Foody Friday - Cilantro Lime Salmon

Jenny at A Latte Talk is once again hosting Foody Friday. She is cooking up something spicy this week, and according to the definition she posted, a spice is anything of a pungent, aromatic substance of vegetable origin.

So this dish isn't particularly spicy, as in hot spicy, but it has lots of garlic. And onion. And...mmmm...cilantro.

This is my favorite way to prepare salmon, and you can have the entire dish ready to eat in about 30 minutes. The ingredients are easily adjusted to suit your taste...I always like to add extra lime.

Cilantro Lime Salmon

1/2 c. onion, chopped

2 cloves garlic, chopped

1 cup honey

juice from one lime

1 bunch cilantro leaves, chopped

4 Salmon steaks

salt and pepper to taste

Saute onions and garlic in a splash of olive oil. Add honey and lime juice; heat until honey is easily stirred. Add cilantro leaves and cook for a few minutes until wilted. Remove from heat; let cool slightly.

Place salmon steaks in a baking dish; season with salt and pepper. Pour marinade over salmon, cover, and refrigerate 10 min. (You can also reserve a bit of the marinade to serve with the salmon).

Cover dish with foil and bake at 375 for about 15 minutes, or until fish is easily flaked with a fork. Serve with reserved marinade, if desired.
