Peppered Salmon With Roasted Root Vegetables

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by LifeIsGood

I absolutely love this meal. Simply prepared salmon with a glaze and roasted vegetables. Can you say yum?! I found this recipe in an issue of Better Homes and Gardens. Side note: When I'm eating vegan, this is a great dinner to prepare so my family can enjoy the salmon and veggies, while I just eat the roasted veggies. I love that I don't have to make two separate dinners.

Very good with little prep/fuss! I had 3 very small beets so used them all and doubled the carrots. I also cooked my veggies for 30 minutes so they would be less raw and more roasted. I didn't put a ton of pepper on my salmon but seasoned it enough with s/p to give a good flavor. The orange juice sauce/glaze and green onions on top are a perfect addition!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. In a roasting pan, combine carrots, beets, half the oil and half the salt. Roast, uncovered, for about 20 minutes, stirring halfway through. (My veggies weren't done until about 30 minutes because I like them crispier. You choose how crispy you like your veggies!) Transfer to a platter and cover with foil to keep warm.
  3. Meanwhile, sprinkle salmon with the remaining salt and all of the pepper. If you like more pepper, feel free to add more! In a 12 inch skillet heat remaining oil over medium-high heat. Add salmon and cook for 3 minutes. Turn and cook for 3 minutes more or until fish flakes easily, which may take a little more time depending on your heat.
  4. Transfer the salmon to the platter with your vegetables. Add juice concentrate and 2 Tablespoons water to the skillet you used for the salmon. Simmer, uncovered, about 1 minute or until thickened. Spoon the sauce over salmon. Optional = sprinkle chopped green onions over everything.
  5. Enjoy!
