You know those "crazy cakes" , usually chocolate, that you mix up with a fork right in the cake pan? I had no idea, but Hannah has just walked me through her kid-salmon-loaf recipe. It is a crazy loaf much like the crazy cakes.
It is very very plain. Add other stuff if you want (like peas or green onions). The kids all like this, though. Here you go.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Oil a 9x13 glass dish generously with olive oil. Dump two cans of salmon with bones, liquid and all, into the dish. Use a fork to mash up all the bones really well. Crack in four eggs and beat them with the fork, mixing well with the salmon.
Now take a container of finely ground yellow cornmeal (the cardboard canister from Quaker works fine) and shake some over the top. Mix it in with a fork. Repeat until the consistency resembles meatloaf. (At this point, you could add vegetables, onions, and other things to make it not so plain.)
Press the mixture flat down into the pan and drizzle generously with olive oil on the top. Bake till crispy. Cut up and serve with ketchup.
There you go -- the only thing you've dirtied is one glass dish and one fork...
