Lemon Garlic Salmon

Healthy and loaded with flavor! Just what this lazy Sunday needs.

Sunday dinners are always boring. I usually throw a frozen pizza in the oven or something simple like that. But I’m shaking things up today!

Baked salmon is probably one of my favorite things to eat with a little bit of rice, a nice garden salad and some wine.

This recipe is really easy to make and fast, you can pair salmon with just about anything (rice, potatoes, salad, you name it)!
