Salmon in Lime Ginger Sauce

  • By Riley Woodford

    Prep time:
    15 minutes prep, 10 minutes to marinade, and 15 to cook.

    Serves:
    4

    Ingredients:
    – ¼ cup fresh cilantro, chopped
    – 3 Tbs. fresh ginger, chopped
    – 2 garlic cloves, chopped
    – 2 jalapeño peppers, seeded and chopped
    – Juice from one lime, (about three Tbs.)
    – 1 Tbs. olive oil
    – ¼ tsp. turmeric
    – Four, six-ounce salmon fillets

    Directions:
    Combine first four ingredients in a food processor or blender. Process until smooth, adding a little water if necessary. Add the next three ingredients and mix thoroughly. Transfer the mixture to a shallow dish and coat the fish fillets well, then cover and marinate for 10 minutes in the refrigerator.

    Spread enough marinade to cover the bottom of a large, heavy skillet, and add the fillets. Spread the remaining marinade on the fish. Cover the skillet tightly and cook for 15 minutes over medium-low heat until fish is opaque throughout.
