This easy salmon and potato bake features a creamy sauce, and is a real winter warmer of a meal. It is a one-pot dish so you do not need to have various pots and pans bubbling away. There is no stress involved with this one and even if you are new to making fish recipes you will find this a very simple recipe. The whole family will enjoy the eclectic mix of flavors this meal offers.

The mozzarella is lovely with this dish. Some of it is sprinkled over the top of the salmon and potato mixture, and the remainder is used in the creamy sauce which is drizzled over the top before serving. The salmon cooks a lot quicker than the dense potatoes, so you will need to par-cook those before adding the fish. The mixed herbs are great in this dish, although you could use fresh herbs if you prefer. Try basil, rosemary or thyme perhaps. A few chives could also be good.

Although the potatoes make this hearty and filling, you could also serve some crusty bread on the side. This enables you to sop up all the lovely juices which are left on your plate. This recipe is one of the best ways to cook salmon. The creamy sauce is very easy to make but it has a gourmet flavor and the overall dish is satisfying, flavorful and it also looks really attractive. You need surprisingly few ingredients to make this. Along with the fish and potatoes, you will need cream, herbs and cheese, and the result is full-flavored and simply incredible.

Hi, my name is Christine. I am happy you are visiting today. Food is very important to everyone, and in this family we love to eat all kinds of dishes from meat and chicken to international cuisine, crockpot creations and more. Seafood is something we also love, and I love the fact it is nutritious as well as very tasty.

Everyone knows 'the big three' which are cod, tuna and salmon, but sometimes it is fun to try different types of fish, such as perch, trout, monkfish, or even shellfish like mussels or clams. There are seafood recipes for every season and occasion, those served chilled for a refreshing burst of flavor, and those served hot in stew or soup form.

Choose from crispy fried fish, tender pan-fried or poached cuts, or what about a seafood medley boasting the most wonderful flavors of the sea, lake or river? Seafood can be served as part of a salad or savory dish, or it can be served as an appetizer or snack. Bacon-wrapped scallops, anyone? You will find a comprehensive collection of wonderful seafood recipes right here, for your inspiration and enjoyment.

Thanks for visiting,
