Review This Recipe
I maded this recipe but not with salmon,with tuna.
This salmon is sooooo good. My fiancee loves it and asks me to make it all the time. The only thing I do different is add capers on top of the salmon after the alfredo sauce has been spooned on. Very good recipe!! I would highly recommend it!
