Ingredients

14 large cloves garlic, divided
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons finely chopped oregano
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
6 cups brussel sprouts, trimmed and sliced
3/4 cup white wine, preferably Chardonnay
2 lbs. wild-caught salmon fillet, skinned, cut into 6 portions
9 lemon wedges, for serving

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 450°F.

  • Mince 2 garlic cloves and combine in a small bowl with oil, 1 tablespoon oregano, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 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 1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Bake until the salmon is just cooked through, 5 to 10 minutes more. Serve with lemon wedges.
