    1. SALMON LOAF: Drain the salmon, reserving liquid for Lemon Sauce: debone salmon, flake salmon into a medium bowl. Add in bread crumbs, Large eggs lemon juice, onion, salt & pepper; mix well. Saute/fry' mushrooms in butter in a medium skillet over medium heat for 2 min. Add in spinach; saute/fry' till wilted, about 2 min. Pat 1/2 of the salmon mix into a greased 8 1/2 X 4 1/2 X 2 3/4 inch loaf pan. Top with mushroom mix in an even layer leaving a 1 inch border on all sides. Top with remaining salmon mix; spread top smooth & pat down. Bake in a preheated 350F. degree oven till center is set & top is golden brown, about 45 min. Let stand 5 min before slicing. Serve with Lemon Sauce. Garnish with lemon slices & parsley.
    2. LEMON SAUCE: Measure reserved salmon liquid; add in sufficient lowfat milk to make 2/3 c.. Heat butter in a small sauce pan over medium heat; stir in flour, salt & pepper till smooth. Reduce heat to low. Gradually whisk in the lowfat milk mix; cook & stir till sauce thickens & bubbles for 1 minute. Gradually whisk 1/4 c. of the warm sauce into egg yolk in a small bowl. Gradually whisk the egg yolk mix into remaining sauce in pan. Cook stirring constantly, over low heat till thickened, about 1 minute; don't boil.
    3. Stir in lemon juice & serve over Mushroom Stuffed Salmon Loaf.
    4. NOTES :*This is my favorite way to use canned salmon. I sometimes replace the spinach with shredded cheese(1 c.). Monterey Jack, Gouda, Swiss & Smoked Baby Swiss cheeses are all excellant in this dish. If using cheese do not saute/fry' it with the mushrooms; put it on top of the mushrooms when forming the loaf.
