Easy Roasted Salmon with Citrus Recipe

Honestly, this recipe is just super easy and super delicious.

I’m a big fan of braising, and while this isn’t technically a braise, one can say it’s inspired by braising with the higher content of liquid than just relying on pure convection/dry heat roast. The citrus and rosemary kind of infuses the olive oil with herbiness, so you get hints of it in the final product.

Drizzle a bit of that lovely orange-rosemary oil on top of the roasted salmon when you serve it.
