White wine salmon

My mom first made this recipe when I was about 20 years old. No need to tell you that the original recipe did not use almond milk, but rather 15% cream.  However, this was the first recipe my mom made in the attempt to eat healthier food. I am fortunate that my mom always cooked at home. Everyday, she was preparing a fresh cooked meal for dinner. We rarely ate out and when we did it was a real party for my sister and I (which kid doesn't love McDonald's!). Back then, we were not as concerned about fat, carbs, protein and sugar. I can assure you that my mom was cooking hearty meals with a lot of butter. Hahaha!

When my mom first made this recipe she said: “your dad and I are now on a diet. I found this delicious salmon recipe and I'm sure you'll love it”. She was absolutely right. It was sooo delicious. I hadn't had it in a long time and I found it in my recipe book the other day. Because I reno recipes, I did modify a few ingredients to make it healthier. I can assure you though that it taste as good as my mom's original recipe.
