I was craving a delicious and healthy dish lately. I was thinking that I would love to have fish for dinner. So I’ve decided to prepare this easy lemon rosemary salmon. I really like salmon I can eat this fish very often. This dish requires only couple ingredients.
I am just watching my calories lately. I don’t eat full fat dishes right now. No bacon or sausages for me. I noticed that if I eat on schedule and eat healthy food I’m not hungry. Sometimes, I skipped my lunch or breakfast but that was a bad think. I thought if I skip it, I will eat less calories per day. Wrong thinking! When I skipped lunch I was “very” hungry at dinner time.
Ok, but let’s go back to this lemon rosemary salmon. First, I melted the butter, then I added rosemary, salt and pepper. I mixed all ingredients and marinated the salmon. I didn’t bake it. I put in the aluminum foil, I poured the water into the pan and I simmered my buttery salmon. I could honestly say it was so good. I added lots of vegetables. Simmered sliced carrots and frozen green beans.
However, It’s up to you how you would like to prepare it. You can certainly bake this lemon rosemary salmon or even fry it. It has butter already so you do not need any extra oils. How about you? Do you like fish for dinner? What is your favorite fish? Let me know so I will keep in mind what I should make for dinner next time:)

I’m not a fan of salmon, but you sure make this look delicious!
That looks SO good! I will definitely be trying this!
Let me know Aisha if you’ll like it. Thank you:)
Looks delicious! I’m not fond of lemon on food though. But I bet there is something else I could add. Now I want fish!
I wasn’t fun of lemon fish too. But now I like it:) Thank you Robin!
We are trying to eat more fish this year and this looks delish! I will have to try!
Thank you for visiting my blog:) I am glad you stop by.
Looks yummy even though I’m not a big fan of fish.
This looks amazing, with me changing the way I eat I am now a semi-vegetarian (pescatarian) only eating seafood and the rest of the vegetarian diet I welcome any seafood dishes lol
I did not know about pescatarian. Thank for educating me what it means:)

Am I weird that rosemary is one spice I just cannot seem to enjoy? My mom loves it, maybe she overdid it for me when I was growing up, lol. Salmon is a big fave though!
No, you are not weird. Every person has own unique taste. There are some things that I will not eat:) Thanks Megan for visiting!
My mouth… Is watering… So bad right now. I’ve been eating crap since I’m low on money lately and can’t really afford healthy food to cook at home, but this makes me miss a normal home-cooked meal so much ahhhh.
Thanks Zerina for visiting my blog:)
I absolutely LOVE Rosemary but my husband doesn’t! So I don’t get to make it very often. This looks so good!
Thanks Tara Joy!
