Citrus Salmon

15 Feb

Salmon is one my favourite fishies so I’m always looking for new ways to make it. I think I’ve pretty much mastered the coconut salmon and J makes a fantastic black pepper- and coriander-coated salmon dish. I wanted something simple, flavourful and easy to make so I decided to give this one a whirl!

Serves 2.

Ingredients

2 salmon fillets, boneless & skinless
1 lemon
1 orange
2 tb cilantro, chopped
salt & pepper
2 tb olive oil

Directions

1.  In a shallow dish, zest the orange and the lemon. Squeeze out all the juice, as well. Toss in the cilantro, reserving a little for garnish, and stir.
2. Place the fillets in the marinade and coat the fish. Marinate for 30 minutes.
3. Preheat the oven to 400F.
4. When the 30 minutes are up, heat the olive oil in a skillet to medium high. Shake off the excess marinade and place the filets in the pan. Cook 2 minutes and then flip. Season with salt & pepper as you cook.
5. Place the pan with the fish into the oven and cook for 8-10 minutes. (I lean toward cooking it for less time rather than more.)
6.  Remove the fish from the oven and plate. Garnish with leftover cilantro and finish with a squeeze of lemon juice.
