This is delicious and simple and fast. You wouldn't want to let the salmon and lime rest for more than the 10 minutes, because the acid would start eating into the fish. I used a salmon fillet instead of steaks, so I only basted the marinade on the top part. I reserved a little to use as part of a garnish. This was great with an avocado salad , some butter sauteed potatoes and a hot baguette.

The flavor is so good and the lime and cilantro is the perfect combination of flavors. The directions were GREAT, as the marinade does seem to burn if you put it all on at once when broiling. We make this in the oven and can't wait to try it out on the grill once summer hits! Thank you for a keeper recipe!

I have a recipe very similar to this that I got in a diabetic cookbook (it adds 1/4 c low sodium chicken broth , 1 chopped fresh jalepeno, and sliced green onions to the cilantro pesto) and it is my all time favorite meal!

This was so yummy! I don't cook salmon that often, so I needed and recipe first. This was fast and so easy! I served it with rice pilaf and green beans.

Good, easy recipe. However, as a cook I would NEVER use non-stick spray OR Crisco or the like. Butter, margarine or (best) olive oil are the basics for cooking a good meal.

What a DELICIOUS salmon recipe! The combination of flavors in this was incredible! The only thing I did differently was I broiled for 10 mins, then flipped and baked till done at 425 degrees. This made the top of the salmon with the cilantro mix taste very infused! It also allowed me NOT to burn it as I'm not too handy with a broiler and a timer! Thanks for a unique recipe with salmon!

Loved this!! I too added just a touch more salt. and combined lemon/lime juice and zest. Had it cold over baby greens and tossed reserved marinade with salad greens. This one's gonna be a repeat. Thanks so much.

Wonderful! My mom always discouraged me from cooking fish with garlic (thinking the flavors were both too strong to be put together). Sorry mom, but I have to say it works! I bought sockeye fillets instead of steaks and baked them at 425 for about 14 minutes instead of broiling. Served with brown rice and sauteed squash with red pepper. I'll be making this on a regular basis!

i used a touch more salt, basted both sides before putting in the oven, and poured white wine into the pan to retain the moisture while cooking but it really did turn out great!
