Paleo Cuban Salmon

If asked, what we would eat for our final meal, it would probably be our Cuban Salmon.  We usually make this at least once a week and it’s our favourite dish to serve at dinner parties. It’s fool-proof easy and tastes like something you’d get at a 5-star restaurant.  Best part, for the first time ever, we’re sharing this recipe with our friends and YOU. 

What you need for 2 servings:
  • 150-200g piece of fresh or frozen wild BC salmon (x2)
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 3 shallots (or 1/2 an onion), diced
  • 3 cloves of garlic, diced
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • handful of fresh cilantro - chopped
  • 1 tbsp cumin
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper 
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees F
  • mix lemon juice, diced shallots, diced garlic, olive oil, cumin and cayenne pepper in a traditional measuring cup or small bowl
  • add chopped fresh cilantro to mix
  • arrange pieces of salmon on a baking tray
  • cover salmon in marinade and let it sit until the oven is ready (you can let it marinade longer if you have the time)
  • bake for 20-25 minutes - depends on your oven and size of salmon

Everybody shares different things but for us, we love to share food. My mouth is watering just writing this post, so give it a shot, even if you don't love cilantro, I promise you'll be surprised at the result.
