This recipe will epitomize old-time cafeteria food for many
people--for better or worse. It's like a tuna casserole made
with canned salmon. Recipe card dated September 1949.
Active Work Time: 25 minutes * Total Preparation Time: 1 hour
1 (14 3/4-ounce) can salmon
1 egg yolk
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup fine bread crumbs
1 cup diced celery
1/2 teaspoon paprika
3 tablespoons butter, melted
1 egg white
1/3 cup mayonnaise
* Drain salmon, reserving liquid. Combine liquid with enough milk to make 1 1/2 cups. Beat egg yolk and combine with milk, salmon liquid and salt.
* Flake salmon. Fill buttered 8-inch square baking pan with 1/2 of crumbs, then celery, flaked salmon and remaining crumbs. Sprinkle with paprika and melted butter. Evenly distribute milk-egg liquid over all and bake at 500 degrees until top is golden, about 20 minutes.
* Beat egg white until stiff and fold in mayonnaise. Spread lightly and evenly over baked salmon. Return to hot oven (or place under broiler) until golden brown, about 5 minutes.
