Great! Added a few extra seasonings and some lemon juice, and substituted the salmon for Shrimp and it worked great.

Great recipe! Turned out very good. A bit weak in flavor so I added some lemon juice. Would make again.

Pretty good! Needed extra spices. Used a lemon dill mix from Epicure to give it more flavour.

Delicious. Substituted tarragon for the dill and used half and half instead of heavy cream. The grated parm thickens the sauce plenty.

Love this recipe but as is my usual, a recipe to me is merely a starting point! I’m a thrifty shopper so found half price smoked salmon offcuts on the deli so used 400g of this for a fraction of the cost! I also added half cup dry white wine and plenty of black pepper. A 5* new family favourite.

This turned out better than I expected it to. First, it's a LOT OF WORK to build a cream sauce from scratch and as I was multitasking I might be to blame for some of my lack of success. I did use half and half because I had it, but didn't have heavy cream, so the fat content wasn't correct. However, by trying to do other things at the same time I couldn't stir constantly (which should be in the instructions) and the cream "broke". I ended up with a grainy cottage-cheese like sauce instead of a creamy alfredo style topping. Other than that, it turned out fine and the lemon (I had to use regular ones as the store was out of Meyers) really added a wonderful brightness. I found that the sauce was only enough to coat about 1/2 lb of pasta, not the full pound in the recipe and it certainly won't fit in the 12" pan! The salmon, dill and asparagus combo is always a winner and when combined with the creamy parmesan and lemon it was a wonderful dish.
