'BOTW' Peppered Salmon with Roasted Root Veggies

Gardens are over-flowing this time of year.....or at least most are.....mine is not.....I just raid my mother-in-law's and/or visit the farmers market for fresh beets and sweet baby carrots.  When I came across this recipe, I was immediately drawn to it.  Fresh salmon fillets with caramelized sweetness, roasted veggies, healthy and super quick and easy to prepare.

'Best of the Web' .......

4 medium carrots, coarsely chopped
2 small beets, peeled and coarsely chopped
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon sea salt or salt
4  4 - 5 ounces skinless salmon fillets
1 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper blend or black pepper
1/4 cup frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
2 tablespoons water
Chopped green onions {optional}

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. In a baking pan combine carrots, beets, half of the oil, and half of the salt. Roast, uncovered, for 20 minutes, stirring halfway through roasting time. Transfer vegetables to a platter; cover to keep warm.
Meanwhile, sprinkle salmon with remaining salt and the pepper. In a 12-inch skillet heat remaining oil over medium-high heat. Add salmon; cook for 3 minutes. Turn; cook for 3 minutes more or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. Transfer to platter with vegetables. Add juice concentrate and the water to skillet. Simmer, uncovered, about 1 minute or until thickened; spoon over salmon. If desired, sprinkle green onions over all.
