Roasted Salmon With Potatoes and Mushrooms

Salmon is so good for you, I really need to learn to like this more.

Roasted Salmon With Potatoes and Mushrooms

Serves 4

Hands-on Time: 20m

Total Time: 40m


  • 1 pound small new potatoes (about 10), halved
  • 8 ounces button mushrooms
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • kosher salt and black pepper
  • 1 1 1/4-pound piece skinless salmon fillet
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon whole-grain mustard
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 2 tablespoons fresh flat-leaf parsley, chopped


1. Heat oven to 400° F. On a rimmed baking sheet, toss the potatoes, mushrooms, 1 tablespoon of the oil, and ½ teaspoon each salt and pepper.

2. Roast, tossing once, until the potatoes begin to soften, about 20 minutes.

3. Push the vegetables to the edges of the pan and place the salmon in the center. Season with ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper.

4. Roast until the salmon is opaque throughout, the mushrooms are tender, and the potatoes are golden brown, 12 to 15 minutes.

5. Meanwhile, in a bowl, whisk together the vinegar, mustard, honey, and parsley, the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil, and ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper. Drizzle over the salmon and vegetables before serving.


To upgrade this recipe, instead of button mushrooms, use a blend of oyster, cremini, and shiitake varieties
