    Both my husband and I loved this. Made it using the half and half. The salmon was perfectly cooked. Served it over rice. Will definitely make this again.

    Really really good I also substituted shrimp one comment best with evaporated milk

    Looks like everybody's been ringing in variations, so here are mine: Instead of evaporated milk or cream, I made white sauce. Flavored the olive oil by frying chopped garlic in it (and saved the carefully browned garlic to add to the sauce). I made LOTS of sauce because I didn't read the recipe too carefully. I see than the tomatoes and spinach are supposed to be lightly coated with reduced milk, rather than swimming in cheese sauce (the way I made it). My husband didn't like the cooked tomatoes. Too bad. I will definitely cook this again.

    Very good. Did not use butter substituted olive oil. Did not use evaporated milk... used low fat milk and simmered until thickened.

    I didn’t have any evaporated milk on hand, so I substituted coconut milk, added a little butter for richness, and served it all over a bed of rice noodles. The salmon was very moist and the sauce had a nice light flavor. Overall, it was a success!

    This was amazing!!!! Creamy sauce and fresh salmon....duh!! However I did make some adjustments. We were out of butter so I used extra virgin olive oil, I seasoned my salmon with 4 chopped garlic cloves, pink malaysian salt and freshly ground black pepper. (I'm removing the skin next time!). For the sauce, because there is never enough, I doubled the receipe and added mushrooms while blanching the spinach. it was perfect!!!

    Mmm we liked this one a lot! Made it with only 2 salmon fillets, which wasn’t enough, but it was delicious. Excited to make it again eventually!
