Cilantro and Lime Salmon

Cilantro Lime SalmonThis is a delightfully simple and flavorful recipe. It’s so easy to whip up the marinade/topping! It’s hard to imagine this is good for you and Whole 30 complaint. I see more fish in my future!

Interestingly, I used dehydrated cilantro instead of fresh. Probably the reason for the darker green color, instead of the vibrant green of fresh leaves. Next time, I’ll certainly go with fresh! I paired the salmon with some roasted asparagus.


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro
  • 1/2 jalapeno (medium)
  • 1 garlic clove
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • salmon fillet (about 1lb per person)


Preheat oven, 400.

In a food processor combine olive oil, lime juice, cilantro, jalapeno and garlic to create a mixture.

Line a baking sheet with foil (I lightly greased my sheet with olive oil so the salmon wouldn’t stick.) Place the salmon on the baking sheet and season with salt and pepper, then top with the cilantro lime mixture.

Bake 10-15 minutes, or until done.
