The best salmon recipe that my husband and I have ever had! I didn't change anything. I used skim milk and reduced fat cream cheese in the sauce. DELICIOUS! Will probably be on our weekly menu for quite some time! Thanks for the great recipe!

This was a very tasty sauce to top grilled salmon. I used sun-dried tomato pesto and sprinkled capers on top. A warning - don't try to make ahead of time and reheat the sauce. It gets thick needs to be diluted with more milk. Very good recipe.
