One of my fave meals!Very easy, tasty and healthy as well. The mustard is not overpowering at all, I actually put some more after baking because the heat definitely killed the strong flavour that mustard has. it is true that the vegetables are not ready for 30 minutes more about 45. Overall great meal would make it again, next time with parsnip because this time i did not have any.

Quite nice but increased volume of vegetables and included red onion and pepper as AllieB suggested - thanks. Had to cook vegetables for about an hour. Didn't add mustard or horseradish since not a fan but nice anyway.

Just to add to the above comment, I'm not keen on the strong flavour of horseradish so only used a teaspoon rather than the 2 tablespoons suggested.

This was really lovely although the veg took twice as long as the recipe suggests. The mustard wasn't at all overpowering and although I had reservations beforehand, the sauce was lovely and went brilliantly with the fish. Will definitely make this again.

Nice, but I found the sauce and mustard combination a bit too vinegary. However, the combination of the veg (particularly the beetroot) and salmon was lovely. I agree with others, the veg needs slightly longer.

Awsome taste, even if you bake different vegs.

Delicious recipe, I didn't have parsnip, so I used celeriac instead. It works perfectly with the salmon and horseradish. Will definitely make again.

This recipe is delicious, so quick and easy to make and tastes wonderful. Also threw in some garlic cloves along with the roasted veg. Yum, will definitely be making again (and again)!

I have made this about 5 times as the whole family love it. I add a lot more veg and particularly like chestnut mushrooms, red onions and yellow and red peppers. Don't be afraid of the mustard on the top of the salmon as it doesn't taste hot when cooked and the creme fraiche and horseradish sauce is just wonderful. The veg can take up to an hour to cook in the oven but the salmon takes no time so just add the fish when you think the veg are almost cooked. A big favourite in our house - tasty scrummy and is very healthy.

Had this tonight. Could only find cooked beet, they worked fine. Worried that the horseradish and mustard flavours might clash, but not at all, delicious. Did give it 40 minutes total because some of my carrots and parsnips were quite chunky.
