Fishy business.

The other day I cooked for, like, the third time in my life. And it came out pretty well, so I thought I'd share the delicious and simple recipe, one I found on

Lemon Rosemary Salmon

Heat oven to 400 degrees.
Cut a lemon into thin slices. If it's not a very big lemon, or you're (like me) not a very good slicer, you might need two lemons (as I found out).
Place one layer of lemon slices in the baking pan.
Place two sprigs of fresh rosemary atop the lemon.
Place two salmon fillets atop the lemon/rosemary.
Sprinkle salt to taste on the salmon.
Place another layer of lemon slices and rosemary on the salted salmon.
Drizzle olive oil over the salmon and, if you like, squeeze the rest of the lemon (if you have any left, which I pretty much didn't) over the whole thing.
Bake for 20 minutes.

On a side note (maybe I should have called this blog "On a side note." On another side note, I'll send a prize to whoever first correctly identifies where the hastily-thought-up title of this blog came from!), I didn't do the recipe-email-forward thing. I'm sorry, guys. If you forward me a forward, I will probably wimp out. BUT I am getting a lot better about checking my voicemail. Baby steps!

and i feel that i should say, fish are not for farming! eat wild salmon!

(also wild salmon is healthier for you!)
