Peppered Salmon With Roasted Root Vegetables

"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."

Ready In:




  • Preheat your oven to 425 degrees F.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Enjoy!

  1. I love fish and have it often -average 4 times a week- so was delighted to make this recipe as it is a new twist for me with this sauce which I will certainly use again with other fish, yum! No beets available so I used carrots and sliced Brussels sprouts which worked very well. Went with smoked salt and a fairly good grind of pepper. So simple to put together! and a real treat. Thanks for this keeper LIG.
  2. Great recipe! I loved the roasted carrots and beets. I made some rice to serve alongside. The orange glaze was perfect on the fish. I had 4 5 oz portions and needed a bit more sauce, so I will adjust accordingly next time. Thanks for a great recipe!!

  3. 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!

Hello! I have a wonderful husband and two fantastic kids. I love to read, have fun with family and friends, stay active with: running; soccer; golf; biking; hiking; and gardening. I love to travel. I'm looking forward to more international travel someday. Cooking has become a passion for me. I love to read cookbooks, watch the Food Network, and try new recipes. I have way too many cookbooks! A few of my favorites are: Barefoot Contessa (any - but especially 'Family Style'),Rachael Ray 30-Minute Meals 2, Roasting by Barbara Kafka, Beyond Parsley & The Black Dog Summer on the Vineyard Cookbook. I try to carefully choose recipes that I think my family will enjoy, which is why most of my ratings are 3-5 stars. Happy cooking!
