Earth, Sea and Fire Salmon

Earth (potatoes, onions, roasted peppers), Sea (fresh salmon) and Fire (your favorite oven) make this a winning recipe. It will reduce well if you don't need to feed 8 people. I have not bothered with the sesame oil but I have given it a spray of butter flavored Pam before baking.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Coat the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking dish generously with olive oil.
  2. Arrange potato slices in a layer on the bottom of the baking dish.
  3. Season with a little salt and pepper.
  4. Place a layer of onions over the potatoes, then a layer of roasted peppers, seasoning each layer with salt and pepper as desired.
  5. Place salmon fillets over the vegetables in the dish, and season with lemon juice, salt and pepper. Place whole mushrooms over the fillets, and drizzle them with sesame oil.
  6. Bake for 45 minutes in the preheated oven. Fish should flake easily with a fork, and potatoes should be tender.

This was okay but somehow I think I like potatoes and fish cooked separately, rather than combined as in this dish. I reduced this recipe to serve 3 people but used the amount of roasted red peppers (which was less than required) I had left over from another recipe and also used chili sesame oil for the last step but it seemed to need more of something--maybe some herbs and/or garlic would have added the extra something this recipe needed to kick it up a notch. Thanks for sharing!
