- 1⁄2 teaspoon pepper
- 1⁄2 teaspoon basil
- 1⁄4 cup butter, melted
- 1 cup corn flake crumbs

This was yummy! My husband and I both enjoyed it. I followed the recipe exactly but had the opposite problem as the first commenter - mine seemed to be watery on the bottom. That's my only complaint - I will make again.
This was pretty good. Seemed just a little dry to me, but very tasty. The recipe was very clear and easy to follow, so I will be making this again. Next time, I think I will use salmon steaks instead of canned salmon because I had trouble picking out the skin and bones. Perhaps using cream instead of milk would make the sauce a little richer. All in all, a good recipe and very easy on the budget! We LOVED the cornflake & butter topping!
