Salmon With Horseradish "Cream"
photo by CookinDiva
- Ready In:
- 1⁄2 cup plain yogurt
- 4 teaspoons drained prepared horseradish
- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
- 2 (6 -8 ounce) salmon steaks, 3/4 in. thick
- 1 whole fresh chives
- Preheat oven to 350 deg.F. Lightly oil a 9-in. pie plate or other baking dish.
- Combine the yogurt, horseradish and chives in a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Season the salmon lightly with salt and pepper. Place salmon in pan and pour sauce over it.
- Bake salmon until just cooked through, about 18 to 20 minutes. Transfer to plate. Garnish with chives.
- Note1: The original calls for low-fat yogurt, but I don't like the additives, and always use whole milk natural yogurt.
- Note2: The original recipe suggests 1 tbl. of the yogurt mix spread on the fish, with the remainder passed as a sauce. I really prefer cooking all of the sauce and serving the pan sauces with the fish.
- Note3: A fillet works as well as a steak, just watch the thickness.
- Note4: Try fresh dill instead of chives - lovely. Also, really drain the horseradish well.

We loved this salmon! The horseradish goes very well with the fish, and in fact we went a little heavy on it. The salmon was still the star of the show, though! Like you, we put the sauce on the fish and saved some to serve at the table. But the extra wasn't necessary. The topping of sauce kept the fish nice and moist. Thanks for sharing - it's a keeper!
This is a tasty, no-fuss weeknight salmon recipe. The sauce has plenty of tang and it keeps the salmon very moist. I also loved the mild onion flavor imparted by the chives, which had recently pushed through the ground in my herb garden. My thick fillets were cooked perfectly in 18 minutes. Nice recipe!

My screen name is a diminutive in Lithuanian for bread, so you won't be suprised to learn that I love to bake bread. In recent years I have been baking a lot of sourdough breads and have several starters sitting in my refrigerator. But I like to cook a lot of other things, as well, especially from various cultures. The cat wishes I would concentrate on meat and fish... I joined a few years ago but started posting recipes and participating in forums just recently - I wish I had done so earlier. Recipezaar is a great community! Right now I am a co-host for the Breads and Baking and the Eastern Europe forums - I hope to see you there!
