Ingredients for Roasted Salmon With Veggies

Potatoes–Baby golden potatoes are baked until fork tender and are seasoned with a perfect blend of savory and spice. You can also try diced regular potatoes or other types of fingerling potatoes.
Carrots– Roasted baby carrots are robust and a great way to add a hint of fresh notes to the roasted salmon recipe. We like to experiment with multi-colored carrots and choose organic if we can.
Red onions– Tangy red onions are roasted until perfectly crisp and accent the rest of the vegetables. The aromas from the onions seep into the tender salmon for the most flavorful flavors.
Lemon– Bright citrus elevates this recipe and makes the salmon and veggies taste more fresh.
Italian seasoning– A simple blend of aromatic Italian seasoning coats the veggies to give them an extra boost of flavor. You can use storebought Italian seasoning or simply make your own.
Red chili pepper flakes– Spicy red chili flakes add a little bit of heat to the recipe without making it overpowering. The perfect balance!
Sea salt and pepper– Kosher sea salt and pepper are simple yet bold and complete this recipe with their classic flavor profiles.
Olive oil– Rich silky olive oil coats the salmon, potatoes, and veggies to highlight their natural flavors. Good, high-quality olive oil is key.
Salmon– You will need four medium-sized salmon fillets. If using frozen fish, be sure to thaw it right before cooking.

How to Make Oven-Baked Salmon and Root Vegetables

First, preheat the oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit, then line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil.

Secondly, add the root vegetables to the baking sheet, then sprinkle them with Italian seasoning, red chili flakes, sea salt, and pepper. Next, drizzle the veggies with oil and lightly toss everything together until evenly coated.

Transfer the tray to the oven and bake for 18 to 20 minutes. Carefully, remove the baking sheet from the oven, then create space for the salmon fillets.
