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

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. Result!

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. 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.
