Baked Salmon with a Blue Cheese Cream on a Leek and Garlic Mash

On occasion, when dinner approaches, we have no plans and end up looking in the fridge, freezer and pantry to come up with something. That is what happened to create this dish and it turned out awesome! This dish has a baked salmon that is very mild accompanied by a blue cheese sauce. The leek and garlic mash the salmon rests on is very tasty!
