rosemary and garlic roasted salmon

Mom, this one’s for you. It’s all here when you need the recipe for one of your book clubs! Just remember that fish doesn’t need to cook for an hour.

Rosemary and garlic roasted salmon is a quick, simple and oh my word delicious way to cook salmon. Healthy, light and bursting with flavor, this is our favorite way to eat the delectable fish! Cook it along with some fresh summer green beans and you have a meal in 10 minutes. Even Mia enjoys it. No lie. She stuffs it in her mouth. We’re still working on those table manners.

Rosemary and Garlic Roasted Salmon serves 4

  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 2 fresh rosemary sprigs, about 1 Tbs chopped
  • 1 1/2 to 2 lbs salmon fillet (I used sockeye)
  • 1 Tbs extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 pinches of sea salt
  • pinch of pepper

Preheat oven to 425°. Peel and chop garlic. Set aside.

Chop the rosemary. Set aside.

Place salmon on a baking sheet (I cover mine with foil because it’s just easier to clean). Distribute olive oil evenly on salmon. Add salt and pepper over the fillet. Next, add the rosemary and garlic and lightly press into salmon.

Place in oven. At this time I also throw in some fresh green beans lightly coated in extra virgin olive oil and a dash of salt. Roast for 10 to 12 minutes until the salmon is flaky and green beans are tender.

Serve and enjoy! Before hand, I roasted a sweet potato pierced with a fork and wrapped in foil in a 400° oven for 45 minutes until tender. You can also cover a pierced potato with a wet paper towel wrapped in plastic wrap and place in the microwave for 6 minutes. A quick and easy meal that’s one of our favorites!

Stuffs it in her face I tell you!!!
