Low Cal Wednesday

Grab the check book. Oh sorry I don't mean to depress any Americans but today is the dreaded Tax day. I am sure we will be making a run to the post office today. Maybe next year we will get a break, I doubt it. Taxes are like tithing at the church show me where the money goes and I will be ok.
Here is a relief dinner for a stressful day. The salmon is so tender and juicy with a lot of flavor added by the rosemary and the lemon. This was quick and easy to make about 10 minutes. 362 calories.
Rosemary Roasted Salmon with Zucchini

4 salmon steaks
1 lb. thinly sliced zucchini
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
3 lemons, thinly sliced
1/4 cup chopped fresh rosemary leaves
Rosemary sprigs

Preheat oven to 400F. Place salmon and zucchini on a large baking pan coated with nonstick cooking spray. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Top with lemon slices and chopped rosemary.
Roast salmon and zucchini 10 to 12 minutes or until fish flakes with a fork and zucchini is tender. Garnish with fresh rosemary sprigs.

That looks really good I will try it. The Dr. wants me to lower my cholesterol by eating a piece of salmon each week and this will work just fine. Also the added fresh rosemary looks divine.
