Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Roast pepper by laying it directly on a gas burner or beneath a broiler, turning with tongs as needed, until charred and blackened all over. Place in a bag and let steam until cool to the touch. Under running water, rub off blackened skin. Pat pepper dry with paper towel, then slit open. Scrape out seeds and interior ribs and pull off stem. Cut pepper into thin strips. In a blender, combine pepper strips, lime juice, onions, cilantro, oil and salt; puree.
  3. Place salmon in a baking dish just large enough to fit fillet. Pour cilantro salsa from blender over salmon, turning fish to coat on both sides. Bake, uncovered, until fish is cooked to your liking in center, 20 to 25 minutes depending on thickness of the fish. Fish should be just opaque in the middle. To serve, spoon salsa from pan over top of each serving.
