DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  • In a heavy bottomed 2 quart saucepan, cook the onions in butter over low heat for 5 minutes, until onions are tender but not browned.
  • Stir in the flour, and cook slowly for 2 minutes without coloring.
  • Off heat, beat in the boiling milk, then the wine, salmon juice, and the seasonings.
  • Now bring this sauce to a boil over moderately high heat, stirring.
  • Boil several minutes to evaporate the alcohol in the wine, and allow the sauce to thicken considerably. Then, thin it out to a medium consistency with tablespoons of cream. Taste carefully for seasoning.
  • Fold the salmon and optional ingredients into the sauce, and check seasoning again. Spread in baking dish or pastry shell.
  • Sprinkle on the cheese and distribute the butter in pea-sized dots.
  • Bake in upper third of oven for about 15 minutes, or until top is nicely browned.
