Baked Rosemary Salmon Recipe

Baked Rosemary Salmon Recipe

I had no idea what a world of difference fresh rosemary made until I started growing my own on my balcony. You can check out the photo of my potted plant at the end of my last article, which was on my mum’s organic garden . It’s so convenient to be able to just go pick some herbs and then throw it into a dish I’m making.

Ok, onto the recipe because it’s super simple!

You can use fresh salmon fillets or defrosted frozen ones. In a bowl mix together olive oil, fresh rosemary leaves (make sure to remove the hard stalks), and salt. Then rub the mixture onto the salmon. If you have time, you can marinade the fillets in the mixture for 30 minutes to an hour, but I never seem to have time for this!


  • 2 salmon fillets (fresh or defrosted)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary leaves
  • ¼ cup (4 tablespoons) olive oil
  • 1 tsp salt (optional or to taste)
