Recipes : Lemon & Rosemary Baked Salmon

Please ask me why I have lived in my house since February of 2016 and haven't taken the time to explore the lovely fragrance as I walk on my porch every single day? Low and behold a recent sniff into the bushes did I discover I have a gorgeous rosemary bush right at my doorsteps. As long as it took me to make the discovery, it didn't take it as long to cook an amazing dinner with an herb I simply adore in restaurants. Here's a quick yet satisfying and gratifying recipe to try...LEMON ROSEMARY BAKED SALMON.
