Horseradish Crusted Salmon

26 Jun

I don’t often find excuses to eat copious amounts of horseradish, but when I find one I make it count.  Besides, I’ve been all about recipes which are healthy, easy, and simple to complete and this one is basically a no-brainer!

Horseradish-Crusted-Salmon


Horseradish-Crusted Salmon (original recipe by Country Living)

  • 1 clove pressed garlic
  • 2 T prepared horseradish
  • 1 t. egg white
  • salmon filet
  • 1/4 c. Panko breadcrumbs
  • olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 t. lemon zest plus a squeeze of lemon juice

Preheat the oven to 425*F.  Mix together the horseradish, garlic, egg white, lemon juice, lemon zest, salt, and pepper to taste.  Once combined, stir in the breadcrumbs and about 1 t. olive oil.  Add more olive oil if you need to remove any clumps.  Set this mixture aside as you heat 1/2 T. olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.  Salt and pepper the flesh of the salmon, then place it flesh-side down in the pre-heated oil.  Pan sear for about 3 minutes, then carefully shift the salmon in the skillet and cook 1 minute longer.  Place the salmon skin-side down on a sheet pan and top with the horseradish mixture – pat lightly so that the horseradish mixture sticks to the filet.  Broil until you get a nicely golden crust.
