1/2 Cilantro Leaf
1 Garlic Clove
2 Lime Juice
1 Olive Oil
4 Salmon Steaks
Place fish on plate.
Combine cilantro, garlic, lime juice, oil and salt in a bowl.
Set 2 tablespoons aside in a separate bowl.
Pour the cilantro mixture over the fish (do not use the 2 Tbsp reserved marinade.
Cover and let it sit 10 minutes.
Spray broiler rack with nonstick cooking spray.
Place salmon on rack and brush with 1 tablespoon marinade.
Broil 6 from heat about 3-4 minutes.
Turn steaks over and brush with remaining tablespoon of marinade.
Broil 3 more minutes or until cooked through.,
Note: I have used two very thick salmon steaks instead of the four 3/4 inch thick ones that the recipe calls for, and I have used the same amount of marinade.
However, since thicker steaks will take longer to cook, the marinade can burn.
To compensate for this, I add a little bit of marinade at a time.
For example, if the salmon steaks are 1- 1 1/2 inch thick or more, they can take around 10 minutes to cook.
So I brush the salmon steaks with less marinade, around 1/2 tablespoon.
I then remove them from the broiler after 2 1/2- 3 minutes, and add a little more marinade, reserving enough for two more applications.,
Then I broil for another 2 1/2 minutes.
I then turn the salmon over and add more marinade, still reserving a little.
I broil another 2 1/2 minutes.
I then add the remaining marinade and broil the remaining 2 1/2 minutes or until cooked through.
This may seem tiresome, but it’s well worth it.
The marinade is great and you definitely don’t want it to burn!
