Herb Crusted Salmon

Hi Everyone!! How you all doing? Lately, I have been inspired by the food I ate in California. Lots of fresh ingredients used to make scrumptious food. I also want to make eating dinner with my husband more of an experience rather than lets eat and get on with the day. So, for dinner the other day I made a meal centered around salmon. We absolutely love salmon and its important to incorporate any fish into your diet; they are high in omega fatty acids which is good for the heart. Usually, I like to marinate my salmon with Asian flavors but this time I did something different. I created an herb crust and glazed the fish with some mayo as well. The mayonnaise is often used in Filipino cuisine to keep the fish moist and maintain flavor. This was overall delicious especially paired with avocado salad and some garlic lemon asparagus!

Servings: 2-3 people

Total Time: about 1 hour

Ingredients

1 1/2 lb of Fresh salmon fillet

1 cup Fresh parsley

1/2 cup fresh cilantro

1/2 tsp cumin

1/2 a fresh lemon’s juice

2 tbsp olive oil

Salt & pepper to taste

1/2 tbsp mayonnaise

Instructions

  • Rub the mayonnaise onto the salmon.
  • In a processor, blend the parsley, cilantro, cumin, lemon, olive oil and salt/pepper. Add and spread that on top of the salmon already rubbed with mayo.
  • Place in a sprayed baking pan and let it sit in the fridge covered in aluminum foil for about an hour.
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Bake the salmon covered with foil for 15-20 minutes. Bake uncovered for another 5-7 minutes. Salmon is cooked when it easily flakes with a fork.
  • Cut into 2 large pieces and squeeze some lemon over the top. Enjoy! This is perfect with side of garlic asparagus and salad.
