We’re not really fish eaters, as a child I absolutely hated fish, hated the taste, the animal itself gave me the creeps and I refused to touch them when we went on family fishing trips, but as an adult, I have started to try and eat it a bit more, and I enjoy small pieces of salmon.
Recently, for something different, I bought some salmon while grocery shopping. Today I decided to cook it for dinner.
This recipe is very simple, which I liked because cooking fish is new to me. I decided to put the olive oil, rosemary, salt and pepper in a small bowl and brush it on to my salmon pieces. I don’t often use fresh herbs so I just used dry for this recipe. Everything I used was measured to taste. Then I sliced fresh garlic on top of the pieces. I used 4 cloves of garlic.
I used parchment paper to cover my baking sheet to make clean up easier. While prepping the salmon and cutting it, I found that there was no easy way to remove the skin/scales, so I baked it as is. The meat came away from the skin easily once baked.
I found this recipe to be really good and both my boyfriend and I enjoyed it.
I chose some simple sides to go with our salmon. I steamed both mini potatoes and brussel sprouts. I cooked some quinoa with vegetable broth. I’m not sure what happened with my quiona, but it didn’t cook up the way it usually does. I found the vegetable broth made it extremely flavourful but a little salty.
Overall, this was a simple and delicious meal and I would definitely make it again.
