It’s the new year, and I should eat healthier, more fish. I had some salmon in the freezer, thawed it out, cooked it slightly, and made a meat loaf. Now, my word of advice: no canned salmon and no sockeye salmon, neither has enough fat for the dish to work. The Romano cheese replaces the need for salt. Simple seasoning and a lot of onions give the dish its flavor which is then enhanced by the lemon.. I hope you like it.
