This is one of my favourite ways to serve salmon.I often serve this to dinner guests with green beans almondine and a rice pilaf; fast, easy and elegant. Great for a week night meal too.The prep time includes the marinating of the fish.

The marinade was really nice in this. The orange really came through. Unfortunately the cream sauce wasnt as nice as I had hoped. I could have made it wrong but it just wasnt very creamy and tasted kind of powdery (??? I know there is no powder in it but I cant think of a word to describe it) will def make mariade again but wont be turning it into a cream.
