Aunt Rosemary's Super Easy Salmon

Aunt Rosemary's Super Easy Salmon. three ingredients. recipe. cooking method.
 Every Christmas Eve, my Aunt Rosemary makes a giant piece of salmon as part of the “seven fishes” at my grandparents house.  It comes out perfect every time. So while grocery shopping for dinner with my mother-in-law about a month ago we had to call Aunt Rosemary to find out how she makes her famous salmon.  She laughed when I called & you may too when you find out how easy this non-recipe recipe is. I like to think of it more of a “method” than a recipe.

Essentially you take the piece of salmon, stick it in an oven safe baking dish or in my case - the brownie pan.  I drizzle mine with a a little olive oil but you can leave yours naked for the true “Aunt Rosemary Method”.  Then you broil it (on low) for about 10-15 minutes. I’d check it after 10 minutes so that you don’t over cook it. Serve it with salt, pepper & lemon wedges on the side so that your guests can season as they like & that is it!

Step 2: Broil on low for 10-15 minutes. Check after 10 minutes so you don't over cook. Make a little slit with a knife to check.
