We’re celebrating the flavors of fall in this dish, which features a pair of delectable, seasonal sides: rich mashed sweet potatoes and a celeriac-apple sauté. Once peeled, celeriac—or celery root—has plenty of crisp flavor and texture to offer. (Slicing off its tough exterior to create flat sides is an easy way to prep it.) Sautéed with tart apple, then finished with salty-sweet pecans, parsley and chives, the celeriac perfectly balances the warm flavors of the salmon’s barbecue-style spice rub.

BBQ Salmon & Mashed Sweet Potatoes with Celeriac-Apple Sauté ingredients
Prepare the ingredients:
1 Prepare the ingredients:

Wash and dry the fresh produce. Heat a medium pot of salted water to boiling on high. Peel and large dice the sweet potatoes. Using a sharp, sturdy knife, peel and small dice the celeriac.

Peel, core and small dice the apple; place in a bowl and toss with the vinegar to prevent browning.
