Had Salmon & Monkfish, made own cheese sauce with goats cheese, as we cannot have cows milk. Worked just as well will be keeping it as a dinner time standby as it can be made from cupboard contents.-25 Mar 2014


Just fabulous! The only change I made was to use white wine instead of vinegar when cooking the salmon. I've made it several times already and will make it many more!-13 Oct 2002

Wow, this was so good. I used the "famous restaurant alfredo sauce" recipe in place of the canned sauce. I also didn't toss it with the parmesan cheese.Will use this recipe again and again. Thinking about replacing the salmon with shrimp and scallops next time.Thanks!-09 Feb 2006
