seafood sauce.
Make this tasty dish your own!
