Cilantro Salmon

The name says it all, so if you like the clean taste of cilantro and the richness of salmon, you’re in the right place. For me, this was just another excuse to use Indian flavours and just as importantly, a fast way to cook dinner outdoors on a hot day. Of course, you could use nearly any type of Ocean Wise fish as long as you adjust the cooking time accordingly based on the thickness of the cut.

Time: 20 minutes

Serves: 4


½ cup finely chopped cilantro
3 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
2 teaspoons ground coriander
2 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon ground turmeric
1 teaspoon kosher salt
½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
4 salmon steaks
4 lemon wedges


Preheat your barbecue grill on high.

In a small bowl, mix the cilantro, olive oil, coriander, cumin, turmeric, salt and pepper flakes.

Using half of the cilantro mixture, coat one side of the salmon steaks.

Place the steaks on the grill coated side down and spread the balance of the cilantro mixture on the bare side. Grill for three minutes with the lid closed, turn the steaks over and grill for three more minutes.

Remove the salmon from the grill and tent with foil. Let it rest for three minutes before plating each piece with a lemon wedge.
