1 can (16 ounces) salmon
1 cup packaged bread stuffing
1 egg, well beaten
1 tablespoon minced parsley
1 small onion, minced
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon Tabasco sauce
1 cup hot cooked peas
1 cup hot Medium White Sauce (see Index L)
Set oven for moderately hot, 375°. Grease a 6 1/4 x 3 3/4 x 2 1/4- inch loaf pan.
Drain the salmon, saving liquor. Remove the large bones and flake the salmon with a fork. Put the bread stuffing in a bowl. Mix the reserved liquor with enough milk to make 1 1/4 cups liquid. Pour the milk mixture over stuffing and let stand until liquid is absorbed. Add the salmon, egg, parsley, onion, salt and Tabasco sauce to stuffing mixture; mix well. Pack the salmon mixture into the greased loaf pan. Bake salmon mixture 40 minutes or until center is firm. Unmold the loaf on a hot platter; keep warm until served. Mix the peas with the white sauce and pour part of the sauce over the loaf; serve remainder on the side. Garnish loaf with parsley, if desired. Makes 4 to 6 servings.
