Cilantro Lime Salmon and Fresh Tomato Corn Salad

This meal is a staple in our home all year, but especially in the spring and summer. I am obsessed with cilantro and often find myself including cilantro and lime into as many meals as possible. Adding cilantro and lime to salmon (or any seafood) is a the perfect combo We started making this cilantro lime salmon a few years ago while living in Orange County. This was the perfect dinner to bring wrapped in tinfoil and cook over an open fire at the beach. Paired with a fresh tomato and corn salad…heaven! We’ve adapted this meal a bit over the years and found it’s just as great on the grill and in your oven. ps..my TOP is LINKED HERE 

HOW TO MAKE CILANTRO LIME SALMONLisa Allen of Salty Lashes wearing Madewell making oven baked Cilantro Lime Salmon and Fresh Tomato Corn Salad INGREDIENTS

SALMON – I buy a filet at Costco, because we have a big family. You can find smaller portions at Trader Joe’s and your grocery store. I recommend getting a fresh filet and not frozen.

OLIVE OIL- light drizzle across the filet

SALT, PEPPER & ONION SALT– just a pinch of each. Truthfully, I sometimes forget these and it doesn’t make much of a difference.

GARLIC – if you saw this TOMATILLO SALSA video, you know I LOVE garlic. I buy pre-minced. Eyeball it. I probably used two tablespoons for the whole filet.

SRIRACHA – A little heat adds a great element to this dish. Drizzle this generously over the fish.

HONEY – the sweet breaks up the heat a bit. I only add a little drizzle of this.

LIMES – I used about 1-2 limes. I squeeze the juice over the salmon and then slice the lime and lay across the filet. In this post, I used one.

CILANTRO – One whole bunch. Chop the bunch and sprinkle half over the fish. Save the other half to garnish after.

DIRECTIONS

Pre- heat oven to 400 degrees. Rinse your salmon filet in water and pat dry. Line your cookie sheet with tinfoil and lightly spray foil with a non-stick spray. Place the salmon on foil and top with ingredients in the same order as listed above. Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes or until salmon flakes. I don’t recommend cooking longer than 15-20 mins or you will have dry salmon. After 15 mins I turn the oven onto broil and let the top brown just a bit for 3 minutes. Top with some freshly chopped cilantro. That’s it! So simple.

FRESH TOMATO CORN SALAD

INGREDIENTS

FRESH CORN – I use 4 ears of fresh raw corn. Do not cook. Cut off the ear, raw.

TOMATOES- I prefer a cherry or bite size heirloom tomatoes for variety of color. Slice in half. I use a whole carton.

FETA CHEESE – I prefer fat free already crumbled feta. I use about 1/3 of cup, but use more if you’d like.

OLIVE OIL – about 2 tsp total

LIMES– 2-3 limes juiced

CILANTRO – 1 bunch chopped

SALT & PEPPER – to taste

OPTIONAL – Sometimes I add avocado and/or cucumber. Also red onion.
