MY REVIEW

I cooked this tonight and it was a huge hit with my boyfriend. Definitely will be cooking this again. Quick and easy and so was the clean up. I would like to try it without so much butter or perhaps milk instead of cream.

MY REVIEW

This was very good! Rich, but good. I used what I had on hand, I didn't have ground mustard, so I just put in a squirt if yellow mustard, and it added just a little zing. I also had some Mexican cheese blend, not cheddar, but it worked fine. I had 3 lbs of salmon to use, but I made like 1.5 of the sauce, not double, and I would NOT have wanted more sauce. That was more than enough. I also just put the 1t salt in the 1.5, due to previous reviews, and it was still a bit salty, I think the butter cheese, etc. probably have almost enough salt on their own. We love salt though, it was fine for us. I used Cornstarch to thicken the sauce because my youngest daughter can't have wheat. I was upset cause the starch turned chunky in the pan. However, once I baked the whole thing, the little chunks melted, and it was just fine. Very yummy overall.

Amazing - this is the first time I've made anything with shrimp so I was a little worried but it turned out fantastic. The cheese sauce was a little too salty, but I notice the online version calls for 1/2 tsp less.

Yum, yum, and more yum. We indulge in this recipe several times each winter. I cut down on the salt in the cheese sauce. Definitely try with broccoli, and maybe some cauliflower.
