    From the Test Kitchen

    This dish highlights rich, crispy-skin salmon fillets, which we're topping with a tangy and creamy lemon-caper sauce. We're serving it alongside crispy oven fries (coated with our weeknight hero spice blend) and a light arugula salad.

    Crispy Skin Salmon & Creamy Lemon-Caper Sauce with Oven Fries
    Title
    • 2 Skin-On Salmon Fillets
    • 1 clove Garlic
    • 2 oz Arugula
    • 1 Lemon
    • ¾ lb Potatoes
    • 1 Tbsp Capers
    • 2 Tbsps Mayonnaise
    • 1 Tbsp Weeknight Hero Spice Blend (Onion Powder, Garlic Powder, Smoked Paprika & Whole Dried Parsley)
    Prepare the ingredients & make the lemon-caper sauce
    1 Prepare the ingredients & make the lemon-caper sauce

    Place an oven rack in the center of the oven; preheat to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut the potatoes into 1/2-inch-thick sticks. Peel 1 clove of garlic. Using a zester or the small side of a box grater, finely grate into a paste. Roughly chop the capers. Quarter and deseed the lemon. In a bowl, combine the mayonnaise, chopped capers, a pinch of the spice blend, the juice of 1 lemon wedge, and as much of the garlic paste as you’d like. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.

    Roast the potatoes
    2 Roast the potatoes

    Place the potato sticks in a large bowl. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon of olive oil and season with salt, pepper, and the remaining spice blend. Toss to coat. Transfer to a sheet pan and arrange in an even layer. Roast 21 to 23 minutes, or until browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven.

    Cook the fish
    3 Cook the fish

    Once the potatoes have roasted about 10 minutes, pat the fish dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper on both sides. In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned fish, skin side down. Cook 5 to 7 minutes, or until the skin is browned and crispy. Flip and cook 1 to 2 minutes, or until lightly browned and cooked through.* Turn off the heat. 

    *The USDA recommends a minimum safe cooking temperature of 145°F for fish.

Serve the cooked fish with the roasted potatoes and salad. Top the fish with the sauce. Enjoy!
