"Great recipe except I can not afford $ 15 a pound for salmon....I refuse to buy "farmed" fish as I feel it pollutes our environment... "

Am I missing something? 1/2 cup wine combined with 1/4 cup sour cream results in broth, not sauce. Had to remake sauce to be able to use it at all.

According to the directions,

According to the directions, it was soup. When the recipe said c9ok for a minute, it really should have said 10 minutes! Threw it out and started over.

This was a fantastically simple dish to prepare, and my boyfriend LOVED it (so did I)! I served it with brown rice, and saved the other two pieces of salmon with some of the sauce in individual containers, and then had lunch for two days, too! The sauce really makes this dish!

Very good - and so easy! Need to simmer the sauce a little longer than 1 minute for it to thicken.

I enjoyed the salmon. My family was so impressed with the food, and I have passed the recipe on to my friends. Thanks a lot.

Does anyone have suggestions--is it possible to make this for a large group... a day ahead of time? It sounds delicious, and I am wondering if I could make it and serve it at a large buffet party. I think I would have to make it up to stirring in the sour cream and do that at the last minute. Any thoughts?
