I am very fond of dinners where most of the dinner is made in the same pan. This dish is incredibly good and is equally suitable for everyday and parties. When you use quality salmon from Frøya that has sushi quality, it is important not to fry the fish for too long. Therefore, I first fry vegetables before I put the fish in the pan in the last minutes. Sandefjord butter is one of the very best fish sauces I know. So this combination is just to look forward to trying.

Step 1

Cut potatoes, carrots and squash into slices. I recommend that they have a uniform thickness.

Step 2

Mix together the simple spice mixture. We will use this on both the fish and the vegetables.

Step 3

Grease the pan with olive oil and place the sliced vegetables in the pan. Finish by pouring over a little more good olive oil, salt and pepper. Place the pan in a preheated oven at 200 degrees.

Step 4

Cut the salmon in appropriate portion size. I serve around 200 grams of salmon per person.

Step 6

To make sandefjord butter, start by adding a little butter to a saucepan. Add finely chopped shallots and cook for a few minutes until the onion is shiny and soft. Add the cream and cook for 5-10 minutes until the sauce has reduced by half. Turn off the heat and add cold cubes with butter. Stir regularly. Season with salt. Add finely chopped chives and trout roe just before serving.

Step 7

Take the pan out of the oven when the salmon is done cooking. Pour over the good sauce and finish with a little extra finely chopped chives and trout roe. This is a lovely dinner that is suitable for both everyday and parties. I have made a video that shows the whole process.
