Wow, I wish we had these kind of recipes around me! I adored this! every single way. Let me tell you why....first off; I followed this exactly, except dusting the salmon in flour. (duh! I forgot) however, this is the only difference. Everything was perfect. I cooked my taters' on top of my wood-stove - slowly - first boiling them as the author suggests, then putting them in a pan and cooking them with the rest of the ingredients. I quickly seared the salmon - then put that atop the lovely golden potatoes- and it was just heavenly! This is truly a more then 5 star recipe - so easy with all the taste you could and can imagine! Great for company, and easier the pouring a glass of warm milk before bedtime. Enjoy life, enjoy food, and enjoy your friends!
