Horseradish & Tarragon Roasted Salmon & Yukon Gold Potatoes

This recipe is one of my favorite flavor combinations that balances each of the bold ingredients included to yield a perfectly rounded flavor that is far from overwhelming, it’s harmonious actually. Roasting is also one of my favorite ways to cook, preparing all the ingredients at the beginning, then popping it in the oven and let the oven do the rest of the work. I also enjoy keeping raw horseradish and freshly dried tarragon on hand all the time, as this recipe can be used on any type of meat or even tofu.


Amount                          Ingredient

¼ cup                              Horseradish, raw

2 Tbls                               Tarragon, freshly dried

½ cup                              Olive oil

1 tsp                                 Sea salt

½ tsp                               Pepper

1 tsp                                 Garlic

5 medium                      Yukon gold potatoes, washed & cut like french fries

1 lb                                    Salmon filet, whole, skin on is fine



1. In a bowl combine the horseradish, tarragon, oil, salt, pepper & garlic – whisk together

2. This is a two step process since the potatoes take longer to roast then the salmon does, so pour half of the mixture over the salmon filet so it can marinate while the potatoes begin to roast

3. Place the potatoes in the bowl with the other half of the marinade, toss gently to coat evenly, then pour onto a half sheet pan with silpat liner or foil lining, spread out evenly on the pan

4. Put the potatoes in a 350 degree oven for 20-25 minutes

5. Pull the potatoes out of the oven, rotate the potatoes so they roast on all sides and make room for the salmon filet to go in the middle of the pan, add the salmon filet, skin side down

6. Put back in the oven for 15 more minutes or until the salmon’s fat (white stuff) has surfaced in the middle of the filet (thickest part), the fish should feel firm, but not hard, don’t overcook as it will end up dry

7. Remove & serve with your veggie of the day to complete the balanced meal
