Roasted Salmon with Idaho® Fingerlings and Kumquats

A light and healthy recipe for roasted salmon bathed in a citrus marinade with roasted fingerling potatoes and seasonal kumquats. With only 15 minutes of hands on time, this simple easy recipe is perfect for busy weeknights.

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound Idaho® fingerling potatoes, halved
  • 3 shallots, cut into wedges
  • 1 cup kumquats, halved
  • 1-2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Generous pinch salt and pepper
  • 1 pound salmon - skinless, and portioned into 4 ounce pieces
  • A few thyme sprigs

Salmon Marinade:

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely minced
  • Zest from one orange, divided
  • Juice from one orange, divided
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cracked pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Place potatoes, shallots, and kumquats on a rimmed baking sheet, drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Toss to coat well and spread out evenly. Bake 20-30 minutes, or until tender.
  3. While the potatoes are roasting, make the salmon marinade. Stir the olive oil, honey, garlic, 1/2 of the zest, 2 tablespoons of the orange juice, salt, pepper and cayenne in a small bowl.
  4. Place salmon in a medium bowl and pour the marinade overtop, turning salmon to coat all sides. Leave on the counter.
  5. When the potatoes are fork tender, give them a quick toss and nestle the salmon in between the potatoes, drizzling any remaining marinade over the salmon filets.
  6. Scatter with a few thyme springs and bake until salmon is cooked to desired doneness, 8-12 minutes, depending on thickness. Broil for the last few minutes to add beautiful color.
  7. Garnish with remaining orange zest, thyme and a little more orange juice to taste.
