Maybe adding more horseradish would zip it up?

We made as directed except for subbing pear-infused balsamic vinegar instead of champagne vinegar. Simple and delicious!

I did not have any apple jelly but used orange marmalade instead. It was excellant.

Made this following instructions but subbed apple cider vinegar instead of the champagne vinegar ($$) and green onions (finely chopped) instead of chives. It's a nice change from the lemony-style of salmon recipes usually posted. One of our new favorites!

I made this for my husband and I and didn't think it had as much flavor as you would expect. I made the full glaze for about 1 pound of salmon. Very easy and quick to prepare but needs more zip.

I prepared this dish tonight with Mahi-mahi. It was delightful. I substituted regular apply jelly with Walden Farms apple butter spread, and I used I Can't Believe It's Not Butter instead of olive oil. I made an addition to the recipe by slicing up a gala apple and stir frying an baking it with the fish. It was delicious!!! I made a side dish of wasabi lemon sugar snap peas, but they did not turn out as good as the Mahi-mahi. I suggest serving this over a bed of asparagus or whipped potatos. Something a little less flavorful so you can enjoy the unique flavor of the apple horseradish glaze.
