Irish Salmon with Tangy Horseradish Sauce

While this recipe is a traditional Irish one, it works with any smoked salmon—the omega 3 fat in each serving is great for your heart! Enjoy the fish on whole-grain bread or traditional Irish brown soda bread that tastes amazing straight from your oven.

1 tablespoon Light Mayonnaise
1 tablespoon chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
2 teaspoons prepared horseradish
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
Dash of freshly ground black pepper
4 slices Irish Soda Bread
6 thin slices smoked salmon, about 4 ounces
Fresh dill sprigs for garnish
  • Combine first 5 ingredients in a small bowl, stirring well.
  • Place 2 slices whole grain bread or Irish Soda Bread on each of the 2 plates; top each slice with 3 salmon slices and about 3 teaspoons of the sauce. Garnish with dill, if desired.

Cooks use the terms "horseradish" or "prepared horseradish" to refer to the grated root of the horseradish plant mixed with vinegar. Prepared horseradish is white to creamy-beige in colour. It will keep for months refrigerated but eventually will darken, indicating it is losing flavour and should be replaced. The leaves of the plant, while edible, are not commonly eaten, and are referred to as "horseradish greens"."
