  1. Delicious Salmon ! This recipe has inspired me to try it. It came out perfectly. The sauce does come together fast and my husband went crazy about it. It is the best Salmon and sorrel sauce recipe ever, Thanks!!!

  2. I have made this both, it was simple and the sauce is very rich! I will make it for my next dinner party as it can be made mostly ahead of time. I am also planning to order Delices Gourmandises sardines, they were succulent I heard.

  3. Perfect and wonderful flavors! I used fresh basil and tarragon instead of dried, it smells good and the presentation is great. It was a big hit 🙂 I’ve been hearing that we can also use spinach instead of sorrel for the sauce, have you ever tried it? how was the result?

  4. In this time of celebration, this recipe for salmon is just wonderful! Thank you Delices and Gourmandises 🙂

  5. Too bad for me that I am allergic to seafood. The only fish I eat is tuna. When I eat fish I want to vomit.I wish I didn’t have any allergy so that I wouldn’t miss out on delicious food like this recipe presented here. Sometimes I use lemon to lessen the smell and the fishy taste to prevent myself from puking.
    Anybody has a tip to help me get over this kind of allergy?I really want to eat seafood that’s why.Anyway, I found this interesting article also for anyone who is interested in how to cook cassoulet.
    They explain with great details and some videos ways to cook salmon (grilled, sauce, fried…etc). They are even talking about the way to cook salmon from different region like the one from Atlantic and the one from pacific. I hope you will all enjoy it.

  6. I used to be allergy also but it went away with time. I guess you just eat small amount and try not to think too much about it when you eat fish. Lemon is good to prevent puking indeed
