Orange Marmalade and Maple Salmon with Smashed Baby Potatoes

8 January, 2021

Cooking the salmon with this sauce makes it taste almost candied when done, and the sweet flavor goes well with the creamy insides and crispy edges of smashed potatoes.

I like to serve this with a dollop of Greek yogurt on top of the potatoes when they’re at the table.

Instructions

  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and add the potatoes.
  2. Preheat the oven to 400*F. 
  3. Cook 8-10 minutes, until the potatoes are soft all the way through when poked with a sharp knife or fork.

  5. Combine the marmalade, syrup, and apple cider vinegar in a small bowl until smooth. 
  6. Arrange the salmon filets on the sheet pan and divide the marmalade mixture between the filets, using a spoon to smooth the sauce around each filet.
  7. Drain the potatoes and spread onto a large sheet pan.
  8. Using the bottom of a glass, gently press and “smoosh” the potatoes until they are flattened. 
  9. Drizzle the potatoes with olive oil and Kosher salt, then place the pan in the oven.
  10. Bake 15-18 minutes, until the edges of the potatoes have begun to crisp and the salmon are cooked through and the sauce on top is bubbling and hot. 
  11. Remove and serve the salmon and potatoes together. 

 

Prep it for later: 

  1. Boil the potatoes and drain, then transfer to a resealable bag or container.
