"From What's Cooking America. Delicious way to easily prepare salmon. So yummy! This recipe not only appeals to North America- U.S. and Canada- also fits quite well in French, Scandinavian and Eastern European cultures and cuisines."

  1. Delicious! Yes a little too much sauce for the meat. Excellent! I forgot the flour (I'm Gluten Free) and it worked just fine.
  2. used the extra sauce that other reviewers mentioned as topping for go-with baked potatoes.
  3. This is a great salmon recipe. I love the sauce here! The garlic in here was very flavourful - just how I like it! I did half the sauce though and still had some left over. Not a problem since it will be great as a dip for veggies too. Thanks Mama! Reviewed during ZWT 4.
  4. Great recipe! As advice from other reviewers, I halved the cream cheese, sour cream, and mayo - and glad I did, as this was plenty sauce for me, and cut down on calories even more. I also used more garlic (personal preference). I loved the addition of wine! Great recipe and will make again!
  5. Great salmon recipe! I loved it! Dh made it last night and followed directions to a T and it came out perfectly. There was plenty of sauce and the salmon was cooked slightly rare in the middle - just the way I like it. Thanks for this one, it's going into my files for future dinners.
