Dill roasted salmon with new potatoes

Searching for inspiration before going shopping, Delicious magazine came up with the goods.


  • 500g baby new potatoes
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Half a red onion, thinly sliced into rings
  • 2 skinless salmon fillets
  • Juice and grated zest of 1 orange
  • Handful chopped fresh dill


Preheat the oven to 190°C/fan170°C/gas 5. Put the potatoes in a large roasting tin with the olive oil and some sea salt. Roast for 15 minutes, then scatter over the onion and cook for a further 15 minutes.

Turn the oven temperature up to 220°C/fan200°C/gas 7 and nestle the salmon fillets between the potatoes and onions. Drizzle over the orange juice and sprinkle with the orange zest, dill and a good grinding of black pepper.

Roast for 8–10 minutes, until nicely browned and cooked through. Serve 1 fillet per person, with steamed or stir-fried greens.

Didn't have an onion (list making not my strong point) - not the end of the world, but caramelised in the orange juice it would have been a nice addition.
