Broiled Salmon with Rosemary Potatoes

This is usually our Monday night supper since I shop on Mondays and fish has to be eaten quickly! Sometimes we do brown rice instead of potatoes if we're trying to be less starchy.

-Salmon steaks
***1 steak is enough for two of us usually, so we get 2 for the whole family. HEB sells them pre-packaged and that saves money! It's good to avoid farm raised fish because of mercury content and instead buy wild alaskan sock-eye or the fresh atlantic variety.
- Lemons
-New potatoes, or russet, about 8
-Fresh rosemary (or use spice jar variety), sea salt to taste, olive oil to taste

Quarter the potatoes and boil them until soft. Then roast them along with the salmon with a little bit of sea salt and rosemary, maybe a dash of olive oil. After rinsing off the salmon I marinade it in some lemon juice and sprinkle with a little sea salt. You can also top it with fresh parsley or rosemary if you have extra on hand. I put it in the broiler (with or without the potatoes) for about 10 mins.
