Method

  1. Preheat the oven to fan 180C/conventional 200C/gas 6. Boil the potatoes for 10 minutes until tender. Meanwhile, whisk the mustard, orange juice and honey together in a bowl to make a marinade. Turn the salmon fillets in the marinade until evenly coated, then set aside. Deseed the peppers and cut into thick strips.
  2. Drain the potatoes and tip into a shallow ovenproof dish or roasting tray with the peppers and sugar snap peas. Drizzle over the oil, salt and pepper, then toss everything together. Put the salmon fillets on top of the vegetables and pour over the marinade. Bake for 20-25 minutes until the salmon is cooked and just starting to brown.

Delicious, we thoroughly enjoyed this one. Quick and easy to throw together - a good mid-week dinner when you're short on time.

I use chicken breasts for this as we don't like fish, and use what ever veg I have

Lovely. I agree that the marinade is not quite enough for 4; next time I'll double it. And I used floury potatoes rather than new, which worked well.

Swapped things around a bit - lemon instead of orange and left out the potatoes and added cherry tomatoes instead and had pasta with it. Very nice

Cooked this after reading the above comments and took some heed....used courgette instead of peas (which I didn't have) and added some thickly sliced garlic. Roasted the veg for 10 mins before adding the salmon to make sure it had caramelised a little by the time the salmon was cooked. My salmon fillets had skin on so placed them skin-side up so the skin crisped up - very tasty - will probably cook this again, or variations of it. Thinking about using thick cut cod or haddock next time.

Made this one Friday night and was one of the biggest success stories we've had. Very quick and easy to make. Will be making this again soon.

Just made this for dinner for 2 and it was very tasty and quick to make. I used a mandarin orange, tsp mustard, tsp honey - quite a lot of juice from mandarin, so there was plenty left to drizzle over veg before final roasting. I used up baby corn and asparagus along with the peppers - any veg would do. I think I will also give this a go again with an asian twist - maybe use lime, ginger and soy in the dressing with some 5 or 7 spice seasoning and steam some pak choi too

We're a big fan of fish esp salmon and cook a lot of recipes from this site. This was nice but not as nice as some of the others on here, we found the sauce a bit too runny (juicy instead of thick), wondering if perhaps marmalade and mustard with just a splash of the orange juice may be better??

We used the sugar snap peas & peppers but agreed that most veg would probably work. May try again but will attempt to make the sauce slightly thicker.

I'm not a huge fan of fish but my boyfriend is. I cooked this and loved it! I added in a few extra vegies and more of the sauce. It is so delicious and a great combo of flavours.

Ok, so i've just had this dish for dinner, i followed the recipe exactly other than i used lemon instead of orange and i added garlic to the oil and mixed it up. I liked it, it could have ben better though, i made 4 two and i would also say u need to double up marinade if u are making for four. i'd also say the whole dish needs longer to cook, so next time while the potatoes are par boiling i'll put the veg in the oven, then when potatoes are ready i'll then add them and the salmon, id also leave in oven an extra 15 mins too.
All in all though a great tasty dish with a lot of potential, i will def b making again, oh and i'll be using 2 tbsp instead of 2tsp of honey as well

This was delicious and will definitely be made again. However next time I would roast the veg and potatoes for longer before adding the salmon. The marinade had a very subtle hint of mustard, in future I may double up on the quantities. All in all a very easy but satisfying dish.

This is a very tasty meal. I got a very good compliment from my husband who is not a big fan of fish particularly salmon. He said he wouldn't mind to eat this meal again and I definately have to cook it again. I used potatoes, tomatoes and carrots as these were what I had and roasted them for 15 mins before I put the salmons on the top and continued to bake for 25 mins. Highly recommended!

Great flavours even other half who claims not to like salmon ate it and said he would have again. Used up left over boiled new pots and I agree the marinade was just right for 2 if making for 4 will double marinade/sauce. Will make again for a simple dinner party.

Lovely!
I changed a few things. Used different veg and potatoes were king edwards cut up.
Used a few drops of Worcestershire sauce and tabasco to give a bit of a kick in the marinade.
Used chilli infused olive oil instead of garlic and was really yummy.
I thought the veg would be undercooked because at the end of the time, they looked pale however they were al dente except for the potatoes that were soft and tasty.
Worried there was no sauce to serve with but didn't need it.
Would recommend this as a lovely mid week meal.

We absolutely loved this recipe. Indulged in seconds and thirds. It leaves a most pleasant aftertaste in the mouth. I look forward to making it again soon.

This is one of my staple salmon dishes! I use whatever veg I have, often red pepper and carrot, but like to use maris piper potatoes. I slice them and roast them for a bit longer before adding the rest to crisp them up. Great dish- so easy and readily adjusted to feed any number of people!

Very tasty and simple, I added 2 cloves of crushed garlic to the marinade as I didn't have any garlic infused oil.

This was very nice but I've got to say that neither my husband or I could taste the mustard/ honey - it really just tasted of salmon with roasted veg. However the ease of making it all in one pot was great and the fish was perfectly cooked. Perhaps I just need to play around with the flavours a bit.
