The Salmon with Herb Potatoes recipe is easy to follow and makes a light meal that does not require much time and effort to prepare.
Salmon has always been my all-time favorite fish. I love smoked salmon, baked in the oven, included in pasta dishes, or any other possible way.
This recipe is very simple and easy to follow. It is a delicious, healthy dish that is also considered vegetarian, pescatarian, and gluten-free.
Fish should be marinated for at least one hour ahead, but baking only takes 25 to 30 minutes. I like using the Provencal Herb mix, but any other herbs can be used.
1lb or 450 g Salmon
1/2 lb or 225 g Baby Potatoes
1 fresh Lime
4 Garlic Cloves
Provencal Herbs Mix
Place Salmon in a bowl, and season with salt, black pepper, Provencal Herb mix, or any other herbs you like most.
Sprinkle with 2 tbsp olive oil, squeeze 1 fresh lime and add finely chopped garlic on top.
Cover with foil and leave it in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
In the meantime, wash and boil baby potatoes for 15 minutes, then discard the water, let them cool down a bit, and season with the same mix of herbs, olive oil, salt, and pepper. Exclude the lime but add some garlic powder.
Transfer salmon with herb potatoes to a greased baking tray and place it into the 385F preheated oven.
Bake for 12 minutes then flip the salmon over and keep baking for another 10 to 12 minutes. Usually, potatoes get nicely done in 25 minutes but if you want them a little bit more crispy, take the salmon out and bake them for an additional 5 to 10 minutes. Keep the fish covered with foil so it won’t get cold.
Serve with your choice of wine and enjoy.
