Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 pounds carrots, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 2 medium red onions, cut into 1-inch wedges
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 8 skinless salmon fillets (2 pounds total)
  • 1/2 pound orzo
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 450 degrees, with racks in middle and lower thirds. On a rimmed baking sheet, toss carrots and onions with oil and season with salt and pepper. Roast on middle rack until tender and onions are golden, about 20 minutes, stirring halfway through. Line another rimmed baking sheet with parchment. Season salmon with salt and pepper and roast on bottom rack until opaque throughout, about 12 minutes.

  2. Step 2

    Meanwhile, in a large pot of boiling salted water, cook orzo according to package instructions. Drain, return to pot, and toss with butter, dill, parsley, and lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer 4 salmon fillets and 1 cup vegetables to an airtight container; refrigerate, up to 3 days. Serve remaining salmon fillets and vegetables with herbed orzo.

    I used sockeye salmon and this was delicious. It could just be my oven, but the veggies needed about 25 minutes to reach a nice softness. Perfect simple weeknight recipe; we all loved it!

    This was a good simple recipe. I can't wait to try the Asian Burgers with the left overs.
