Making weeknights flavorful and fun with this buttery roasted salmon and a bright and zesty horseradish gremolata.

I love a recipe that makes a weeknight feel special without taking a bunch of work (because who has time for that?) I have to make a conscious effort to eat a little variety during the week, or I’ll resort to a bland diet of plain chicken and sauteed zucchini (it gets the job done, but it’s far from enjoyable!) Roasted salmon is one of the best ways to make a slightly elevated dinner because it’s so easy to whip up in less than 30 minutes and serve with an easy sauce or dressing, or something fun and unexpected like this horseradish gremolata. It’s quick and healthy and it works all year round!

Easy Weeknight Salmon

Salmon is one of my favorite dinners because it’s a low-effort, high-reward situation. You just have to preheat an oven and be mindful not to overcook the fish and you can have a restaurant-quality meal in less than 30 minutes! Where many new cooks go wrong is overcooking the salmon until it’s super pale pink, when you really just want to roast it until it’s gently flakey.

Horseradish Gremolata

Gremolata is one of my all-time favorite things to serve with protein. It’s flavorful, easy, and also super fun to say. Traditional gremolata is an amalgamation of chopped parsley, lemon, and garlic. It’s less liquidy than a chimichurri or a pesto, so I find it works really well over a moist protein such as salmon. Also, who doesn’t like saying the word “gremolata?”

The extra fun ingredient in this sauce is the addition of Bubbies Horseradish, which adds a bright and sharp flavor to the gremolata. It works perfectly against the backdrop of the buttery, mild fish, and I find it to be just adventurous enough while still being a great dish to serve to picky eaters.

Bubbies is my go-to horseradish because of the ingredients and quality of flavor. Some horseradishes have strange preservatives and oils in them, but I prefer a product with a short ingredient label that I can easily understand. You can taste the quality, too! It’s a fun way to experiment with flavors without sacrificing quality or needing to buy a complicated list of ingredients.

Without further ado, it’s time to make some delicious roasted salmon! I’d love to see your beautiful creations so don’t forget to tag me on Instagram!
