Salmon with Roasted Garlic and Rosemary

SalmonwithGarlicandRosemary285This easy, flavorful salmon recipe can be cooked in the oven or on the grill.

Ingredients

2 bulbs garlic, unpeeled

3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

4 sprigs rosemary or 1 teaspoon dried rosemary

¼ cup extra virgin olive oil

2 (8-10 ounce) wild salmon fillets

 

 

Directions 

Preheat oven to 350˚. Wrap the garlic bulbs loosely in aluminum foil and place directly on oven rack. Roast garlic for 45 minutes, or until the individual cloves are very tender. Test with a knife for doneness. Remove from the oven and let cool. Peel the garlic, discarding the outer skin. In a food processor combine the garlic, lemon juice, rosemary, and oil. Puree until smooth. Spread puree on top of salmon. Lightly oil a baking dish with extra virgin olive oil. Place in the baking dish and bake until fish is flaky. This is also great cooked on the grill.
