This recipe is from Eating Well.com. I made it last night and we loved it. Brussels sprouts are a favorite vegetable around here, and we love salmon. The garlic, wine, and oregano really flavor the fish and veg perfectly. The bonus is that it was fast and easy to make. I had frozen brussels sprouts on hand so that’s what I used. I thawed them in advance in a colander, to make sure they were nice and dry before I roasted them. I also halved the recipe because I only had 1 lb of salmon and there are just 2 of us.
GARLIC ROASTED SALMON AND BRUSSELS SPROUTS
14 large cloves garlic, divided
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh oregano, divided
1 teaspoon salt, divided
3/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper, divided
6 cups Brussels sprouts, trimmed and sliced
3/4 cup white wine, preferably Chardonnay
2 pounds wild-caught salmon fillet, skinned, cut into 6 portions
Preheat oven to 450°F.
Mince 2 garlic cloves and combine in a small bowl with oil, 1 tablespoon oregano, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Halve the remaining garlic and toss with Brussels sprouts and 3 tablespoons of the seasoned oil in a large roasting pan. Roast, stirring once, for 15 minutes.
Add wine to the remaining oil mixture. Remove the pan from oven, stir the vegetables and place salmon on top. Drizzle with the wine mixture. Sprinkle with the remaining 1 tablespoon oregano and 1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Bake until the salmon is just cooked through, 5 to 10 minutes more. Serve with lemon wedges.
