Cilantro Salmon

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by SabrinaFree

This is a concoction for salmon that I came up with when I wanted salmon, but something different. The outcome turned out great, even a friend that hates salmon described it as "the bomb". . . he's such a dork. Anyway, the combination of flavors is fresh and bright, delicious served with rice and steamed veggies.

Excellent dish! Light and flavorful, a great change from boring old salmon. Kids even liked it!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Line a baking dish with aluminum foil, place salmon in foil. Either drizzle olive oil over salmon or divide butter evenly and spread over salmon steaks. Sprinkle with lemon pepper seasoning. Cover with sliced onions, sprinkle salt and pepper. Close foil over salmon, create a pouch. Bake in oven for about 15 to 20 minutes. You will be able to smell it nicely.
  3. Remove from oven, open foil pouch and pour in salsa or hot sauce, (I use my own homemade) Sprinkle with fresh cilantro. Close foil pouch back up and put back in oven for about 10 more minutes.
