    Abby Girl's Note:

    When I saw this recipe in the March issue of Cooking Light I knew that this would be a hit....I was just suprised on how much! My DH and DD are not keen on cilantro, but they were really impressed with this recipe. It is fast, easy and I would definately serve this to company. I served this with garlic scented brown jasmin rice and roasted beets. Devine!!!

      This was wonderful! We mixed the spices just as directed, but used it all on 2 5oz salmon fillets. We also didn't have time to marinate, so we mixed it up, topped the salmon and baked. The flavor was excellent! I'm sure marinating would make this recipe even better, but it's nice to know that we can still make this even if we're short on time. Thanks Abby Girl - we'll make this one often!!

      This was very tasty. Having read the previous review, I made the whole recipe, even though I had only 12 oz of salmon. I think that was a good amount of topping, just enough to form a "crust," in my opinion. YMMV :)

      I put the whole amount of spices on one little 6-ounce fillet. It was delicious! I'm eating it right now for my lunch as I type this. I did cut the salt in half though. The whole recipe on one little piece is not over powering, either. If you have 24 ounces of salmon, I would at least triple this recipe. The little spritz of lemon at the end tantalizes your taste buds with this herb mixture. Thanks for another way to enjoy one of my favorite kinds of fish.
