Preparing Roasted Salmon

Of course, you can’t write an Alaskan travel series on a food blog without mentioning the incredible seafood. While we had incredible Alaskan halibut and giant king crab legs, my most memorable food experience took place on board the Ruby Princess during their seafood extravaganza lunch buffet.

Much to our delight, the star of the show was a giant wild Alaskan salmon roasted whole with tomatoes and olives. Tender, juicy and packed with flavor, my family of four probably went up for three servings each.

Fresh Oregano

When I returned home, I couldn’t wait to recreate this incredible seafood dish in the form of a fast and easy sheet pan dinner recipe. Lucky for me, my herb garden is in full bloom so I decided to add fresh oregano to the pan before roasting the salmon in a hot oven.

To prepare, you simply toss onion, tomatoes and olives with a little olive oil and salt then place the whole salmon filet on top. Garnish with lemon slices, salt and pepper then roast until the salmon is flakey and fork tender, about 16-18 minutes.
