    ChefDebs's Note:

    My Dads fiancee gave this recipe to me when we were visiting in England recently. I cooked this the other day using wild alaskan salmon(found in Walmart,can you believe!) And it was superb,I made my own pesto as my garden is full of basil. Also I cant buy creme fraiche locally so I made my own by adding lemon juice to heavy cream until thickened.

      The crust was excellent - I didn't make the sauce but the crust topping was a definite keeper! I didnt have any lemons so used just a bit of lemon juice and some salt.
