Seems a little fishy to me...

We tried a new recipe tonight and it's yummy, so I have to share it with you. 

I'll preface with this: my kids think that they do not like seafood. The reason I say they "think" they don't, is they really haven't tried much. They're first real introduction to seafood included some overcooked shrimp (which wasn't good and very chewey), and so they've just decided they don't like any kind of seafood. So, my evil plan was to cook this new dish and just call it "meat" and when it was met with approval, reveal its true identity. My plan didn't work too well, as the secret got out prior to the "fish" being served.  Oh well, they had to have their token 3 bites and ended up eating more than just those 3!

Lemon Rosemary Salmon
2 lemons, thinly sliced
8 sprigs fresh rosemary
4 salmon fillets, bones & skin removed
course salt to taste
2 tablespoons olive oil, or as needed

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Arrange half the lemon slices in a single layer in a baking dish. Layer with 2 sprigs rosemary and top with salmon fillets. Sprinkle salmon with salt, layer with remaining rosemary sprigs and top with remaining lemon slices. Drizzle with olive oil.  Bake 20 minutes in the preheated oven or until fish is easily flaked with a fork.

Of course, the best part of the meal was taking the lemon rinds and making teeth out of them. 
I'll give you 3 guesses who came up with this trick...
