Go-To Rosemary Salmon and Veggies

I was not going to post this. I have another rosemary recipe I want to try that is going to be a little more work and if it works out I'm going to be ready for some serious accolades (so be ready to dish them out).

Then I started thinking if there's anyone out there like me, you want that 3-5 ingredient weeknight dinner idea. Don't you? Don't lie. We can't all be Martha all the time. I don't care how bomb you are. So here you go: My go-to rosemary meal. 

Lemon Rosemary Salmon and Veggies

Salmon filet
Lawry's Lemon Marinade
Lemon sea salt flakes
Rosemary, chopped

Combine all ingredients over top of salmon filet (in a little foil boat) and cook at 350 for 20-30 minutes. Way more awesome if you let it marinate for a few hours in advance. Optional: lemon pepper. Or if you're not super gourmet like me and you don't have lemon sea salt flakes on hand, try the lemon pepper and regular sea salt instead. PS: I'm not super gourmet; I don't even know how I ended up with lemon sea salt flakes in my cupboard. Seriously. Do those expire?

For this meal, I just happened to cut up some potato and green beans, spread them out on a pan with garlic oil, salt, pepper and a little butter. Topped with more chopped rosemary and let those suckers bake with the salmon. Open a package salad, dress it up with almonds, avocado and carrot shavings -- you have yourself a winner winner salmon dinner!

Not even Instagram could fix this ghetto photo to make it look more appetizing. Dammit. I swear it's good.
Behold...the child went in for salad. I almost fainted.

  1. This is a good teaser for your fancy rosemary recipe to come, you’ve piqued my curiosity! I love salmon and dig any recipe that’s easy enough to whip out on a week night. And what are you talking about? Your picture looks delicious – the salmon is beautiful! Go J, Go. Does this qualify as a kid approved post?

  2. Delicious and brilliant! I am hungry for salmon now and this seems so easy. I agree with Emily, your picture does look very appetizing. :)

  3. Your posts crack me up! "Not even instagram could fix this ghetto photo!" Hilarious, the picture looks good! I am so happy to be back in the NW so I can eat salmon all of the time!
