Salmon with a Spicy Cilantro Sauce and a Winner!

I Made this quick and easy salmon recipe the day Jasmines swing was being built and then later one of the guys who built it asked for the recipe as the smell made him hungry!
I first made this recipe a year ago after seeing it on My Colombian Recipes its so easy and really makes salmon out of this World.


  • Wild Alaskan Salmon Steaks
  • One bunch of fresh cilantro
  • Olive Oil
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • Masala powder to taste about a teaspoon

  1. Grind the cilantro, oil, garlic and masala powder together cover the salmon and marinate for a couple of hours
  2. Then pan saute the salmon and serve over cous cous (with added mixed vegetables) its that easy
my little taste tester!

  1. Rebecca that looks so delicious. I have only used the small cous cous before and haven't tried the larger one. I will have to give it a go.

    Enjoy the week and take care.

    Best wishes,

  2. Sounds delicious and your kid is so cute...

  3. A gorgeous coloured meal ! green and orange is a wonderful combo... colourwise n taste wise...I can see your precious one thinks so too :))

  4. Tasty salmons coloured with the early summer hue :) Thanks for the recipe and lovely family scene!

  5. Sounds delicious. When you say grind curious if you mean in a blender....And, does your "taster" really eat Salmon with cilantro, if so well done.

  6. Rebecca

    I love Erica's recipes too and this salmon is no exception; so simple to make and yet full of flavor! Plus I am partial to cilantro!

  7. This is obviously an omen. I was oogling a recipe yesterday of some white fish with a similar cilantro topping. I love cilantro and this definately means it will be on the menu this week.

  8. Aww, love the little taste tester! And that's a healthy, delicious meal I can really get behind.

  9. I love salmon and this sounds like a delicious way to prepare it!

    This is my very first giveaway win! Thank you so much and I'll be sending you an email shortly.

  10. I know it's been wonderful having your mom there, Rebecca. (BTW: I loved the yorkshire pudding in your previous post...I make it a lot.)
    I have a piece of salmon ready for dinner tonight and I was mulling over what I would do with it. No longer! This looks great! I am not a cilantro fan, so will substitute parsley. Forgive me!

    Congrats to Susan!

  11. Your dining area looks almost identical to mine! Sounds like you had a wonderful time with your parents and also enjoyed some tasty food while they were in town. The salmon looks terrific. Hope you had a fantastic mother's day.

  12. WOW! This is a nice meal. Love the color, very creative.

  13. Mmm...I love salmon. Your salmon dish looks very delicious. It's always so wonderful to have mom and dad around but always so sad when they have to leave. I'm sure you had a great time with your parents.

  14. Boy do I love the sound of that cilantro sauce! Perfect with the salmon. And I LOVE your family dinners - so cute!

    Congrats to Susan!

  15. Salmon sounds terrific with spicy cilantro sauce!

  16. Rebecca, the salmon steak looks so tempting! Jasmine has fun with it too!

  17. Yumm-that definitely looks good!! Next time try adding some mint leaves,ginger+garlic and green chillies to the cilantro-gives a nice flavor!!
    BTW-the Parsi dish Patrani Macchi has a couple of extra spices and they steam it in banana leaves :)

  18. That is a gorgeous looking piece of fish.
