Rosemary and Garlic Roasted Salmon

Let me preface this by saying- we do not generally love salmon.  I want to love it because it is SO great for you, I want to teach Knox to love fish, and I want our family to eat fish more regularly.  This recipe is just the ticket!  The bold rosemary and garlic flavors are a perfect match for this fish, I enjoyed every single bite.  It also helped we had left over cauliflower puree to eat with it… We used a one pound wild caught sockeye salmon filet, it was perfect for 3 servings.  Nothing is quicker then cooking fish for dinner, so needless to say, this was fast and easy!  I think we will add it in to a more regular rotation.  Enjoy the simple goodness that is here:
