Background and History:

Lemon Rosemary Salmon is a delightful dish that combines the fresh flavors of citrus and herbs with succulent salmon.

  • 4 salmon fillets (6-8 oz each)
  • 2 lemons
  • 4-5 sprigs of fresh rosemary
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Serves: 4

Time: 10 minutes (prep), 15-20 minutes (cooking)

Cooking Time: 15-20 minutes


  • Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  • Start by preparing the marinade. Zest one lemon and squeeze the juice into a bowl. Add two tablespoons of olive oil, minced garlic, and chopped rosemary leaves. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Mix well.
  • Place the salmon fillets on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Brush each fillet with the lemon rosemary marinade, ensuring they are evenly coated.
  • Thinly slice the remaining lemon, and place a few lemon slices on top of each salmon fillet for an extra burst of flavor.
  • Bake the salmon in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, or until the salmon easily flakes with a fork and has a light, golden crust.
