    I just got a toaster oven and tried salmon and disliked the flavor. So I figured that I would try this since horseradish is strong. It worked. I'm single and cooked one small frozen piece of salmon. I used a fat teaspoon of horseradish, olive oil, and lemon juice with lots of pepper and a minced clove of garlic. I marinaded it for about an hour. I cooked it at 375 for at least 15 minutes, and even seared the top for good measure. The salmon tasted much better than my previous attempt. This recipe is a keeper in this house.

    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.

    The second time I made this I added some minced garlic and full strength horseradish to the prepared horseradish, which increased the flavor of the fish.

    The horseradish adds that extra "zing" that makes this an outstanding recipe. I've made this several times and get rave reviews.
