Apple Roasted Salmon is one of my favorite healthy and quick dinners. Perfect for busy families who need a good dinner fast!
Before you start judging my Apple Roasted Salmon, just hear me out. Yes, apples and horseradish sound gross. The sweetness of jelly combined with the tartness of the horseradish is just a perfect mix and neither flavor is overwhelming. A splash of champagne vinegar and viola! Dinner is served!
If you can’t locate champagne vinegar or you don’t want to spend $5 on one bottle, you can substitute a white wine vinegar. I have also used other types of jellies (apricot and orange), but apple works the best, so I highly recommend you do your best to use it at least the first time before modifying. With all of that said, I dare you to try this unique combination of ingredients.
