Salmon with Fresh Horseradish and Parsley Gremolata

The purpose of gremolata is to brighten and enhance whatever you put it on. I make my gremolata pretty chunky. I like being able to really see and taste the different ingredients that are in it. And with the silky texture of the baked salmon, it's a perfect complement in terms of texture.

I promise you that once you make this, you'll be looking for lots more things to put this on and for lots more ways you can use horseradish root in your cooking.

Ingredients

For the gremolata

  • 1 Cup chopped parsley
  • 1/2 Cup freshly grated horseradish*
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoon lemon zest
  • 1/2 Teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 Teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 Tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

For the baked salmon

  • Olive oil, for the baking dish
  • Two 12-ounce, 1- to 1 1/4-inch-thick, center-cut salmon fillets

Directions

For the gremolata

Combine all of the ingredients in a small bowl and mix thoroughly. Set aside.

For the baked salmon

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.

Lightly oil a baking dish with olive oil. Place the fillets skin side up in the center of the dish. Make sure that there is some room between them.

Bake until the internal temperature of the fish reaches 125 degrees, about 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and transfer to plates. Top with the gremolata and serve.

Salmon Shopping Tip

A fresh fish should not smell fishy nor have milky, opaque eyes; it should have bright red gills, firm flesh, and a tight anal cavity.

Salmon Cooking Tip

Whole fish should be stored upright in ice in the refrigerator.

Salmon Wine Pairing

Pinot gris/grigio, sauvignon blanc, sémillon, albariño, or rosé with most cooked salmon dishes; pinot noir with salmon in red wine or other strong sauce; grüner veltliner, rosé, or vintage or non-vintage champagne or sparkling wine with smoked salmon.
