- Make vinaigrette - Whisk together vinegar (portion for salad), mustard, and honey. Add olive oil (portion for salad) while whisking. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)
- Make spice blend - Combine oregano (portion for salmon), paprika, salt, and pepper. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)
- Potatoes - Prep as directed.
- Heat oven to 500F / 260C.
- Spread potatoes on a sheet pan and cover tightly with foil. Transfer to the oven and bake for 10 minutes to get them started cooking. (Watch this video on roasting at high heat.)
- Remove potatoes from oven and reduce oven temperature to 425F / 218C.
- Remove foil from potatoes and toss potatoes with olive oil and oregano (portions for potatoes). Season with some salt and pepper. Return to oven and continue roasting until nearly tender, ~20 minutes more.
- When potatoes are nearly tender, remove pan from oven and spread potatoes out to the sides. Place salmon in the center. Drizzle olive oil (portion for salmon) over salmon and top with spice blend.
- Return pan to the oven and continue cooking salmon and potatoes together until salmon flakes easily with a fork, ~12 minutes more.
- Toss kale and sunflower seeds with vinaigrette.
- Squeeze lemon juice over salmon and serve with Greek salsa on top. Enjoy potatoes and salad on the side.
The potatoes cooked in about half the time, and the salmon took about twice as long as is said. Aside from that, this was good. Might use spinach instead of kale in the future.0 Helpful
Loved the potatoes. Doubled the dressing for the salad. The salsa didn’t hit home for me and we overcooked the salmon which was a bummer - would have cooked it for 6 minutes instead of 10 if I had been thinking it through.0 Helpful
Loved this and so did my husband, toddler and baby.0 Helpful
The salmon was good, but the potatoes were the bomb dot com!!0 Helpful
Loved it! So did my 5 and 3 year olds. They were asking for seconds. It was so easy to prepare and really was a meal you could impress guests with. I will definitely be making this again.0 Helpful
Loved the salmon! I pulled out this recipe to use with some salmon I defrosted last-minute, and while I didn't have olives on hand, the Greek salsa was still a tasty topping. Paired it with leftover herbed potato salad we had on hand, but I'm sure the oregano potatoes and kale salad would be tasty accompaniments for next time.0 Helpful
