Very nice! I used a little extra celery for added veggies, used a 14 oz can of salmon, de-boned and well drained, and used potato flour to make it gluten free. I also use a little garlic oil since I didn't have garlic handy, and mixed in a little yogurt and cream cheese into the milk mixture for added creaminess. It turned out delicious! Thanks for providing this great framework recipe to play with.
This is a simple recipe that has great flavor. I have made this several times and have now use this as a base and add things to change it each time. I have added peas with great results. I have added parmesean cheese also. My wife loves it each time I make it. Try it!!
So comforting and so delicious! We thought it was a great way to use salmon (I used canned). I added in some sauteed peas and carrots for more color and flavor. We loved it this way!
