Lime Cilantro Salmon


A quick 15 minutes Lime Cilantro Salmon recipe to whet your appetite! Moreover, the sauce makes a great dressing for salads. You can toss it with your pasta or serve the salmon over any carb of your choice. I had mine with cauliflower rice while the family had theirs with couscous. Served with a side of grilled white asparagus, sauteed sweet peppers, and mashed avocado. This recipe is a versatile one that can be modified to fit your dietary needs. I’ve included a Keto and Whole30 modification in the recipe card.

By now you’d know that I’m a big fan of The Alaska Guys (TAG). They bring in only the finest wild-caught Alaskan seafood. From the different kinds of salmon, white fish like cod, halibut, and pollock, to the meatiest sweet Alaskan King Crab. They also carry delicious sausages, beef, and non-Alaskan products. Seriously, if you have not tried wild-caught Alaskan salmon, please do yourself a favour and try it. You no longer have to deal with the nasty fishy smell on your hands and in your kitchen. You’d taste the difference, this I promise you.

TAG recently released a new product on their website. It is a 500g pack of skinless and boneless sockeye salmon, individually portioned and vacuum packed. It’s going at $25.50/500g pack. A steal as compared to the regular 160-220g sockeye portions at $68/kg. This is also a great option for family with young kids with a smaller appetite who prefers not to have fish skin on their fillet. Great for cooking soup and congee. My girls aren’t big on salmon skin, so yay for no wastage! Each individual portion size was also perfect for my family of 4, plus my helper. 🙂
