Cumin Coriander Crusted Salmon

“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!!!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine cilantro shallots, oil, cumin, coriander, salt and pepper in a small bowl, stirring to form a paste. (can be made ahead of time).
  2. Place fish, skin side down, in a shallow baking dish. Coat with cilantro mixture. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  3. Preheat oven to 400.
  4. Arrange fish on the rack of a roasting pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 400 for 10 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork or until desired degree of doneness.
  5. Serve with lemon wedges.
  6. Note: The recipe called for 2 tsp oil, but with the fish being as oily as it is, you can get away with 1 teaspoons.
