Salmon with Horseradish Cream Sauce

Horseradish has a pungent kick and pairs perfectly with baked salmon. I mixed the horseradish with scallions, honey, oil and lemon to bring all the flavors to this horseradish cream sauce. The sauce can be prepared in advance, 1-2 days ahead of time and stored in refrigerator.
