Horseradish Salmon

16 Mar

Though I love to cook there are far too many evenings when grabbing takeout or cracking open a container of prepared food seems much more appealing than putting in the effort. There are however so many recipes out there that hardly require any effort at all. For example, salmon with a creamy horseradish sauce over a bed of wild rice with a side of asparagus. Sounds like some serious time in the kitchen right? In reality it’s more like dinner on the table in 20 minutes.

This is really one of the easiest recipes ever. Preheat your oven to 350°. To make the sauce mix ½ cup yogurt (I used low fat Greek) with prepared horseradish (I went with EXTRA HOT) and a handful of fresh chives. Next, pat down your salmon filets, season with salt and pepper and spread a tablespoon of the sauce over each. Pop them in the oven and 15-20 minutes later… voila, dinner is served!

Sometimes Good Things Come without the Wait

Salmon with Horseradish

Bon Appétit | 1991 Serves 2

1/2 cup plain low-fat yogurt

4 teaspoons drained prepared horseradish

2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives

2 6-to 8-ounce 3/4-inch-thick salmon steaks

Whole fresh chives

Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly oil 9-inch glass pie plate. Combine yogurt, horseradish and chives in small bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Season salmon lightly with salt and pepper. Spread 1 tablespoon yogurt mixture over each salmon steak. Arrange salmon in prepared dish. Bake salmon until just cooked through, about 18 minutes*. Transfer to plate. Garnish with chives. Serve, with remaining yogurt mixture as sauce.

*Note: I like my salmon to be rather rare. This recipe produces a cooked through filet. It was quite tasty however if I made it again I would reduce the cooking time by 5 min or so.
