Ok so off the bat I wasn’t sure about horseradish and salmon but my love of horseradish and the abundance of salmon we have told me to try this recipe. I didn’t make the sauce because it didn’t sound good to me at all.


  • 1 lb redskin potatoes, scrubbed and quartered
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1/4 cup ground flaxseeds
  • 1/4 cup plus 1 tbsp fresh flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped, divided
  • 3 tbsp peeled and finely grated fresh horseradish
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper, divided
  • 4 4-oz boneless salmon fillets
  • 1 large egg white, lightly beaten
  • 1 lb fresh asparagus, trimmed
  • 1/2 cup low-fat buttermilk
  • 1/3 cup low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt


  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup low-fat buttermilk
  • 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp arrowroot powder
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • Pinch cayenne pepper



Preheat oven to 350°F. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add potatoes and garlic and cook until potatoes are tender, about 25 minutes. Drain and return to pot.

Meanwhile, in a shallow bowl, combine flaxseeds, 1/4 cup parsley, horseradish, garlic powder and 1/2 tsp black pepper. Dip one salmon fillet in egg white, then press top and sides into horseradish mixture. Transfer crusted side up to a foil-lined baking dish. Repeat with remaining fillets. Cover dish with foil and bake until flesh flakes easily when tested with a fork, about 25 minutes.

Prepare sauce: In a small pot, whisk sauce ingredients. Heat on medium and cook, whisking often, until thick, 10 to 15 minutes; do not boil.

In a steamer basket set over a pot of gently simmering water, steam asparagus until tender-crisp.

Heat potatoes on medium-low and add 1/2 cup buttermilk, broth and 1 tsp oil. Mash and stir to desired consistency. Remove from heat and stir in remaining 1 tbsp parsley, 1/2 tsp black pepper and salt. Divide potatoes, salmon and asparagus among serving plates. Top asparagus with sauce.
