Easy Roast Salmon Recipe

Roast Salmon Is Easy, Yet Elegant

Roast chicken and potatoes is one of my go-to meals for quick entertaining. All you have to do is season with herbs and olive oil and toss the two ingredients in the oven. However, when I'm in the mood for something a little more special than chicken, I change it up and use delicate, flaky salmon fillets.

The key is to cook each of the elements (potatoes, asparagus, salmon) for different amounts of time. Start with the potatoes, then add the asparagus, and finally the salmon. It's not as simple as a chicken, but it's a delicious and sophisticated meal that's perfect for a celebratory occasion like Easter. Keep reading for the uncomplicated and rewarding recipe.

  3. Olive oil

  5. 1 bunch of asparagus, cut on the bias into 1-inch pieces
  6. 4 salmon fillets
  7. 1/4 cup parsley, finely chopped
  8. 1/4 cup dill, finely chopped
  9. 1/4 cup green onions, finely chopped
  10. 1/3 cup white wine


  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Place the potatoes and garlic in a large bowl. Drizzle with olive oil and season generously with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Transfer to a large roasting pan and make sure the potatoes are in an even layer.

  4. Meanwhile, rub the salmon fillets with a little bit of olive oil and season on both sides with salt and pepper. In a small bowl, combine the parsley, dill, and green onions.
  5. Remove the pan from the oven and nestle the salmon on top of the potatoes and asparagus. Evenly cover the salmon with the herb and green onion mixture. Drizzle the white wine over the herbs and salmon.
