Salmon Cups With Cheese Sauce

This came from TOH. DH loves this recipe. Actually it is 2 recipes, salmon and sauce. I have frozen the patties, uncooked. I have also used leftover salmon instead of canned. This goes great with a raisin pilaf and the one I use has a matching oven temperature of 375 degrees.

These were easy to make and very tasty and Great flavors! I felt that the cheese sauce was way too heavy for my taste but a Great flavors as will! I use Cavender's brand Greek seasoning over Jasmine rice. My family likes this dish because it's a different way to enjoy the bounty of fish. Two sauces?one rich, warm and cheesy, and the other light, cool and refreshing?complement the salmon nicely. Couldn't have been happier with the way it turned out. Yes I made a few alterations, I can't leave anything alone! I have to play with my food. I did adjusted to my personal taste. Everyone liked it--I used leftover Salmon to make it. One daughter commented that she liked it better than the salmon that was served to her at 5-Star at a NY. Resturant this is a better flavor, than that just plain salmon she was served. My family Thank You for a Absolutely Delicious Recipe! Made for PRMR 2013 Thank You....Grpa <br/>I cant do 7 Stars here. Sorry I will definitely make this again and put it in my recipe box to do
