    wicked cook 46's Note:

    Found this online some where about a year ago. We love it. I usually just do two salmon filets and halve the sauce since I cook for just two of us. But if you do the whole sauce recipe and have leftovers it is great on toast for lunch the next day. I used skim milk. Elegant enough for a dinner party

      For us, it was too lemony. Next time, I'll use less lemon zest and juice. But the sauce goes very well with the salmon. Thanks Wicked Cook :) Made for Gimme 5 tag game

      Wow! This is delicious. I cut the recipe down to serve 2 and used lowfat half and half for the milk. This made so much yummy sauce that I had plenty to serve over fettuccine. I pan fried my salmon by using cooking spray. This really is elegant enough to serve to company. Thanks for posting. :)

      Outstanding salmon recipe! The sauce is superb. It's smooth, creamy and rich- great flavor, too. I loved this so much and will be making it often. I baked my salmon and sprinkled it with a little Emeril's essence along with the lemon-pepper. I was afraid to use full teaspoons of lemon-pepper because it sounded like a lot so I used 1/2 teaspoons both times. Other than that, I made this exactly as written. I am so happy I chose this one- it's a KEEPER! Thanks for sharing your delicious recipe, wicked!
