Apple and Horseradish-Glazed Salmon


Horseradish is delicious with oily fish or rich meat ... by itself, steeped in vinegar, or in a plain sauce.

Horseradish has been prized for its medicinal and culinary qualities for centuries.

Legend has it the Delphic oracle told Apollo, “The radish is worth its weight in lead, the beet its weight in silver, the horseradish its weight in gold.”

During the Renaissance, horseradish consumption spread from Central Europe northward to Scandinavia and westward to England.

By the late 1600s, horseradish was the standard accompaniment for beef and oysters among all Englishmen. The English, in fact, grew the pungent root at inns and coach stations, to make cordials to revive exhausted travelers.

Early settlers brought horseradish to North America, and commercial cultivation began in the mid 1850s, when immigrants started horseradish farms in the Midwest. Horseradish is still planted and harvested mostly by hand.

Horseradish has only 2 calories a teaspoon, is low in sodium, provides dietary fiber, and stimulates digestion in tasty style.
