I just needed a quick sauce to go with my grilled salmon and bumped into this one. I modified it a bit so i made mine with lowfat cottage cheese, fresh grated horseradish and i left the mayonnaise out. I also added some extra limejuice together with the lemon to get a little more 'zest'. I mixed it in the foodprocessor and added a bit of skimmed milk to make it more moist. Really fantastic!! It made my grilled salmon and it had a perfect smooth/sharp taste. Thanx for this recipe!
This is a lovely recipe. The horseradish is actually quite subtle, so don't be afraid to try it. I love horseradish & would've liked a bit more, but the rest of the family assured me that the horseradish was perfect, not overwhelming the delicate taste of the salmon. I never would have thought to pair basil & horseradish, but it was a winning combo. Next time I would use less oil in the mixture brushed on the fish prior to grilling, and agree with Sue that you could get by with less sauce. Thanks for this recipe, Sharlene.
Great recipe! The salmon cooks perfectly in the time stated, and the sauce is creamy and zippy without too much horseradish. I probably don't need near as much sauce, so next time I will only make half the amount. I also forgot to buy fresh basil at the market and had to use dried, but it was fine. Thanks for posting!
