This recipe was inspired by My Columbian Recipes, I loved the simplicity and freshness of the dish and Salmon is so tasty and good for you.



  1. Salmon fillets, I used Wild Alaskan.
  2. 3 cloves of garlic
  3. 1/2 a bunch of fresh cilantro
  4. salt and pepper
  5. olive oil
  6. lime juice to taste


  1. blend the cilantro, salt and pepper, olive oil, lime juice and garlic together.
  2. spread over the salmon and pan fry with a lid on it about 5 minutes on each side
  3. then when cooked add more of the glaze
It was eaten over a bed of orzo and broccoli. The Orzo was simply boiled to el dente then I mixed in 2 triangles of laughing cow swiss cheese with a little of the garlic/cilantro mix.
