Baked Salmon with Rosemary and Pecans

This was delicious. And it smelled so good while it was cooking! Super easy too. And yes, I love anything that lets me use the herbs I grew myself.
I got the recipe from the Paleo Plan Recipe Site. As I’ve mentioned, hubby is on the pale diet and I’ve been trying to find stuff that we’ll both like to eat, that I can cook for him. I love salmon, so I try to cook it once a week to every other week. Really good stuff.
The recipe was super simple, and I had most of the ingredients on hand. Except for one. The recipe called for coconut oil (had never heard of that, but man does it smell good.) I found it at Trader Joe’s.
Here’s the recipe. I kind of didn’t go by the measurements. I just put it what I felt was enough:
- Salmon Filets (Skin On) (Also available at Trader Joe’s. I snagged the frozen ones. They’re just fine and not to expensive!)
- Coconut Oil
- Salt (Optional)
Basically, grease a baking sheet with coconut oil (I put foil down first) and place the salmon filets, skin side down, on the sheet. Cover the top with chopped rosemary (fresh if you have it, so easy to grow!) and chopped pecans, and bake at 350 for about 12-15 minutes or more depending on how many filets.
I served it with a kale salad (recipe courtesy of EmmyCooks.com!) for me, and sautéed asparagus (hubby’s fav.)
