Sort By :
"This tasted okay, but the loaf wasn't very...loaf-like. Though cooked through, it was not really held together well. May try cooking it without the water bath next time."
"I used fresh Salmon for this recipe. The taste was to die for. Wonderful ! I will never use creamed peas on my salmon ever again. Loved the sauce too."
"Moist, light and tasty. I used half butter and half olive oil and added a dab of French mustard, horseradish and dill to the Olive cream sauce. As in your photo, served with lemon wedge and dill. Excellent"
