Roasting a side of salmon is a quick, simple way to feed a group. Use tweezers or small pliers to remove any remaining pin bones your fishmonger may have overlooked.


  • 1 side of salmon (about 2 ½ pounds; preferably wild), skinned

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper

  • ¼ cup diced radish

  • ½ cup diced, peeled English cucumber

  • 1 tablespoon prepared horseradish

  • 3 tablespoons thinly sliced scallions (about 2)


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Place salmon on a parchment-lined baking sheet, and drizzle with 2 teaspoons oil. Season with salt and pepper. Roast salmon until just cooked through (it will be opaque around edges), 8 to 10 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, stir together radish, cucumber, horseradish, scallions, and remaining teaspoon oil until combined. Season with salt and pepper. Serve with salmon.
