It's easy to stir together this thick sauce to dress up broiled salmon steaks. The fish seems special but is really no fuss to prepare. Serve with crisp deli coleslaw and store-bought lemon cake for dessert...or try a Caesar salad and frozen key lime pie.

"I use BOTH chicken broth AND the white wine rather than either-or. I also add in perhaps a wee bit more chicken broth for added flavor. All the rest is the same. The sophisticated chive-mayo mixture makes it taste like it could be presented in a restaurant! Never overcook salmon--you want it to remain moist!"
