“This is an easy and delicious way to serve salmon. The cream keeps the fish moist and if you choose a dish the steaks fit in snug but not too tight, the amount of cream is not all that bad. You could try this with half cream; I have always used cream because it makes a nice sauce. The lemon quarters are served with the fish if you want to sharpen the sauce a little. This recipe is easily made for 2 or 20 people (the four servings in this recipe are just a guide line) as long as you cover the fish with the cream. Keep an eye on it, if the cream reduces too much you have to add a bit more. Nice served with parsley covered new potatoes.”
