“My Dads fiancee gave this recipe to me when we were visiting in England recently. I cooked this the other day using wild alaskan salmon(found in Walmart,can you believe!) And it was superb,I made my own pesto as my garden is full of basil. Also I cant buy creme fraiche locally so I made my own by adding lemon juice to heavy cream until thickened.”
