This was easy and delicious! Usually, I roast salmon with seasonings on top so using a sauce was a big change for me. Although I normally modify recipes, I followed this pretty closely (except for using onions instead of scallions and maybe a tad more wine...) and it came out beautifully. It is actually company-worthy too.

This tasted wonderful, but I am very sorry about the picture I used portobello mushrooms and it made the sauce very dark so sorry but I can't fault the recipe or the taste, but I wish I had used some lighter mushrooms. If you would like to remove the photo that would be ok with me. Made for Honor thy Mother the diabetic forum May 2011.

A pleasant baked salmon dish. This is definitely a good one for company. Baking in the sauce keeps the fish moist, with some flexibility in keep warm time. The standard bechamel proportions would include a cup of milk for this much flour and butter, which makes a much nicer texture sauce. I also baked the fish covered, so not so much moisture is lost. I'd be hesitant about substituting lemon juice for wine, since the lemon is so much more acidic. Perhaps a clear fish broth with a touch of unsweetened white grape juice, if you're avoiding alcohol.
