Asian Salmon with Oven-Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Ingredients
1
1 3/4 pound fresh or frozen salmon fillet, skinned
2
pounds sweet potatoes (4 medium)
1
tablespoon cooking oil
2
tablespoons toasted sesame oil
 
Salt
 
Ground black pepper
1/3
cup reduced-sodium bottled teriyaki sauce
2
2
tablespoons apricot or peach preserves
2
tablespoons dry sherry or orange juice
2
teaspoons grated fresh ginger
1
teaspoon Dijon-style mustard
1/4
teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/4
cup sliced green onion (2)
1
tablespoon sesame seeds, toasted

Directions

  1. Thaw fish, if frozen. Rinse fish; pat dry with paper towels. Set aside.
  2. Preheat oven to 425F. Peel sweet potatoes. Cut into 1-1/2-inch chunks. In a large bowl combine potatoes, cooking oil, and 1 tablespoon of the sesame oil. Sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper. Toss to coat. Place sweet potatoes in a large roasting pan. Roast, uncovered, in the preheated oven for 15 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, in a 1-quart saucepan stir together the remaining 1 tablespoon sesame oil, the teriyaki sauce, garlic, apricot preserves, dry sherry, ginger, mustard, and the 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, about 5 minutes or until slightly thickened, stirring occasionally. Reserve 1/4 cup sauce.
  4. Push sweet potatoes to the edges of the roasting pan; place salmon filet in center. Spoon remaining sauce over salmon and potatoes.
  5. Roast, uncovered, for 20 to 25 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. Carefully transfer fish and potatoes to a serving platter. Drizzle with reserved sauce. Sprinkle with green onions and sesame seeds. Makes 4 servings.
