Fried Salmon with Pommes Duchesse and Roasted Vegetables

For New Year I always want to make Salmon. This New Years Eve I had a Cookalong with Frida and Ciana in Frisco, Dallas Texas, USA and me here in Sollentuna Sweden making lunch for them and dinner for me. We made Swedish Toast Skagen, fried Salmon, Roasted Vegetables and Pommes Duchesse.

A lovely end to a year of cookalong. Looking forward to New Cooking adventures in 2021!

Here is the recipe for the Salmon, Pommes Duchesse and Roasted Vegetables. The Skagenröra has it´s own post.

Fried Salmon

  • 600 grams of salmon fillet (s)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • 0, 5 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter

Pommes Duchesse

  • 1 kg floury potatoes
  • 2 eggs
  • 50 grams butter
  • 0, 75 teaspoons salt
  • ½ tsp white pepper

Roasted Vegetables

  • Carrots
  • Broccoli
  • Yellow Beets
  • Brussel Sprouts


Set the oven to 225 celsius degrees.

Duchess potatoes:

Peel the potatoes and cook in salted water until soft, about 20 minutes.

Strain the water and add the butter, salt and white pepper to the potatoes. Mix well with a balloon whisk. As the mash has cooled a bit add the egg yolks and mix some more until fluffy. Click or pipe  the mash on a sheet of parchment paper. Gratinate for 10 minutes in the upper part of the oven, until the puree has taken on color.

Salmon fillet:

Cut the salmon into 4 portions. Salt and pepper to taste and fry the salmon in oil and butter in a hot pan for about 2-3 minutes / each side.

Roasted vegetables

Cut the vegetables in nice slices.

Toss the vegetables in a bowl with a little oil, herbsalt and pepper and spread on a baking tray covered with parchmentpaper. Roast in the oven for about ten minutes or until a little golden. Don´t burn and they can be a little Al Dente!

Serve the Salmon with Pommes Duchesse and Roasted Vegetables.
