Easy, sweet and spicy, one pan meal.

Top Review by IngridH

I thought that this really hid the taste of the salmon, which for some might be a good thing, but I love salmon, so not a good thing for me. The spice mix is a good balance of sweet, spicy, and salty; I wouldn't change it at all, but I would use less on the fish and do a different mix on the potatoes. DH found this a bit one dimensional, since everything tasted of the same spices. I liked it, but felt that using good salmon in this recipe was kind of a waste of money. If you have inexpensive fish, or want to hide the "fishy" taste, this may be the recipe for you.

  1. Preheat oven to 450.
  2. In small mixing bowl, combine chili powder, brown sugar, and salt.
  3. In 13 x 9 glass baking dish, toss potatoes with onion, olive oil, pepper, and 1 Tbsp of the chili mixture until evenly coated. Cover with foil and roast 20 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, use remaining chili mixture to coat salmon fillets. Place on top of potatoes, skin side down, and roast uncovered 10-12 minutes, or until fish flakes easily and potatoes are tender.
