Now that's a spectacular side of salmon! The fish gets its jewel-like color and deep flavor from a marinade of grated beets, fresh dill, horseradish, and lemon zest. It's roasted in the same dish as the crispy potatoes nestled underneath.

Instructions Checklist
  • Combine beet, dill, horseradish, zest, and 2 tablespoons oil in a bowl. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment. Season both sides of salmon generously with salt and pepper; transfer to sheet. Spread beet mixture on top. Let stand 30 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, preheat oven to 425 degrees. Toss potatoes with remaining 2 tablespoons oil; season generously with salt and pepper. Shingle potatoes in a 9-by-13-inch baking dish, in a single layer. Bake until tender, about 35 minutes; remove from oven.

  • Remove beet mixture from top of salmon with a spoon; spread over center of potatoes. Top beet mixture with fish (you may need to tuck part of tail end under fish to fit in pan), drizzle with oil, and bake until salmon is medium-rare, 10 to 12 minutes. Squeeze with lemon, garnish with dill fronds, and serve.

Cook's Notes

Cooking time will vary depending on the thickness of the fish. For salmon that is 1/2 inch thick, start checking at 8 minutes. For 1 1/2 inches, start checking around 14 minutes.
