Tips for Working with Fresh Horseradish
In case you’ve never worked with fresh horseradish before, we’ve got a few tips for you. You can find it in your local grocery store likely in the produce refrigerator near the mushrooms. It has a rough brown skin on it, similar to a celery root and might come wrapped in clear plastic.
Before using, you’ll want to peel off the brown skin. This recipe calls for adding it to the food processor and until processing it until it is finely shredded. You could do it by hand but it’s pretty labor intensive and is very pungent.
And to that effect, no matter which way you process it, do be careful of the odor! It’s strong. So don’t stick your face close to it or take deep breathes in. At this point you may be wondering if it’s going to be too much on top of the salmon, but after adding the additional ingredients to it (namely vinegar) and baking it, it helps mellow it out.
