Horseradish Salmon en Matzo Croûte

My daughter-in-law, Faye has been obsessed with this recipe.  It is inspired by Martha Stewarts’ “Horseradish Crusted Salmon.”  Faye says, “It’s so now.”  So I made it with matzo, instead of breadcrumbs and let her try it.  I’ll let you be the judge.

Serving Size: 2

Ingredients

1 lb. salmon filet (skin removed)
2 matzos, ground fine
½ cup horseradish (fresh or jarred)
1 shallot, minced
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
Zest of 1 lemon
2 tablespoons and 1 teaspoon olive oil, divided
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon pepper

Preparation

Preheat oven to 450°F

Put matzo, horseradish, shallot, parsley, lemon zest, 2 tablespoons olive oil, salt, and pepper into a food processor and pulse until combined.

Rub baking dish with remaining 1 teaspoon of olive oil. You don’t want your fish to stick. Do ya?

Place salmon in the baking dish and evenly distribute matzo mixture on top of fish to create a crusty topping. 

Bake for 5 to 6 minutes on the upper rack of the oven. Then turn oven to broil high for 2 to 3 minutes or until crust is golden brown. 

Bernie's Tip

Watch it carefully while you broil.  Don’t walk away…you don’t want to end up with a burnt croûte do ya?

Your uncle (I think) posted a link to your site for the people who frequent the Jewish forum on Recipezaar. I love your recipes! I was just wondering what new and original thing could be done with mandarins. And my husband will love the salmon recipe. During the year he will only eat it with a wasabi sauce I found in a recipe book but he loves horseradish so you have just given me another healthy Pesach meal.

DID YOU KNOW?

  • Since matzo was traditionally made by hand and was round, the idea of changing how the matzo was made and shaped caused some individuals to believe that the square machine made matzo was not in any way traditional and therefore less kosher.
