We were craving Greek potatoes & string beans last night… comforting, quick, easy (click HERE to see recipe). So I thought, keeping it on the Greek theme, why not make some salmon, too? The lemon and rosemary flavors go great with anything Mediterranean. Plus, it’s so easy and delicious. It’s foil-baked so it cooks quickly in its steam and soaks up all the flavors of the lemon, rosemary, garlic, wine, and onion (my aunt taught me that method… love it). Seriously, this whole meal, salmon and potatoes, took me about 10 ingredients and about 40 minutes- prepping and cooking included! Plus, it’s really healthy and light… and not to mention pretty. If you want to impress someone and make it seem like you spent hours in the kitchen making a fancy meal, without actually doing it, make this. Such a hit! And so so so so simple!!
I’ve updated this recipe since making it- check out the new version here!!! Simple Lemon & Rosemary Salmon
2 salmon fillets (these were about 1/2 lb each)
2 sprigs fresh rosemary
2 cloves garlic
1 red onion, enough for a few slices
4 tbsp white wine
2 tbsp olive oil
salt and pepper, to taste
Preheat oven to 425 degrees
Very thinly slice the red onion twice, enough to make a few slices for each fillet
FInely slice the garlic cloves and lemon slices (about 3 lemon slices per fillet)
Lay each fillet on a sheet of foil, large enough to wrap it completely
Salt and pepper each fillet generously
Top with onion slices
And garlic slices
Place lemon slices on top, followed by rosemary sprig
In a small bowl, stir wine and olive oil together
Pour wine/oil blend over and around the fillets
Then wrap tightly and bake for about 15 minutes
Remove from foil and serve!!
I served this with Fasolakia, a Greek potato and string bean dish
that’s so easy and scrumptious
