Oat Salmon Loaf with Pomegranate Glaze


    Oat Salmon Loaf with Pomegranate Glaze

    Using oats and omega-3-rich salmon is a nutritional step up from the typical ground beef and bread crumb mixture. The pomegranate glaze adds a sophisticated touch.


    3 - 160 g (5.6 oz) cans wild salmon, drained
    2 large free-range eggs, lightly beaten
    1 cup (250 mL) rolled or quick-cook oats
    1 large carrot, grated
    1 shallot, finely chopped
    2 garlic cloves, minced
    1/4 cup (60 mL) chopped flat-leaf parsley
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1 Tbsp (15 mL) prepared horseradish (optional)
    1/4 tsp (1 mL) salt
    1/4 tsp (1 mL) ground black pepper
    1 cup (250 mL) pomegranate juice
    1 Tbsp (15 mL) palm sugar or other raw sugar
    1 Tbsp (15 mL) balsamic vinegar

    Preheat oven to 350 F (180 C).

    In large bowl, flake salmon with fork and stir in eggs, oats, carrot, shallot, garlic, parsley, lemon, horseradish (if using), salt, and pepper.

    Add salmon mixture to 9 x 5 x 3 in (2 L) greased loaf pan and spread until mixture is of even height and width. Bake for 40 minutes, or until salmon loaf is set in centre. Let cool for several minutes before unmoulding.

    Meanwhile, place pomegranate juice, sugar, and vinegar in small saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-high and simmer, uncovered, until reduced and slightly thickened, about 15 minutes.

    Unmould salmon loaf and spread pomegranate glaze over top. Slice and serve.

    Smoky Lentil Sloppy Joe Stuffed Peppers

    This hearty version of traditional sloppy joes has a tidy helping of sleep-aiding dietary fibre, thanks to its payload of smoky lentils. Swapping out the doughy bun for sweet bell pepper ups the nutritional ante and visual appeal. It’s also superb as leftovers. Smoke and fire Chipotle peppers are ripened red jalapeno chiles that have been smoked and dried. In stores, they’re typically sold in a rich, smoky flavoured adobo sauce. They add fiery, complex flavour to sauces used for pasta dishes, tacos, and any version of sloppy joes.
