  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.

Really disappointed with this recipe. I followed the instructions exactly though did add lots of seasoning. I had some beautiful skin-on salmon fillets, and was expecting a delicious meal. We just don't think the peppers in particular add any benefit to this dish. The veg. had little taste even though were highly seasoned. The sauce was bland to say the least. Can't understand how there are so many good reviews.Far tastier recipes available for salmon! A definite 'not make again' recipe. My beautiful salmon deserved better!

Tasty and really easy, minimal prep. We halved the recipe for two of us, but kept the full quantity of sauce and it was perfect.

I have made this recipe a few times now and it's lovely every time. I add some tender stream broccoli and asparagus along with the sugar snap peas and some extra mustard in the marinade, I love the taste of the sweetness of the orange with the mustard. A great quick simple recipe.

This has become my favourite way to cook salmon! Really easy, healthy and tasty. I always forget oranges so just use lemon juice instead! Lovely, lovely dish!

So difficult to find great tasting food that is genuinely healthy! This is so simple and so delicious. I have made it 3 times now always substituting the orange for lemon, always making twice as much sauce and marinating the salmon for as long as possible (the tastiest was an all day job, but adjust the cooking time as the citrus is 'cooking' it while marinading). Superb.

Very tasty, cooked the salmon and juice separately as didn't have room in the veg tin. Got lots of praise and even my toddler loved it. Flavour was lovely and not too sweet. Will make again and double the sauce quantity.

Made this tonight, it was pleasant but didn't wow me. Wish I'd read the comments before, I may try it again or use a lemon. Maybe a little less oil too. I didn't use the pepper or sugar snap peas, I used green beans and babycorn and served them steamed. Loved the glaze the salmon got from the honey/juice/mustard combo though.

Has anybody tried freezing it once cooked?

Could I use frozen salmon for this recipe

Yes frozen salmon is fine to use. A frozen fillet should cook in the same time as the recipe states, if you are not too worried about the salmon fillets browning as they are in the oven for quite a long time.
