So easy. I don't even follow the exact instructions anymore. Just throw some olive oil, lemon juice, and rosemary in a bag and done.
Broiled Salmon with Lemon and Olive Oil
This dish is a highly nutritious choice that has a wonderful citrus flavor from the lemon. Monounsaturated fat from olive oil, Omega-3 fatty acids from salmon, and fiber from brown rice make for a heart-healthy recipe.
