Salmon with Horseradish Cream Sauce

So, not all people care for horseradish, but we love it. As I've mentioned before on this blog, we eat a lot of salmon. Recently, I've been experimenting with different sauces to serve with it. I happen to see this and thought I'd give it a try. It calls for fresh basil and I have some growing out back. I prepared the salmon in my cast iron skillet--rubbed it with olive oil and seasoned it well and then cooked flesh side down 4 minutes, flipped for 4 more. Pretty simple and pretty good :-)

Horseradish Sauce

3/4 cup low fat sour cream
1/4 cup mayo
2 T fresh basil, chopped
2 T prepared white horseradish
1 t soy sauce
1 T lemon juice

Mix all ingredients in bowl and chill until ready to serve.


  1. What do you season the salmon with, before cooking?

  2. Sometimes just kosher salt and lots of black pepper. Sometimes I use a blend like the McCormick Grill Masters series--like Monterey Steak seasoning. And I always rub olive oil on first :-)
