"'I'm always experimenting with new ways to prepare seafood,' says Betty Jean Nichols. Here's a quick way with salmon - creatively seasoned and paired with little potatoes - ideal for a winter dinner."

red thin-skinned potatoes (about 1 1/2 in. wide)
olive or salad oil
1 (8 ounce)
chopped fresh cilantro
4 (6 ounce)
salmon steaks (3/4 in. thick each)
Easy to make and verrrry tasty! I would only recommend if potatoes are medium to big size to slice to smaller pieces, than they'll be evenly baked. I also added some onions (sprinkled them with additional teaspoonful of oil so they didn't get charred). Yum;-)
Overall a great recipe. The potatoes neeeded a little more time in the oven before adding the salmon. Next time I will reduce the chili pepper by half.
I really like the spice combination for the fish, would have never come up with that on my own!! It was alot of trouble, had to go in and out of the oven way too many times. Too time consuming for my liking and the potatoes need SOME kind of flavor!
I liked the recipe fairly well, though I changed it quite a bit. I loved the potatoes, but instead of cutting them up into slices, I cut them into chunks. I also changed the fish topping to 1 tsp dill weed, 1 Tbsp minced onion, 2 tsp olive oil, and 1-2 Tbsp squeezed orange juice. I wasn't crazy with the orange peel and the hot spices. My other tip would be to bake a little longer in the oven. Instead of 8-10 min on the potatoes, I did 12 min. The fish I cooked for 5 min longer than the recipe, after I rinsed it in hot water. Otherwise, no complaints. I will make this recipe again, especially the potatoes!
I was disappointed in the flavor of this. I think next time I'll do a different topping/rub for the salmon. You definitely need the oranges on top -otherwise the flavor is dry. I like the idea of roasting the potatoes in the same pan.
