This simple dish of baked salmon with beetroot and dill is so simple to make and full of Scandi flavours.
  • 1 medium beetroot, roasted or boiled
  • 2 fresh salmon fillets
  • ¼ tsp kosher salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp dried dill (or use fresh if you can)
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  1. Pre-heat the oven to180C.
  2. Slice the beetroot very thinly.
  3. Brush the skin side of the fish lightly with olive oil and place skin side down in an oven-proof dish.  Sprinkle with salt and pepper and half the dill.
  4. Cut each beetroot slice in half and then lay the slices all over the salmon like fish scales till the fish is totally covered.
  5. Sprinkle with olive oil and then with the rest of the dill.  Cover with aluminium foil and bake for about 40 minutes or until fish is just cooked.
  6. Serve hot, with potato salad.
