Recipe

This healthy Garlic Lime Cilantro Salmon recipe will quickly become a family favorite and can be prepared in the oven or on the grill.

My go to fish used to be haddock when I lived on the Northeast coast. It was always fresh, readily available, and normally pretty affordable. Since moving to California, I have started eating a lot more salmon. It isn't that I don't like other Pacific fish varieties, but many of them are so expensive and sometimes can be hard to find. Whenever possible, I try and buy wild salmon since it has more flavor and doesn't need as much dressing up. Today's recipe is a perfect example of this - with just a few simple ingredients, you can make this salmon sing. Cilantro, garlic, and lime juice make the perfect crust for the salmon. You could also throw a jalapeno in as well if you like things spicy.

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Pulse the cilantro, olive oil, garlic, lime juice, and lime zest in a food processor until smooth. You could also really finely mince it all together or mash it using a mortar and pestle. If you like things spicy, add in up to 1 jalapeno.
  2. Spread over the salmon and place on a baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray. Bake for 18-20 minutes until flaky. You could also grill it on a piece of foil for 8-10 minutes (for a 1 inch thick piece) or until flaky.
