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 minute recipe

  • 1.

    Prep the potatoes

    Heat the oven to 200C/fan 180/gas 6. 

    Put a baby potato on its side and make a couple of cuts a few millimetres 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.

    Ribbon the cucumber

    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.

    Bake the salmon

    Sprinkle the SCANDI SALMON RUB over the salmon fillets and press it into the tops and sides (see tip).

    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.

Loved everything about this dish. The potatoes need more cooking time than stated, more like 40 minutes, but it's worth the wait!

Ruth - Feb 04, 2019

Absolutely delicious

Charlotte - Feb 03, 2019

Potatoes need a lot longer than 25 mins, probably nearer 40.

Keshia - Feb 03, 2019

Definitely recommend it! The flavours were amazing just needed a bit of a salt but overall YUMMY!

Hilary - Jan 27, 2019

Potatoes are amazing and the salmon rub is tasty. I recommend using less cucumber than the recipe suggests for 2 people- a whole one is a bit much!

Marian - Jan 25, 2019

Not for us

James - Jan 16, 2019

Delicious meal, perfect seasoning for 4 fillets, I did add cider vinegar to the cucumber and beetroot it was divine

candice - Dec 10, 2018

The second time I used this recipe, we were trying to go 'low carb'. Roasted cauliflower in place of the potatoes worked wonderfully. Will definitely be ordering this kit for a 3rd time!

Kelly - Dec 09, 2018

A new favourite! Very tasty

Haydon - Dec 02, 2018

Only used half the seasoning so it could do 4 as suggested. Didn't try the dill pickle as hubby not a fan. Nice with some asparagus.

D - Nov 06, 2018

Potatoes were great. The salmon topping was bit strong - didn’t go down well with kids. Not a favourite at all. Prefer the Indian/Asian and oriental dishes.

Marian - Nov 04, 2018

Found it a bit spicy for my tast

Thea - Oct 31, 2018

Salmon was very good, but salad was a bit plain

Mairi - Oct 25, 2018

Fiddly potatoes but so worth it!

Janet - Oct 25, 2018

Jeffrey - Oct 18, 2018

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???

Sian - Oct 09, 2018

Fabulous! Love it, love it, love it!
