Baked Fish for Ash Wednesday


Fish in Horseradish Sauce

Fish in Horseradish Sauce


This simple dish highlights the spicy-sweet sauce made with horseradish, apples and sour cream. These are very typical ingredients in traditional German cuisine.

Serves 4

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 35 minutes

Total Time: 45 minutes


  • 1 1/2 lb. fresh or thawed sole or flounder filet (with or without skin)
  • 2 T. vinegar or lemon juice
  • 1 T. melted butter
  • 4 T. freshly grated horseradish, or 3-4 T. bottled horseradish or to taste
  • 1 tart apple, grated
  • 3/4 c. sour cream
  • Salt
  • Sugar


Preheat oven to 350°.

Butter a casserole dish large enough for the fillet or fillets. Rinse and pat the fish dry. Sprinkle with vinegar and brush the melted butter over the top. Place the fillets in the buttered dish.

Bake fillets for 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, mix the rest of the ingredients together, seasoning to taste with the salt and sugar.

Spread the sauce over the fish and bake for another 30 minutes, or until the fish flakes easily with a fork and sauce is bubbly.

Serving suggestion: Salted potatoes and steamed broccoli or Brussels sprouts.
