Simple Roasted Salmon with Cucumber-Radish Relish

Roasted Salmon and Cucumber-Radish Relish

An easy roasted salmon supper with a zesty, fresh relish featuring cucumbers, radishes, scallions and prepared horseradish.



4 6-ounce skin-on salmon filets (skinned salmon filets work just fine, too)

1 tablespoon + 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided

Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper

1 cup diced, peeled and seeded cucumber

½ cup diced radishes

¼ cup thinly sliced scallions

2 tablespoons prepared horseradish


  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.  Place salmon on a rimmed baking sheet covered with foil or parchment paper.  Brush salmon with 1 tablespoon of the olive oil and season with salt and pepper.  Roast until salmon is just cooked through, about 10-13 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, combine radishes, cucumber and scallions together in a medium bowl.  Stir in horseradish and remaining 2 teaspoons of olive oil.  Season to taste with salt and pepper.

  3. Remove salmon from the baking sheet using a thin spatula, leaving the skin behind.  Serve immediately with Cucumber-Radish Relish.
