I was browsing the Epicurious website per usual and came across this beautiful, clean, and simple recipe so I thought I would give it a try. This recipe is perfect either for a holiday dinner or as a clean dinner after you have stuffed yourself silly this holiday season.
1 medium fennel bulb, thinly sliced
1 blood or navel orange, very thinly sliced, seeds removed
1 lemon, very thinly sliced, seeds removed
4 sprigs dill, plus more for serving (optional)
Kosher salt, coarsely ground pepper
1 2-pound skinless salmon fillet, preferably center-cut
3/4 cup olive oil
Sea Salt, Pepper, and Crushed
Preheat oven to 275°F
Toss fennel, orange slices, lemon slices, 4 dill sprigs (if using) and EVOO in a shallow 3-quart baking dish
Season with kosher salt and pepper
Season salmon with kosher salt and place on top of fennel mixture
Roast until salmon is just cooked through (the tip of a knife will slide through easily and flesh will be slightly opaque), 30–40 minutes for medium-rare
Transfer salmon to a platter
Spoon fennel mixture and oil from baking dish over; discard dill sprigs
Season with sea salt and pepper and top with fresh dill sprigs
Next time I am going to add another bulb or two of fennel, but this is definitely going to be a go-to recipe!
I hope you give it a try and love it as much as I do!
