coriander-crusted salmon

This fish will rock your face off! It's super simple and has a ton of flavor. Serve on top of chickpea artichoke salad for a satisfying meal. My daughter loves this meal and said it was so good that she didn't even notice the red onions in the salad (she's 9).

coriander-crusted salmon

  • 3 tablespoons ground coriander (if you don't have coriander you can use cumin)
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 salmon fillets (1 1/2 lbs total)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  1. Combine the first 3 ingredients in a small bowl, set aside.
  2. Preheat a large saute pan on medium heat for 2-3 minutes. While pan heats up rinse fish with water and pat dry, then coat both sides with coriander mix.
  3. Put oil in pan, then add fish. Cook 3-4 minutes on each side and until fish flakes easily. Serve over chickpea artichoke salad (below).
