Slow Roasted Citrus Salmon

God I love salmon. I could eat it every single day. It’s so versatile and I love creating different marinades and ways to present it. This citrus salmon is so so delicious! It’s sweet and tangy, and so succulent from being slow roasted on a low heat over 35-40 minutes. I love the combination of the different citrus fruits, blood oranges, lemons, limes with the jalapeño, garlic and fresh dill. It’s a really elegant dish and looks extremely pretty but actually only takes a few minutes to assemble and then you let your oven do the rest of the work! Highly recommend this for a dinner party or even just a week night meal for your family! Particularly like to serve it with a light fresh mixed greens salad or my fingerling potato and green bean salad with French champagne vinaigrette .

Preheat your oven to 325 degrees F.

Slice and arrange the fruit, jalapeño and dill sprigs in pretty layers in an oven dish. In the picture, I’m using a foil tray for a client.

Rest the salmon over the citrus fruits. Squeeze over the juice of the lemon, orange and lime. Give it a generous drizzle of olive oil and then season with salt and pepper.

Roast in your oven for 35-40 minutes until succulent and cooked through.
