One-Pan Salmon with Spiralized Sweet Potatoes and Turnips
- 1 turnip, peeled and spiralized using the 5mm blade
- 1 large sweet potato, peeled and spiralized using the 5mm blade
- 3 tablespoons olive oil, or as needed, divided
- salt and ground black pepper to taste
- 4 (6 ounce) salmon fillets
- ¼ (packed) cup cilantro leaves
- ¼ (packed) cup parsley leaves
- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
- 2 green onions, cut into 3-inch pieces
- 2 garlic cloves
- 1 jalapeno pepper, destemmed
- ¼ cup olive oil
- 3 tablespoons white wine vinegar
- 1 teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
For best results, we recommend using:
- Preheat oven to 425°F (220°C).
- Spread turnip and sweet potato onto a large sheet pan. Drizzle 2 tablespoons olive oil over the vegetables; season with salt and pepper. Move the veggies to one half of the sheet.
- Arrange salmon fillets onto the sheet tray. Drizzle 1 tablespoon olive oil over the fillets; season with salt and pepper.
- Bake salmon and vegetables in preheated oven for 6 minutes, turn the vegetables, and continue baking until vegetables are tender and slightly golden and the salmon flakes easily with a fork, 12 to 15 minutes.
- While the salmon cooks, blend cilantro, parsley, dill, green onion, garlic, jalapeno pepper, ¼ cup olive oil, vinegar, 1 teaspoon salt, and ½ teaspoon pepper in a blender until smooth.
- Divide salmon and vegetables between four plates. Drizzle sauce over both to serve.
This simple technique can be adjusted to use your favorite root vegetables or fish. Keep in mind that thinner or more-delicate fillets will cook a bit more quickly, so you may want to spriralize the vegetables with a smaller blade set.
What others are saying
Caro Hodgin says:
This sauce is absolutely insane. I want to put it on everything - roast chicken, pork, and yes, definitely this salmon. I love one pan meals like this, clean up is so easy.
Tal Levitas says:
Tastes good. I enjoyed it. Was easy to make. I didn't get it looking super pretty, but that's my fault not the recipes.
Sam Akinyele says:
One pan so easy clean up! The roasted sweet potato and turnup came out thick firm and delicious. The sauce is amazing! definitely going on more chicken and fish dishes in the future
Erica Schaefer says:
I skipped the starchy potatoes and turnips and just made the salmon, added a little lemon, and served with the spicy jalapeño pepper finish on top. Amazing!
Alexis Pearson says:
I didn't use turnips, I only did sweet potatoes for this recipe. It was so easy and convenient to just throw everything on a sheet pan. I have to make dinners like these more often.
