Horseradish Encrusted Salmon

Happy Friday, gorgeous!

Today for Healthy Food Friday with American Express, I want to walk you through an easy, nutrient-dense, delicious, and filling weeknight meal.

This encrusted salmon is just SO good and satisfying. Plus, it comes together quickly, perfect for those busy weeknights.


I’m really into this dinner, you guys! I can’t stop making it.


Once you make your homemade horseradish (you might cry a little as you open your food processor), you simply add the remaining ingredients, slather your salmon, and cook.

So. Delicious.


Ready to devour.

Surprisingly, when you cook the horseradish, it makes this amazing crust and isn’t a super strong horseradish-y taste. Just a whole ‘lotta goodness!
