Alaska Salmon with Horseradish, Walnuts & Herbs

Prep Time: 10 min

Cook Time: 15 min

Serves: 2


2 Alaska Salmon fillets (4 to 6 oz. each), fresh, thawed or frozen
Olive oil
2 to 3 Tablespoons creamy horseradish
1/3 cup finely chopped walnuts
1 Tablespoon each chopped fresh chives, parsley and tarragon
1 Tablespoon softened butter
Salt and pepper, to taste


Preheat oven to 450ºF.  

Spray a 9x9-inch baking pan with cooking spray.  Rinse any ice glaze from frozen Alaska Salmon under cold water; pat dry with paper towel.  Brush both sides of fish with olive oil and place in the pan.  Roast, uncovered, for 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a small bowl combine horseradish, walnuts, herbs and butter.  Remove fish from oven and spread mixture evenly over the salmon fillets.  

Return fish to oven and roast an additional 8 to 10 minutes for frozen fillets or 5 to 6 minutes for fresh/thawed fish.  Cook just until fish is opaque throughout.  Season with salt and pepper, to taste.

Cook’s tip: Horseradish will mellow during cooking and vary in intensity.
