Salmon with Leeks

Leeks can be extremely dirty and are best cleaned after they've been trimmed and cut. Soak cut leeks in a bowl of cool water; lift them out, replace water, and repeat until no grit remains at the bottom of bowl.

Salmon with Leeks

Source: Everyday Food, April 2006

Ingredients

  • 8 medium leeks, (about 3 pounds), whites and light-green parts only, quartered lengthwise and halved crosswise, cleaned
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1 1/2 pounds salmon fillet, halved lengthwise then crosswise
  • Lemon wedges, for serving

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. On a large rimmed baking sheet, toss leeks with oil; season with salt and pepper. Roast, tossing once, until beginning to soften, 12 to 15 minutes.

  2. Remove leeks from oven, toss with pan juices to coat, and push to edges of baking sheet. Arrange salmon pieces in center, and season generously with salt and pepper.

  3. Return to oven; roast until salmon is just opaque throughout, 10 to 15 minutes (depending on thickness). Serve salmon with leeks and lemon wedges.
