This tasted good but I agree with those who said it was a bit gloupy. I would make it again but I don't think I would serve it to guests.

Really liked this dish, although I did add a little passata to the sauce.It was yummy and i would make again....but probably not often due to cal content...maybe try it with creme fraiche the next time!

Used smoked salmon scraps and because of other comments that it was bland I added crushed chilli flakes, spring onions and loads of black pepper. Went down a storm and the guests "demanded" I do this dish again before they had even cleared their plates.

This recipe is delicious. I felt a bit adventurous though so I left the recipe and fried chorizo in the wine, added mushrooms and prawns, blanched some curly kale and bought a bottle of Fleurie to match the salmon - SO GOOD!!!

Creamy and utterly delicious. Very quick and easty to rustle up!

This is a rather heavy dish, which required a lot of seasoning to make it less bland. I loved the double cream&white wine sauce, almost didn't want to add salmon to it!

Comfort food at its best! Very simple but super tasty. Good suggestions about the creme fraiche alternative. Although would have it with dressing next time if having it with double cream. Delicious!

Very simple and easy to make (literally takes ten minutes) and can be adapted easily. Yum!
