What You’ll Do

  1. For the salmon:
  2. Preheat oven to 400℉.
  3. Thinly and evenly slice orange and fennel and toss on a sheet pan with 2 tablespoons olive oil, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Arrange salmon on top of the orange and fennel slices. Brush salmon filets with the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil and season with 1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper.
  4. Place sheet pan in preheated oven and roast for 25 minutes, until salmon is just cooked through and orange and fennel slices are caramelized. Remove the sheet pan from the oven and serve alongside the herb yogurt sauce.
  5. For the herb yogurt sauce:
