Servings: 4 Cooking time: 20 minutes
This Cilantro Lime Salmon is a very easy, healthy dish to prepare. Overall it is ready in under one hour! You can serve this dish with a white semi-dry white wine.
4 Filets of Salmon without bones, about 6-8 ounces each
1/4 cup olive oil (you can use butter as well)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup of lime juice
1/2 teaspoon fresh cilantro, finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon basil finely chopped
1 clove of garlic minced
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon sugar
Mix olive oil, fresh cilantro, lime juice, salt, pepper, basil, garlic, dried oregano, and sugar - stir it well and blend. Set aside to set for a few minutes. This mixture is the dressing for the salmon and is in essence what will give the unique flavor.
Preheat oven at 400. While oven heats up, rub the salmon's filets with the dressing mix. Rub both sides well.
Place in a greased baking dish. Bake uncovered for 20-25 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Remember salmon cooks fast. Do not overcook it. About halfway thru the baking, pour remaining lime dressing. Finish cooking it.
Serve this delicious, easy to prepare recipe with Basmati white rice or Couscous and add a vegetable as an additional side dish. We did ours with the rice and Brussels Sprouts. Likewise, roasted vegetables are an extra side dish which adds more healthy benefits.
