This Simple Roasted Salmon with Cucumber-Radish Relish is just the thing to help us ease our way from spring into summer. Cucumbers, radishes and scallions are tossed with a bit of prepared horseradish to create a delicious and easy relish to serve alongside roasted salmon filets. Seriously elegant and it comes together in less than thirty minutes. That's my kind of meal!
This recipe is adapted from one that I clipped from an issue of Martha Stewart Living magazine back in 2012. Eight years ago! Normally recipes that I save for that long without trying them would be more likely to get tossed than made. But there was something so delightfully Nordic about this recipe, not to mention it's simplicity and lovely presentation, I kept it thinking I would eventually get around to making it "someday".
Last weekend that "someday" finally arrived, and I'm so glad it did! What a lovely salmon supper this is. I've made very few changes to the original recipe when adapting it for the blog, but I did double the amount of relish. It is SO fresh and tasty with the salmon, you are not going to want to skimp!
I highly recommend serving this Roasted Salmon with Cucumber-Radish Relish alongside this Warm Barley Salad with Fresh Garden Herbs. They are a perfect match for one another. Add some roasted asparagus and you've got a simply elegant meal that is doable any night of the week.
I hope you'll add this Roasted Salmon with Cucumber-Radish Relish to your meal rotation sometime soon! I know you'll be glad you did. If you give it a try, please let me know in the comments below. I always love hearing from you!
