Roasting salmon on top of Brussels sprouts and garlic, flavored with wine and fresh oregano, is simple enough for a weeknight meal yet sophisticated enough to serve to company. Serve with whole-wheat couscous.
2 pounds wild-caught salmon fillet, skinned, cut into 6 portions
Preheat oven to 450°F.
Mince 2 garlic cloves and combine in a small bowl with oil, 1 tablespoon oregano, ½ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper. Halve the remaining garlic and toss with Brussels sprouts and 3 tablespoons of the seasoned oil in a large roasting pan. Roast, stirring once, for 15 minutes.
Add wine to the remaining oil mixture. Remove the pan from oven, stir the vegetables and place salmon on top. Drizzle with the wine mixture. Sprinkle with the remaining 1 tablespoon oregano and ½ teaspoon each salt and pepper. Bake until the salmon is just cooked through, 5 to 10 minutes more. Serve with lemon wedges.

This was absolutely DELICIOUS! I love making salmon on the grill and have never really tried baking it before. Oh man, it was just SOOOO tasty!!! I baked this exactly as written, but I prefer my brussels sprouts more done, so next time I will increase the baking time at least 5 minutes. Oh man, the salmon!!!

Making this a third time. Always enjoyed by all.
I used Chadds Ford Spring Time white wine, perfect! Even worked with a bag of frozen Brussel Sprouts (all I could find). Defrosted , then cut them

I made the mistake of using 2 T dried oregano instead of fresh. It made for a very unpleasant dish....

SO good and easy. Made with Sauvignon Blanc, because I prefer to drink that. I also added about 2# of cubed potatoes (about 1/2" dice). They were a very nice addition.

A nice combination of flavors, very easy to make, and clean up is a cinch.

This was pretty awful. The wine was too much and the (sockeye) salmon had little flavor.

I don't measure much but followed the basic directions. Salmon was really good. Will definitely make again.

My 8 y-o son loves this! We also make the sprouts (follow recipe exactly except salmon) as a side for many other dishes...always goes fast!
Pros: easy, fast, kid loves it
Cons: people who are biased against sprouts
