Salmon Mornay

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Baz231

A delicious and simple meal. Served with plain rice, my kids love it. Can also substitute canned tuna (or chicken) for the salmon. As the first reviewer has pointed out, it works just as well if you substitute more milk for the cream. If I do that I generally add a bit more cheese though.

Overall yes a very quick and easy dish my main problem was I cannot see this serving 6-8 as is, I used a 415 gram can of red salmon drained and kept with the other quantities though due to dietary reasons had to omit the celery and sub spring onion/scallion for the onion and used extra cheese, I did like the the addition of the cream but the corn overall most of us would give a miss. Preperation time was generous but then I didn't do celery and the spring onion may have been quicker than regular but is definately a good bench mark to work with. Served with rice and steamed veg., thank you Bax, made for ZAAR Che Alphabet Soup.
