    Why add the olive oil to Salmon. Salmon has its own delicious and health oils. From what I can see you can enjoy this dinner with zero smartpoints!

      My thoughts too, Bill. What about lemon juice instead?

    Also – where is the 7 points in this? Salmon is 0 and 2TB of olive oil is a total of 8 points – so that divided by 4 servings certainly isn’t 7. I’m confused

      Hi Cheryl, this recipe is only 2 points! Thanks!

    Superb recipe for salmon. I made it last night for my wife and it was so delicious. I used dill instead of rosemary and cooked it in parchment paper with the foil seal on the outside. The ideal cooking time for my oven was 27 minutes on 375 degrees as the piece was fairly thick on one end. Came out perfect – juicy, flavorful, and at the right consistency. The dill, lemon, and garlic are a fantastic combination with salmon
