    This was very good. I used 1/2 skim milk and 1/2 2% instead of all the cream. I also added a dash of cayenne pepper to cream sauce. Was just rich enough, definitely didn't miss all the cream or all the calories.  -  27 Nov 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    First I have to say that I am American and my husband is 100% Scottish. The only way he has ever had fish is as 'fish and chips' deep fried. I gave him two options from this site and he said 'suprise me'. So I made this one. He absolutly loved it, and so did I!! Like others, I added mushrooms, but I did not have cream so I used whole milk and added a bit of cream cheese (cutting out the other cheeses). Also, I only had Scottish spicy mustand as I am living in Scotland but still love this site. And I have to say it was amazing, and even though I only ate this 4 hours ago I am craving it already and so is my husband. I am only 22, but have been cooking for many years and all I went onto this site for today was cooking times, but this idea was very good. I would have never thought to put this sauce with fish, but it really worked! Thank you!!  -  09 Jun 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was quite good. The husband loved it. I would recommend if you cut the recipe in half do NOT cut the sauce in half as well. You really need the full amount.  -  13 Apr 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
