Food and I have an interesting relationship. I love to cook and bake, but I don’t like to eat. I like trying new recipes, but I don’t like to eat. I’m one of those eat-to-live people. But I also get bored with food very easily and quickly. So, I love finding new foods on Pintrest, though I rarely follow a recipe. Instead, I’ll use what I find as inspiration and end up creating something completely different than the original instructions. Unfortunately, as I was lamenting to my husband recently, the recipes I find on Pintrest are few and far between because so many call for processed foods that we don’t eat.
“It’s so hard to find good, healthy, from-scratch recipes. I can look on Pintrest for 20 minutes and not find a single recipe that I would want to eat.”
My sweet Hubby then recommended that I just publish my own recipes.
And so, without further ado, I give you…
Lemon Rosemary Salmon
1 sprig fresh rosemary
Juice from 1 lemon
3 cloves garlic, sliced
1/4 cup Olive oil
Salt and pepper
3 servings of salmon, 3-6oz each
Mince rosemary and garlic cloves. Combine with olive oil, lemon juice, salt, and pepper. Pour over top of salmon and let rest for 5-10 minutes, flipping salmon once so both sides become seasoned.
Heat some olive oil in a nonstick pan over medium heat. When the pan is hot, add the salmon. Pour the remaining marinade on top of the salmon. Cook approximately 5 minutes, then flip and cook another 3 minutes. Occasionally spoon some of the juices/marinade on top of the salmon.
Serve over pearled barley and steamed broccoli for a complete “clean eating” meal.
