Old Fashioned Salmon Loaf with Spanish Sauce

This is a truly old, old, family favorite recipe of my Grandma’s. My Mom used to make it when I was a kid, and to be honest I never much cared for it. But as my taste buds have matured, I do it enjoy it now. My Mom and Grandma always made a white sauce made with peas to serve over it. For some reason it is called “Spanish Sauce”. This is an easy, economical and healthy recipe.
