A note about salmon and Artic char….

We go through phases where we eat fish regularly and we are in one of those phases!

Salmon is one of our go to fishes to make because we all enjoy it, it’s a mild tasting fish — not fishy tasting or smelling, and the texture is fabulous with a nice gently flake to it.

But truth be told, I am not a fish expert at all! I know what we like and I have a great local fish market whom I trust to give me guidance. I usually tell them what we are thinking of making or what type of fish we want to make and they recommend what’s fresh.

The fish we made here is actually Artic Char because on the day I went to purchase it, the fish store recommended it!

Artic Char is very similar to salmon (I believe it’s even in the salmon family but again, I’m not an expert here!) and has a nice rich flavor but is even less fishy than salmon, is still rich in omega 3 fatty acids and has that fabulous pink color.

So the lesson here is don’t be afraid to ask your local fish market or fish department for advice…  you learn a lot and usually end up with the freshest fish.

And salmon or artic char is extraordinarily versatile!

You can bake it, grill it or pan sear it. and the seasoning possibilities are endless!

So let’s make the Rosemary Garlic Butter Salmon.

All you need is:

salmon or artic char

butter or dairy free butter

fresh rosemary

fresh garlic

salt and pepper

olive oil (not shown)

And it couldn’t be quicker or easier to prepare!

First heat the butter until melted, and saute the garlic for about a minute or until nice and fragrant.

While the butter heats, lightly coat the salmon in olive oil and place a baking sheet.

Top with the garlic butter gently pressing down the salmon in spots to let the garlic butter seep in.

Top with chopped rosemary and bake!

That’s it!

After just 15 minutes, you’ll have perfectly tender flavorful salmon!

You could also do something like a simple sauteed broccoli rabe which has a slight bitter flavor that contrasts nicely to the rest of the meal and that we love!

Ingredients

Rosemary Garlic Butter Salmon

  • 2 6oz pieces of salmon or Artic char approximately (we've used 5oz up to 7oz)
  • 1 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons butter or dairy free butter
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh rosemary
  • salt to taste
  • pepper to taste

Rosemary Roasted Potatoes

  • 2 lbs baby or creamer potatoes, halved or quartered to get 1 -1½ pieces
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ¼-½ teaspoon kosher salt according to tastes
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh rosemary
  • 2 tablespoons butter or dairy-free butter optional
  • 3 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese optional (we've made these without parmesan, with 2 tablespoons and up to 4 tablespoons or 1/4 cup parmesan)

Easy Roasted Parmesan Asparagus

  • 1 bunch asparagus Any size will work, but we prefer the thinner asparagus.
  • 1 tablespoons olive oil enough to coat but not have asparagus dripping in oil
  • 1 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese or to taste

Instructions

Rosemary Garlic Butter Salmon

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • Lightly coat both sides of salmon in olive oil and place on prepared baking sheet. Set aside.
  • In a small sauce pan, over low heat, melt butter. Add minced garlic and let simmer for about 1 minute or until fragrant.
  • Using a spoon, top each piece of salmon evenly with the garlic butter, gently pressing into part of the salmon so that they garlic butter will seep in a bit.
  • Sprinkle with rosemary. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Bake on the middle rack for 15 minutes or until salmon is tender -- it will be flaky with using a fork to slice.
  • Serve and enjoy!

Rosemary Roasted Potatoes

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F and line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper, set aside.
  • In a large bowl, toss cut potatoes with olive oil. Then add salt, rosemary and parmesan if using and toss to coat evenly.
  • Place coated potatoes in a single layer on prepared baking sheets so that they are not touching. The space between the potatoes will allow them to get crispy. Sprinkle with butter pieces if using to get extra crisp edges.
  • Bake on top rack for 30 minutes or until the edges are golden and crisp.
  • Serve and enjoy!

Easy Roasted Parmesan Asparagus

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper, or very lightly oil a shallow baking pan. Set aside.
  • Prepare your asparagus by rinsing, patting dry and trimming off the ends (I usually trim off about 1 inch)
  • Place asparagus on prepared sheet or pan. Drizzle with oil and use your hands to make sure asparagus are coated but not dripping in oil.
  • Sprinkle with parmesan cheese.
  • Bake for 25- 40 minutes, or until crispy on tips and edges and asparagus tender. Time will vary based on how thin or thick the asparagus are. Thinner ones will be done in about 25 minutes, thicker ones, 40 minutes.
