Mediterranean Roasted Salmon

A boatload of toppings gives this seafood treat a burst of flavor in every bite. It's topped with chopped veggies and a homemade vinaigrette that’s mouthwatering before it’s even cooked! —Wolfgang Hanau, West Palm Beach, Florida

    This was delicious! The only changes I made was to drain a can of diced tomatoes since it's the middle of winter, and I used some green peppers that I had chopped and froze from our garden. We will definitely be having this frequently when our garden is in season! My fillets were not as thick as a slab of fresh salmon so after a few minutes I turned the oven down to 400. Just really wonderful roasted veggie flavor on the salmon.

    Yum, so good! Really enjoyed this dish. Hubby did too. Loved the flavors in this. I didn't serve it with pasta, but that would be good. I'll do that next time. Thanks!

    Absolutely delicious meal. I made it with the lemon-feta angel hair.

    I never had salmon before, my husband did. I had gotten some at a good price, and my husband picked this recipe. It was really very good, a nice recipe to introduce one self on eating salmon. Will make again. And will try some other salmon recipes.

    @deckanddeedee You can find the pasta recipe everyone is suggesting to pair with this here: far as THIS recipe is concerned (Med. Roasted Salmon), I used Tilapia Filets instead, for a healthier version. Yum!

    what am I missing here? I do not see any Lemon-Feta Angel Hair in this recipe. How do you make it?

    This was excellent - I also paired it with the Lemon-Feta Angel Hair and it is certainly a winning combination! We used flounder instead of the salmon - this would probably work well with any fish if you adjust the cooking time.

    My husband and I love salmon and I was looking for different ways to cook salmon. The vegetables, oil, etc are there in need to keep our health in good condition at once!
