Roasted Honey-Dijon Salmon with Spring Vegetables

This is a refreshing light take on salmon, with a focus on seasonal spring veggies. 


  • 2 bunches red radishes, ends trimmed
  • 1 bunch thin carrots, ends trimmed, halved crosswise
  • 1 large shallot, sliced lengthwise
  • 2 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon olive oil, divided
  • 1 3/4 teaspoons kosher salt, divided
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper, divided
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon sriracha
  • 1 (1 1/2-pound) side of salmon, skin removed
  • 8 ounces fresh sugar snap peas, strings removed, halved lengthwise
  • 1 bunch fresh asparagus, trimmed
  • 1/2 cup fresh mint and/or fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves, for serving
  • Lemon wedges, for serving


  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F. Cut radishes in half; quarter any large radishes. Combine radishes, carrots, and shallot in a medium bowl; toss with 1 tablespoon olive oil, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.
  2. Spread vegetables in an even layer on a large rimmed baking sheet; roast in a preheated oven until vegetables have started to sizzle and brown, about 10 minutes.
  3. Stir together honey, mustard, and sriracha. Drizzle salmon with 2 teaspoons olive oil, and sprinkle with 3/4 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Spread mustard mixture over top of salmon.
  4. Remove vegetables from the oven. Toss vegetables; clear a space in the center for the salmon. Nestle fish onto a baking sheet, and return to the oven. Roast 10 minutes.
  5. Toss snap peas and asparagus in a bowl with remaining 2 teaspoons oil, remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt, and remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Remove pan from oven; scatter asparagus and snap peas around salmon, stirring so they make contact with the pan.
  6. Return to the oven, and roast until salmon flakes easily with a fork and vegetables are tender, about 10 minutes. Transfer to a platter; sprinkle with herbs. Serve with lemon wedges.
