One of the most memorable parties I ever hosted, was my first grownup Christmas party.

It was my first Christmas as a newlywed, as a working girl with a job that required a degree, and as a homeowner.

I felt very very mature.

MY OTHER RECIPES


Our little 1930’s bungalow was decorated with brand spanking new Christmas decorations, and I had dog-eared hoards of recipes in my favorite cookbooks, trying to come up with the perfect party menu.

I wanted it to be a real grownup party… The kind where we provided everything, for the sake of elegance, hospitality, and quality-control, and no one brought food or drinks. (A Type-A tendency I’ve let go over the years.)

Finally I settled on serving various heavy h’ordeuvres, some that could be made ahead, and some that would need to be prepared right before the party. Lt. Dan was in charge of cocktails, and I would do all the cooking myself, in my new kitchen.

So exciting!

The problem was, I’d never made that many dishes all by myself. I’d always had my mom, or several friends to cook with, when hosting a get-together.

The day of the party I felt completely overwhelmed.

Fortunately for me, an older wiser friend had anticipated this, and brought me a traditional Smoked Salmon Recipe with Creamy Horseradish Sauce to serve at the party.

She brought it over several hours before the party started and told me to cross a couple recipes off my list. The salmon would be more than enough to fill in the gaps.

At first, I was hesitant… Change my plans last minute?

Yet, I gave in to her kind advice and generous gift.

The party was a huge success!

The food was a hit. Our friends were in rare form that night with jokes and stories. Plus, I had time to shower and have a glass of wine beforehand, due to my friend’s salmon recipe.

I have made several renditions of this salmon recipe over the years. She smoked the salmon out on her grill, providing a dusky flavor and crusty exterior. Yet most of us don’t want to stand out by the grill this time of year (or may not have a grill or smoker.)

So, today I’m sharing my indoors rendition, a 10-Ingredient Smoky Baked Salmon Recipe with Horseradish Sauce, that can be made in less than 30 minutes.

To make this marvelous cheater version, place a whole wild salmon fillet on a baking sheet and massage it with brown sugar and liquid smoke.

While it’s baking, whisk together a quick sauce of shaved shallot, horseradish, sour cream, and a touch of dijon mustard.

The beauty of this Smoky Baked Salmon Recipe with Creamy Horseradish Sauce is that is tastes fabulous warm or cold. You could even make it a couple days ahead and keep it in the fridge. Then pour the sauce over the top right before serving!

    I have never tried to comment before, hope I do this correctly.
    I have always wanted to try salmon, however my husband is very reluctant to. I know that he does NOT like horseradish, is there something else you could recommend for a topping, sauce or dip?

    I don’t know if I could decide whether to serve this as a main or as a stunning appetizer. Looks amazing either way! But then, anything with horsey sauce is a winner in my book.

    I would like to use your friend’s grill method. How did it differ?

    • Sommerposted June 10, 2016 at 11:28 am Reply

      Cook it over a very low heat charcoal grill with soaked hickory wood for flavor. The salmon will take 40-60 if the grill is low enough… But that provides a great smoky taste!
