Used this recipe to use up soe leftover salmon I had. It was delish. I have to add however that I used the recipe just as a base. Instead of a yellow pepper I used a comination of purple green and red peppers. I also cut up about a 1/4 of a fresh cayenne pepper. I also used red onion not your typical white or yellow. I used regular cream cheese..not a big fan of the reduced calorie one. As far as seasonings...this is where I ventured out. I seasoned the salmon with salt and pepper garlic Old Bay and dried dill. I let the salmon "marinade" it the seasonings for about a hour before cooking. We will definitely enjoy this recipe again on "leftover" night. BTW: my husband said "Why go out to dinner when I can get restaurant meals at home." So I'd say he liked it too. Read More

Bland and blah. The sauce had no flavor. I added more cream cheese, more lemon. I even added red pepper and parmesan. It all helped, but it was still nothing to write home about. Read More

This was good but it wasn't enough sauce. Granted I used a full pound of salmon (seasoned with salt pepper and dill) so if you do that I'd say double or triple the sauce. Otherwise quite enjoyable. Read More

This is a great way to use leftover grilled salmon. I took the advice of other comments and added some more seasonings including a little red pepper. This recipe makes enough for two generous portions. Read More
