Can we take a second to talk about how gorgeous this wild Alaska sockeye salmon is?! I love the ruby red color so much! Sockeye is one of the more flavorful varieties of salmon and one of my personal favorites! It went perfectly with the bold greek spice blend used in this recipes. And of course, it went perfectly with the potatoes because what doesn’t go with perfectly roasted potatoes?!

Seasoning for potatoes

Speaking of the potatoes, I tossed them with olive oil, lemon, garlic, and plenty of fresh herbs. Fresh oregano gives these potatoes that classic Greek flavor, and then fresh mint adds a little something special! I love using fresh mint in savory dishes—if you haven’t tried it yet, you’re in for a treat!

For the salmon, I made a blend of herbs and spices typically found in Greek cuisine. The usual oregano, garlic, salt and pepper make up the most of the blend but then a tiny amount of cumin and cinnamon are what make it really special. The Sockeye has so much flavor itself, you don’t have to worry about the spices overwhelming it!

I really love how easy dinners like this one are. First you roast the potatoes for about 25 minutes on their own, then nestle in the salmon and put the whole thing back in the oven for another 10 minutes or so. Cook times may vary depending on the size of your salmon pieces so make sure to keep an eye on them. The salmon should be opaque and flake easily with a fork when it’s done. I like to turn the broiler on for the last couple minutes so that the salmon gets a bit of a crust and the potatoes get nice and crispy. Then you just put the sheet pan out and there’s dinner! Easy peasy.

This recipe is Whole30 compliant, but if you’re not doing Whole30, I would definitely serve it with some Tzatziki for maximum deliciousness.

    Great salmon dish! I did modify a bit by removing the fish after cooking then added the capers with the juice of one lemon and 2T of butter to make a easy sauce. Fantastic and quick main course for a week night
