This vibrantly flavoured salmon rub was designed with inspiration from SC's resident Norwegian, Halvor, who introduced us to this blend of ingredients. We've paired the salmon with refreshing dill pickled cucumber and the famous Swedish “Hasselback” potatoes, named after the Hasselbacken restaurant in Stockholm, where this style of potatoes was first prepared in the 1700s.

Our 35 mins minute recipe

  • 1.

    Heat the oven to 200C/fan 180/gas 6. Put a baby potato on its side and make a couple of cuts a few milimetres apart. Don't cut right through, just 3/4 of the way down. TIP: Put potato on spoon to stop you going right through it, hold down on board and make slices). Toss them with oil and the Hasselback Potato Seasoning on a baking tray, then roast for 25 mins.

  • 2.

    Meanwhile, peel long strips from the cucumber (discarding the skin), twisting it when you get to the seeds. Put the Dill Pickle Mix in a bowl with 1 tsp of water and mix well. Add the cucumber strips and beetroot slices (optional) to the bowl and toss to coat. Keep aside.

  • 3.

    Sprinkle the Scandi Salmon Rub over the salmon fillets and press it into the tops and sides. When the potatoes have had 20mins, shake them and make some space for the salmon on the tray. Then put the potatoes and salmon into the oven for 8-10 more mins or until the salmon is cooked to your liking.

  • 4.

    Serve the salmon and potatoes with the pickled veg alongside, and a dollop of crème fraîche for dipping.

The meal I liked the least ... I am glad this wasn't my first meal. I would have never cooked another from the recipes.

Patrick - Oct 17, 2018

Far too salty.

Jill - Oct 13, 2018

Potatoes were especially nice

Dolina - Oct 12, 2018

Everyone enjoyed this dish, including the children.

Jeffrey - Oct 09, 2018

This was shocking . Because it wasn't a hot dish I cooked it for my kids. I didn't like anything about it . I am hungry, annoyed, send the kids to bed filled on pain au chocolate and the dinner went in the bin. This was the worse dish I cooked and I don't order from Simply Cook because I am a rubbish cook ... I want diversity but tasty food . At least I know Scandinavian food is not for us or was the recipe poor???

Loved this! Really easy and tasty

Kathryn - Oct 06, 2018

This was a tasty dish, if not a little on the salty side. The pickled veg was surprisingly nice, I added radishes & carrot to mine as not a fan of beetroot. As others have said the potatoes do take way longer than suggested but are worth the effort. Overall a completely different dish that I wouldn’t have tried otherwise, but was pleasantly surprised.

Alison - Oct 06, 2018

Loved the flavours of this dish.

Alice - Oct 05, 2018

Absolutely delicious

Rachel - Oct 02, 2018

Loved it!! Definitely restaurant style... will be having again.

Sarah - Oct 02, 2018

Salmon slightly overwhelmed by seasoning.

James - Oct 01, 2018

Yum! Loved the potatoes.

Adam - Oct 01, 2018

First go at that type of potatoes and would do them again. Salmon was tasty but I wanted a little more spice on mine. Will still order this again though

Potatoes need longer or hotter.

Nicola - Sep 29, 2018

Lovely seasoning on the salmon and the potatoes were delicious!

Nicola - Sep 28, 2018

Really enjoyed this! Lovely seasoning on the salmon and the potatoes were yummy

Emma - Sep 28, 2018

Bit salty but very nice, would make again but not often

Laura - Sep 27, 2018

I made some extra veg as I didn’t think the salad would be enough. The potatoes were delicious, the salmon was really tasty and the dolop of creme fraiche was a lovely break in flavour!

Sandra - Sep 26, 2018


Chris - Sep 25, 2018 you mama's breath

Christina - Sep 24, 2018

Not to my liking, unfortunately.

Jake - Sep 23, 2018

Potatoes were really nice and worth spending the effort!

Liz - Sep 20, 2018


Jane - Sep 20, 2018

I found this dish salty and unpleasant although I liked the tip for cutting the Hassleback potatoes. The flavour of the salmon was masked by the rub. One for those who are less than keen on salmon perhaps.

Amanda - Sep 18, 2018

Really enjoyed this one again. If you have too much salmon rub, you can mix the rest in with the crème fraiche.

Claire - Sep 18, 2018

A bit salty but tasty regardless

Daniel - Sep 17, 2018

Far too salty unfortunately

Kath - Sep 15, 2018

Wish there wasn’t chilli in the mix for the salmon crust.

Sharon - Sep 14, 2018


Sarah - Sep 08, 2018

Bit dull, not really anything special, could easily do that without help. Disappointing.

Nigel - Sep 07, 2018

Brilliant as always!

Rob - Sep 07, 2018

Literally one of the nicest home cooked meals we’ve ever had!

EMMA - Sep 05, 2018

Too salty

Laura - Sep 05, 2018

In the words of Peter Kay, it’s a taste sensation. Every element is absolutely gorgeous. The rub that is added to the salmon is quite hot & spicy so i would’ve expected this dish to at least score 1 on the chilli scale? Anyway possibly the nicest marinade I have ever tasted on a piece of salmon. The spuds & salmon/beetroot salad were delish too & we can’t wait to order this one again.

Claire - Sep 05, 2018

Surprisingly tasty, think I put most of the chilli flakes out of the salmon scrub on my sons. He found it to hot but I thought it was delicious ????

Alex - Sep 05, 2018

Very nice and fresh dish

Duaa - Sep 04, 2018

Salmon was too salty when used the mix in two fillets. Also should’ve been cooked under the grill for proper crusting. It was still part raw after 10 minutes in the oven alongside potatoes.

Stephanie - Sep 04, 2018

Best potatoes ever!

Nicola - Sep 03, 2018

Very tasty

claire - Sep 03, 2018
