This is one of the nicest and easiest baked salmon recipes I have found.
I am always looking for new ways to cook salmon. It is such a healthy fish and makes a great quick and easy week night dinner.
The bonus? This is a one pan meal. Everything cooks on a sheet pan. Love it!
Sour cream seasoned with horseradish and dill makes a quick and tasty sauce for roasted salmon and root vegetables in this Eastern European-inspired meal.
You will need: One 18×13-inch (45 by 33 cm) rimmed sheet pan, lined with foil.
Baked Salmon Recipes: Roasted Salmon and Root Vegetables with Horseradish Sauce
- 6 carrots, trimmed and cut into 1/2-inch (1 cm) thick slices
- 4 parsnips, trimmed and cut into 1/2-inch (1 cm) thick slices
- 4 beets, trimmed and cut into 1/2-inch (1 cm) thick slices
- 3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
- Salt and freshly cracked black pepper
- 1 teaspoon dill, dried
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- 3 tablespoons horseradish
- 2 teaspoons cider vinegar
- 4 - 6 ounce salmon fillets, skinless, patted dry
- Preheat oven to 425°F (220°C).
- On a prepared pan, toss together the carrots, parsnips, beets, 2 tablespoons (30 mL) oil, 1/2 tsp (2 mL) salt and 1/4 tsp (1 mL) pepper. Spread in a single layer on the sheet pan. Roast in preheated oven for 25 minutes.
- Meanwhile, in a small cup, combine the dill, sour cream, horseradish and vinegar until blended. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
- Remove the pan from oven and nestle fish among the vegetables, spacing the pieces evenly. Brush the fish with the remaining oil and season with salt and pepper. Roast for 9 to 14 minutes or until the vegetables are fork-tender and the fish is opaque and flakes easily when tested with a fork.
Makes 4 servings, but can easily be multiplied to serve more.
Serve with the horseradish sauce.
Tip:For a lighter dish, substitute an equal amount of plain Greek yogurt for the sour cream.
