Salmon With Crab Sauce

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by wicked cook 46

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
