"I like horseradish...I was very surprised that this worked with salmon...I did add capers to the dish! Very easy to make and everyone liked it!"

"This recipe had a disappointing result. The horseradish spread really spoiled the dish as far as I was concerned. My husband thought the sauce was okay, but nothing special."
