Baked Salmon

Serves: 4

-4 salmon filets, skin removed (about 2 lbs total)
-2 cups halved brussel sprouts
-2 cups sliced zucchini
-2 tablespoons bunched rosemary leaves, chopped
-2 tablespoons parsley (dried, chopped)
-1 tablespoon minced garlic
-1 teaspoon hot pepper flakes
-2 lemons
-1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
-sea salt, to taste
1. Preheat oven to 400°F (204°C). Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil or a silicone baking mat. Arrange salmon and brussels sprouts and zucchini on top.
2. In a small bowl, mix the rosemary, parsley, garlic, juice of 1 lemon, hot pepper flakes and ¼ teaspoon pepper together with a spoon. Spoon evenly onto each filet, spreading all over the top.
3. Slice 1/2 of the 2nd lemon and arrange 1-2 slices on top of each filet. 4. Squeeze the other lemon half on top of the brussels sprouts and zucchini. Sprinkle the brussels sprouts and zucchini with remaining 1/4 teaspoon of pepper. Sprinkle sea salt evenly over the whole pan-- not much is needed. Go by taste.
5. Bake for 15 minutes or until the salmon is just cooked through. Don't overcook otherwise the salmon will taste dry.
6. Serve with additional lemon slices if desired.
