Baked Salmon with Horseradish Mayonnaise

Number of Servings: 4

Serving Size: 3/12 oz. fish plus 1 tablespoon mayonnaise

Salmon's distinctive flavor is complemented by the pungent spiciness of the horseradish mayonnaise. It's a simple way to prepare fish and makes any weeknight dinner extra special. Try a rice pilaf and Sugar Snap Peas with Basil and Lemon (page 334) as sides.

Name: Amount:
salmon fillet ( 1 pound total), cut into 4 pieces 1 ea
chopped shallots 2 Tbsp
white wine or vermouth 0.25 cup
lite mayonnaise 2 Tbsp
lite sour cream 2 Tbsp
lemon juice, fresh 2 tsp
horseradish,freshly chopped or prepared, drained 2 tsp
capers drained (optional) 2 tsp

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Prepare a shallow roasting pan or baking dish with nonstick pan spray.


Place the salmon fillets, skin side down, in the pan. Sprinkle the shallots over the slices; pour wine evenly over all. Bake 6 to 8 minutes, or just until the fish is opaque.


While the fish is cooking, combine the mayonnaise, sour cream, lemon juice, horseradish and capers, if desired, in a small bowl; mix well.


Transfer the salmon and shallots to warm serving plates with a slotted spatula. Top each serving with a heaping tablespoon of horseradish mayonnaise. Garnish with capers, if desired.
