One Pan Baked Salmon & Trio of Potatoes
One of my favourite dishes
This one pan dish is a perfect shout after a long and busy day that has been spent out of the home. You come home and realise you still have things to do as well as make dinner!
Its ideal if it has been prepped earlier but nonetheless still relatively easy to put together and stick in the oven while you get on with your evening duties.
Only real ‘foods’ used in the process of making this dish and really that’s what we should strive for daily. Eating living foods that have been plucked from the earth or killed. There are so many nutritional benefits you get from this one pan, from the omega 3 vitamins found in the fish to the antioxidants in the sweet potatoes.
Another reason why I love this recipe is because you can adapt it to your liking, replace the fish for chicken, lamb or beef and it still goes perfect together.
- 2 Medium sized baking potatoes
- 2 Sweet potatoes
- 2 White flesh sweet potatoes
- Handful of fresh thyme (chopped)
- Handful of fresh rosemary (chopped)

For the salmon;
- 500g of fresh salmon (about 4 fillets)

- 1.5tsp Garlic granules
- 1tsp dried dill
- Small handful of fresh thyme (chopped)
- Squeeze half lemon juice
- Preheat oven to 200 degrees
- Chop the potatoes into small bite size chunks, wash then pat dry with some kitchen towel.
- Place the chopped potatoes in a large bowl and season (listed fresh herbs, salt, pepper, garlic) then lastly drizzle the olive oil over it and give it a good mix.
- Transfer onto a large skillet pan and place in the oven at 180 degrees for 20 minutes.
- While the potatoes are in the oven begin preparing the salmon.
- Wash and pat the salmon dry then start seasoning.
- In a bowl add the salmon and all listed seasonings then give it a good mix.
- Slice a lemon in half and squeeze the juice onto the salmon.
- Finish by drizzling a dash of olive oil over the salmon then giving it another good mix / massage to ensure all the salmon pieces have been coated well with seasoning.
- Once the potatoes have been in the oven for 20 minutes, take the skillet out of the oven and add the salmon fillets on top.
- Pop it back in the oven for another 15 minutes to allow the salmon to cook and then remove from the oven once the salmon is nice and golden and the potatoes are nicely crispy on the outside but soft and fluffy on the inside.
- Allow to cool for 5 minutes then serve with your choice of salad.
