Kat’s Salmon Bake


2 servings


  • 2

    salmon fillets (6 oz. each)

  • 4

    sprigs fresh rosemary

  • 1


  • 4

    tsp. olive oil

  • 4

    cloves garlic, minced

  • 1

    head kale, stems removed and leaves chopped

  • pinch salt

  • 1

    cup cooked quinoa (optional)


STEP 1: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
STEP 2: Create a tin foil "boat" big enough to hold both pieces of salmon. Add the salmon, fresh rosemary, lemon juice, and 2 tsp. olive oil. Pinch the top of the foil together so the salmon is sealed inside. Bake for 25 minutes.
STEP 3: While the salmon is cooking, put a large pan over medium-low heat and add the remaining 2 tsp. olive oil. Add garlic, chopped kale, and pinch of salt. Lightly sauté for 3-5 minutes, then remove from heat.
STEP 4: Place wilted kale on a plate and top with cooked salmon. Feel free to also pair with 1/2 cup cooked quinoa per serving!


I like to keep it simple on Valentine's Day so that I'm not stressed about cooking. Brian and I love to make this super fresh salmon bake with lemons and fresh rosemary. And ya know how much I love kale! I'll be pairing our salmon with some lightly cooked kale with garlic and olive oil! So much yum.

  1. I love this recipe! Delicious. Sometimes I add a few drops of balsamic vinegar to kale right before removing from heat.
