Zesty Cilantro Salmon
- Yield: 8 Servings 1x
Eight 4–6 oz. skinless wild caught salmon fillets
3 Tbsp. coconut oil
½ tsp. paprika
1 tsp. pepper
½ tsp. ground cumin
3 garlic cloves, coarsely chopped
1 Tbsp. lemon zest
¼ cup fresh lemon juice
½ cup fresh cilantro
Rinse Salmon and pat dry with a paper towel. Rub with salt and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
In a blender or food processor, combine the coconut oil, paprika, pepper, cumin, garlic, lemon zest & juice and blend until smooth.
Brush about half of the mixture over the fillets.
Pre-heat the broiler. Place the fillets in the oven and broil for about 5 minutes. Brush on remaining mixture and broil until just opaque throughout (about 8-10 minutes total time).
