Baked Salmon with Rosemary, Garlic and Olive Oil

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.

  1. The dish looks amazing!! I love salmon, it’s so tasty. You should try grilling it next time, with just salt. But you need to grill it skin down first, otherwise it’s going to dry the fish.
