Baked Salmon with Cilantro and Lime

7 May

Salmon was on sale at Publix so I picked up a filet at the end of last week. I’ve cooked salmon once before and it was rather easy, quick and quite good.

Like most things I cook, I start with a google search. I had some limes (also on sale at Publix) and thought they might pair well with salmon since lemon does. Here’s the recipe I found using what few ingredients are in my kitchen. And of course, I had to sway a little from it since I only had one large filet and didn’t feel like cracking open garlic.

  • 1/4 cup of cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • juice of half a lime (and make a couple of slim slices)
  • sea salt to taste
  • 1 rather large salmon filet

Preheat oven to 425.

Lightly grease glass baking pan with some of the olive oil. Place salmon inside.

Combine cilantro, olive oil, lime juice and salt. Pour over salmon filet.

Bake for 10 minutes. Place lime slices on top of filet. Bake another 2 to 5 minutes.

Makes enough for two, but of course I ate the whole thing with a side of leftover chickpea salad.
