Ponzu Roasted Salmon

This recipe from Bon Appetit will impress any lover of Asian food, with few ingredients but maximum flavour and beautiful colour.

Prep Time: 10 Minutes Cook Time: 30 Minutes Serves: 2


  • 2 small orange kumara, halved and cut into pieces
  • 4 new potatoes, cut into rounds (we love Wilcox Baby Pearlas)
  • 4 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil, divided (we love Olivado)
  • 350g-450g skin-on salmon fillet (we love Regal Salmon)
  • 1 tbsp minced ginger
  • 1 small garlic clove, finely chopped
  • 3 tbsp lime juice
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce (we love Kikkoman)
  • ½ teaspoon honey
  • ¼ teaspoon toasted sesame oil (we love Lee Kum Kee)
  • 2 celery stalks, thinly sliced on an angle
  • 1 pear, cut on an angle into chunky pieces

To serve
Sliced spring onion and toasted sesame seeds


  1. Preheat oven to 190 degrees celsius. Coat potatoes with 1 Tbsp of the olive oil on a baking tray and season with salt. Arrange potatoes cut side down and roast until tender, 20-30 minutes.
  2. When potatoes are halfway done, coat salmon with 1 Tbsp of olive oil on another baking sheet tray and season with salt. Reduce the oven temperature to 165 degrees celsisus, and roast salmon until just opaque in the center, around 14–16 minutes.
  3. To make the dressing, mix together the ginger, garlic, lime juice, soy sauce, honey, sesame oil, and remaining 2 Tbsp of olive oil. Season to taste.
  4. Break potatoes and salmon into large pieces. Divide potatoes, salmon, celery, and pear among plates. Drizzle with ponzu dressing, then top with spring onion and sesame seeds to serve.
