Alaska salmon with horseradish, walnuts & herbs

Once again we are going to have salmon for dinner. And why not, it is wonderful fish to enjoy no matter if it is wild or farmed. So we vent to Alaska to get a good recipe for salmon of all origin and we sure can recommend this one. A lovely dinner for people in love.

Ingredients:

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

Directions:

Preheat oven to 450ºF.

Spray a 9×9-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.
