Salmon with Cilantro

My husband has never been a fan of salmon until we had it one Friday night at our friends, Mira & Levi. I have to admit, at first I was jealous that she was able to get him to eat two servings of something that he would never finish at home. But then I gave myself a mental slap and realized I would be ridiculous not to ask her how she made it. So, as often happens when leaving the Martinez residence, I went home that night with a fabulous new recipe!

2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon Montreal Steak Seasoning
Chopped cilantro
3 pieces of salmon

Combine the olive oil, lemon juice and steak seasoning and drizzle some over the fish, leaving half of the mixture on the side. Bake the salmon in a 500 degree oven for 20 minutes, uncovered. After you remove the salmon from the oven, place the chopped cilantro in the remaining olive oil and lemon juice mixture and pour over the freshly baked salmon.

  • Hi, I just read the ingredients and cooking time for your Salmon with Cilantro: I am quite surprised that you bake it for 20 minutes at 500 degrees. Salmon does not take a long time to bake. 20 minutes at 500 degrees sounds like a long time does it not get dried out? Salmon should be moist.
    Anxious for your response.
