Slow-Roasted Salmon & Spring Vegetables

This salmon is so juicy and tender you could eat it with a spoon. Paired with a roasted vegetable slaw, you won't need 
to serve anything else.

Makes 6 servings
Prep Time
20 minutes
Cook Time
40 minutes
  • 1 fennel bulb
  • 1 bunch baby carrots, multicoloured if possible (about 12)
  • 1 bunch spring onions (about 6)
  • 1 orange
  • 5 tbsp olive oil, divided
  • 1-1/4 lb skinless salmon, cut into 6 fillets
  • 1 shallot, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp sherry vinegar
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp capers
  1. Preheat oven to 275 F. Lightly spray a sheet pan with oil.

  2. Trim woody stems off fennel, reserving fronds to garnish. Halve fennel and remove and discard core, then thinly slice into 1/4-inch strips. Halve baby carrots and cut into 1/4-inch strips. Trim and quarter onions. Halve orange; thinly slice one half and reserve the other half for vinaigrette. Toss fennel, carrot, onion and orange slices in 1 tablespoon of olive oil, then spread on pan in a single layer. Top with salmon fillets. Season with salt and pepper. Bake in oven for 35–40 minutes or until fish flakes easily and vegetables are tender.

  3. Meanwhile, zest and juice the reserved half orange, then whisk together with chopped shallot, sherry vinegar, Dijon mustard and capers.

  4. Serve salmon and roasted vegetables drizzled with vinaigrette and garnished with fennel fronds.
