Before you start judging my Apple Glazed Baked Salmon, just hear me out. Yes, apples and horseradish sound gross but 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![clear-line]

 When I first started making this recipe (in college), Apple Glazed Baked Salmon prompted me to ask “what exactly is horseradish?” The answer is that it is a plant, but the prepared horseradish we use in recipes comes from the root, which resembles a ginger root.[clear-line]
Unless grated or cut the root has little smell or taste. Once opened it needs to be prepared in a vinegar sauce fast or else the spice will turn to bitterness.

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.

I like to serve my apple roasted salmon with herbed potato salad, my easy vegetable medley or a fresh salad! It pairs well with multiple different options, but I like to serve it with some of my favorites.

I usually paid my salmon with lemon but the apple in this adds such a nice touch of sweetness!

The Apple salmon was so GOOD. I was a little nervous at first when putting everything together, but after it cooked for about 20 min it tasted great. You are right the sweet and spicy really works well together. Thanks for the recipes. Can’t wait to try another one!!!!
