A timbale is a small, rounded casserole that can be made with virtually any food base and is a popular dish in many cultures. For this recipe, the timbale is made with a mixture of pre-cooked salmon, eggs, bread crumbs, milk, and fresh parsley formed into a deliciously domed salmon loaf.

The recipe works best if you have a timbale casserole pan already, but if you don't, it's fine to choose the smallest one you have on hand that'll fit the mixture. Make sure to check the roasting pan & water depth accordingly. The reason for doing this in the first place is similar to cooking a custard -- the hot water helps distribute an even baking temperature.

Ingredients:

2 Tbsp. butter
1/4 C fine bread crumbs
1/3 C fish stock (or chicken stock)
1/3 C milk
1 C cooked salmon, chopped
1/2 tsp. parsley, chopped fine
2 eggs, lightly beaten

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and lightly grease a small casserole dish. In saucepan, melt butter over low heat, then stir in bread crumbs and fish stock. Add remaining ingredients one at a time, slowly stirring constantly until creamy and hot. Remove from heat and pour into casserole dish. Set casserole in roasting pan filled with hot water and put into pre-heated oven. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until firm and eggs are completely set.
