A quick and easy supper to make are salmon paddies or burgers.  I usually shape them as burgers and cook them in a frying pan but sometimes I cook the whole mixture in a loaf pan in the oven.  For this meal, I made a salmon loaf.  The ingredients are pretty easy and the recipe is flexible for adaptations.   
1 large tin of salmon, drained
1 egg
2 celery stalks, chopped
1 green onion, chopped
2 to 3 tbsp corn meal
1/2 tsp dried dill
salt and pepper to taste

Break up the can of salmon in a medium sized bowl.  Add the rest of the ingredients.  Mix well.  To cook as burgers, shape into burgers with a spoon and cook on medium low heat in a frying pan.  If the pan is NOT a non-stick pan, you will need to oil or butter the frying pan or spray with Pam.  After cooking for five minutes, flip the salmon burger over with a spatula and cook until done.  If you are baking the salmon instead of making burgers, place the salmon mixture into a medium sized loaf pan and cook for about 35 to 40 minutes at 350 degrees F.   The salmon doesn't cut as well as a meat loaf so I tend to scoop the salmon out of the loaf pan with a large serving spoon.

The ingredients need to be mixed in the bowl.
Ready for cooking as burgers or as a loaf.

I like eating my salmon with mashed potatoes.  I use a bit of lemon juice on the salmon as the condiment.
