A lovely, spicy new way with salmon, with the horseradish perfectly complementing the fish, and a good source of omega-3 to boot.

    This popular herb grows in Europe, especially the Mediterranean, and is a member of the mint…

  • 4 thin skinless salmon steaks, about 140g/5oz each



    With its delicate, sweet flesh and wide availability, salmon is one of the most popular fish.…

  • 1 small Savoy cabbage, shredded
  • 2 rounded tbsp 0% Greek yogurt


  1. Heat oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. Whizz the bread into crumbs in a food processor. Add the horseradish and thyme, then season and mix well.

This was so very tasty although really strong horseradish kick to it so go easy on that, I followed the good advie here and added parmesan too. I served it with a green bean and new potato salad (with anchovies) and watercress. Will definately make again. (its not quite a 5 recipe but more than 4, would like to give it 4.5 stars!)

Delicious, very easy to make. I used half the quantities to top one big salmon steak, and served with a mixed salad. Definitely trying this one again.

Really tasty! I used the same quantity of topping listed here for 2 salmon steaks so if I was cooking for 4 I would double. Instead of cabbage I served with creamy leeks (using creme fraiche instead of Greek yoghurt) and peas.

Ran out of horseradish sauce so replaced the rest with dijon mustard and it tasted really nice. Served with carrots which seemed to compliment the dish and didn't add any more calories. Only 5.5 weight watchers points for whole meal!

Quick, easy and tasty. Added parmesan and butter to breadcrumbs too..spread on to a plate and chilled in freezer for 5 mins. Cut out appropriate shape and topped salmon. Baked as per recipe but sat salmon in about 100ml of fish stock.

I wish I'd read the comments too as the parmesan would really add something. I think I may add a little more horseradish next time for a little more kick. A bit too subtle for my liking. Nevertheless I will be cooking this again!

This is a great recipe. A fave for a healthy Friday evening in our house now. Goes fantastically with sweet potato mash or sweet potato wedges.

my husband and i didnt think the horseradish was very nice with salmon at all, i thought it would be nice as i love it with mackerel. i dont know if i did something wrong but the breadcrumbs wouldnt go crispy i presume its because they were mixed with wet horseradish.

Friday night is our special cook for each other night.

This was fabulous, my turn tonight, I halved the recipe and added our home grown new potatoes.

Result, fabulous, hard act to follow when it is his turn next Friday.

Agree - very quick and easy. My boyfriend says he doesn't like horseradish but loved it. I would make extra topping if you buy the bigger steaks.

Delicious! The horseradish works so well with salmon - my new favourite

Quick and easy and my husband ate it, even though he says he doesn't eat fish.

Delicious. Even my fussy husband thought so.
I used gluten free bread as I am coeliac.

Excellent for quick, tasty, healthy mid week meal. Second time I made it I added some grated parmesan to breadcrumbs mix and it worked well for us.
