Salmon in a Cheesy ‘No Cheese’ Parsley Sauce

Whenever I see fish in a parsley sauce it always reminds me of my mother in law. It was one of her staple dishes for her bi weekly menu. As I am gluten intolerant and I’m not to great on cheese either I’m always searching for alternatives.

Since discovering cashew nut cream cheese I have found lots of ways to use it in my recipes. I found myself thinking about my mother in law the other day and the meals she used to make when my father in law was alive. Then I thought about using the cashew nut cream cheese as a replacement cheese sauce. At the time I was unsure of using the parsley but I’m so pleased I did. It was delicious and well worth a try.

Salmon in a Cheesy ‘No Cheese’ Parsley Sauce

Salmon in a Cheesy ‘No Cheese’ Parsley Sauce was a big hit with my husband in this house. Howard, my husband, really enjoyed the cheese sauce replacement. Ted, my son aged 6, was not a fan of the sauce but he did eat all of the fish. So I got a thumbs up from one but not the other. All of the ingredients are freezable so you could make this in advance of a meal and freeze it. It was definitely a quick, simple and easy recipe to cook. However you decide to eat this dish, as always, please enjoy.
