Salmon Florentine

Salmon is one of my favorite fish, so I was going to try doing a salmon take on cordon bleu but switched to Salmon Florentine because my bleu cheese was past its prime. Here is the truth: I used chicken for my wife, so you will see that one in a few months. Spinach, shallots, mushrooms, and garlic bring the base. Cream, chicken broth, wine, and cheese make the sauce rich and creamy. The salmon is still the leading flavor because I got quality salmon from Crosby’s Crabs. I hope you like it.
