Recipe by Kree6528

This recipe is from Coastal New England Summer Cooking by Sherri Eldridge. Salmon poached with white wine then combined with a creamy dill sauce. Yum. Plus each serving only has 275 calories and 7 grams of fat. Use the soy margarine to make this dairy-free.

I think there was a mistake in this receipe 1 tsp of white pepper made the sauce very hot, certainly didn't need the cayenne as well, and sauce is not very creamy
