I love LOVE this recipe!! Only change I made was to use heavy cream instead of the half & half. Have made it a few times now and it is a big hit with the family.
Herb crusted salmon is my favorite dish from Cheesecake Factory, so I'm a bit of an expert on the taste. This recipe is practically SPOT ON!!! The first time I tried it, I accidentally swapped the amounts of white wine and white wine vinegar and it was so tart, it was inedible. The second time we got it right, and I was in HEAVEN! Use heavy cream, no half and half. and you can use more than they suggest if you want more sauce than the recipe makes. The flavor won't suffer.
I was so excited to find this recipe. This is my favorite dish at the Factory. I was very disappointed with the sauce. The half and half gave the sauce a weird consistency. Heavy cream would have worked a lot better. Plus it needed more than two tablespoons of lemon juice. Four was perfect. Its a nice start. Just needs a little work. Oh...fresh herbs are a must.
