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

    Horseradish root on a wooden chopping board


    hors rad-ish

    Horseradish root is larger than an ordinary radish, and has a hot, peppery flavour.


  • 2 tsp chopped thyme or 1 tsp dried


    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.

  2. Put the salmon in one layer in a lightly oiled baking dish. Press the crumbs on to the flesh, then bake for 10-12 mins.

  3. Meanwhile, put the cabbage in a large pan with a little salt and pour in boiling water to come halfway up. Cover and cook for 8-10 mins until tender. Drain well, then return to the pan with the yogurt and plenty of black pepper. Reheat gently. Pile the cabbage onto plates and serve with the salmon.

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!
