Broiled Salmon with Rosemary



Juicy salmon with rosemary, lemon and garlic, takes minutes to prepare which is always perfect for busy weeknights.

Salmon is high in protein and has heart-protective benefits associated with omega-3 fatty acids found in their fish oil. It is suggested that we eat fatty fish twice a week, I don't always manage that but I try!


Broiled Salmon with Rosemary
Gina's Weight Watcher Recipes
Servings: 4 servings Size: 5 oz Old Points: 6 pts Points+: 6 pts

Ingredients:
  • 24 oz or 4 pieces of salmon
  • olive oil spray
  • 2 tsp fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tsp fresh, chopped rosemary
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • salt and fresh pepper to taste

Directions:

Combine lemon juice, rosemary, salt, pepper and garlic. Brush mixture onto fish.

Spray the rack of a broiler pan with olive oil spray and arrange the fish on it. Broil 4" from the heat until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork, approx. 4-6 minutes per 1/2" of thickness. If fish is more than 1" thick, gently turn it halfway through broiling.

  3. I made this last night for some friends, along with the bruschetta with tomatoes and basil, and sauteed zucchini julienne...it was AWESOME! I absolutely love your website! So lucky to have found it, especially living in Singapore now - I don't have my old WW resources!

  5. I made this salmon tonight (caught by my husband from a local river earlier in the season). It was fantastic. All 4 of us loved it. I'm always looking for a good recipe for salmon, and joined WW yesterday, so this was a great start! Thanks for sharing it. :)

  8. What temperature do you set the oven to??

    ReplyDelete
  9. It's set to broil rather than adjust the oven temperature which cooks from the flame.

  10. I'm just learning to like salmon, and this recipe is delicious. I have to leave out the lemon because my husband really dislikes it. It was still great!

  11. Very nice. Easy and quick, elegant & tasty! I "finished" the salmon after cooking with just a little added lemon juice to bring out a little more fresh light taste to the dish.

  12. This sounds really good. I was just wondering how you got the points+ 6? I looked in my weight watchers pts+ guide book, and for 5.5oz of wild salmon Filet its 7pts. For salmon steak its more. So I was just curious. Thanks! =)

  13. cooked this tonight - it as so yummy, salmon always is but I did really enjoy the lemon. I was also confused about the points - WW online says half a fillet is 9 points - I cant tell from their site how much "half a fillet" is.....in any case if I am going to go on my points I am happy to do it with a super food like salmon :)

  14. do you know how to convert the points to calories? :)

  15. I have heard a lot about your website in my WW meeting. I will be using the recipes a lot especially since you keep up with the point system. I have also referred you to a few of my friends that love your website also. We are truly bless to have a God sent person like yourself. I will be cooking this tonight. Thank you

  17. I ended up using the entire portion of mixture on one salmon fillet... it was delicious! And I don't suppose it changes the points...? It's only garlic and lemon juice and herbs!

  18. I made this dish last night and wow so delicious. Very moist and flavorful. I decided to back it instead of broiling it at 350 for 15 minutes. Still delightful. Thank you.
