  1. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Put the beetroot, onions and fennel in a roasting tin and drizzle with 2 tbsp oil. Scatter with half the dill, season, and toss together. Spread out evenly in the tin, then roast for 15 mins until the fennel and onions start to soften.
  2. Pat the salmon dry with kitchen paper, then place on top of the veg. Drizzle over 1 tbsp oil, season and bake for 20-25 mins until the salmon is cooked through and flakes easily when pressed with a fork.
  3. Meanwhile, whisk the horseradish with 1 tbsp oil, half the remaining dill and 2-3 tbsp water to make a dressing. When the salmon is cooked, drizzle over the horseradish dressing and scatter over the remaining dill to serve.
