A lovely way to prepare salmon, courtesy of my hubby…

Serves 2.

2 wild salmon fillets, 4-6 oz. each

2 tablespoons olive oil, plus more to brush onto fish

Salt and pepper to taste

3-6 sprigs fresh rosemary

3-6 cloves garlic, halved

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

Wash and pat dry the salmon fillets. Remove the skin. Brush salmon with olive oil, and salt and pepper it to taste.

Heat the 2 tablespoons of olive oil in an oven-safe skillet (preferably cast-iron or other nonstick surface) over medium high heat. Just before the oil reaches its smoking point, add the rosemary and halved cloves of garlic to the pan. Lay salmon filets into the pan on top of the garlic and rosemary.

Let the salmon cook in the pan for 1 minute, then put the pan in the preheated oven. Bake for 5 minutes for medium rare, 7 minutes for medium, 10 minutes for well done.

Remove from oven and allow the pan to stand for a few minutes.

Serve with a green vegetable of your choice–try sautéing some fresh kale, spinach, or Swiss chard in olive oil with minced or pressed garlic until the leaves are tender. Just wash your greens first and, for kale/chard, rip the leaves off the tough stems before cooking.

I bake salmon often with dry spices, such as Old Bay. This sounds like an interesting change. Definitely will try with fresh rosemary sometime soon! Thanks!
