How to make baked salmon with potatoes

Salmon is one of the healthiest oily fish as it is rich in omega 3, beneficial for the circulatory system, in addition to reducing bad cholesterol, containing anti-inflammatory properties and being good during pregnancy and menopause. It can be cooked in multiple ways: boiled, smoked, raw as in the case of sushi or tartare, and baked, the way we focus on this recipe. It is a simple dish to make and that both children and adults like, so it is a good way to get children to eat fish. In this recipe we show you the steps so that you know how to make baked salmon with potatoes.


  • 4 salmon fillets of 200 grams each.
  • 4 large potatoes.
  • 2 cloves of garlic.
  • White wine.
  • Olive oil.
  • Parsley.
  • Pepper and salt.

Steps to follow to make this recipe:

  • The first thing we should do when we have all the ingredients is peel the potatoes and cut them into slices so that they acquire a rounded shape, trying not to cut them too thick so as not to risk them being raw. We peel the onions and cut them in julienne. To do this, we cut the onion in half, place each half face down on the board and cut from one side to the other into fine pieces. The onion should be cut into an arc. In addition, we peel the garlic and cut it into cubes. The best thing to do to save ourselves work is to buy salmon clean of bones and skin.
  • We introduce everything in a tray, putting the rounded sheets of the potatoes and creating a bottom. We spread the cubes of the two garlic cloves on the potato and cover the contents with a little olive oil, in addition to seasoning it with salt and pepper. We preheat the oven to 150 degrees and we introduce the tray with the potatoes, onion and garlic, but without the salmon. We leave it for an approximate time of 30 minutes, until the potatoes soften.
  • Another option to carry out the previous step is to previously boil the potatoes in water, to later introduce them on the tray, together with the garlic and onion and bake them directly with the salmon; we prefer the first option, because it is tastier. In the case of choosing the first option, while the potatoes are in the oven we serve the salmon in a frying pan with a little oil so that it is done a little on the outside, remaining raw on the inside. It is just a matter of giving the salmon a golden touch and making it a little cooked on the outside.
  • Once we have achieved the golden tone of the salmon and our potatoes, which continue in the oven, if they are already soft, we remove them and add the salmon. Add the amount of a glass of white wine on the contents of the tray and put it back in the oven, at the same temperature as before, until the salmon is done inside. Normally, the time it takes to cook the salmon is not more than 10 minutes, so it is best to check the state of our salmon to avoid burning or being dry.
  • When we detect that the salmon is already cooked, we remove the tray without forgetting to turn off the oven and serve the content. The result is a truly healthy and tasty dish. The total preparation time does not exceed 45 minutes between peeling the potatoes, onions and waiting for both these and the salmon to cook. A good way to accompany this dish is with a little rice.
