Grilled Salmon with Cilantro Pesto

If you don’t have a grill, use a heavy-bottomed non-stick skillet instead. But make sure to grease the skillet lightly and cook over high heat.


• Salmon 2 thick fillets
• Olive oil 1 tablespoon
• Salt to season
• Black pepper to season


Heat the grill to high. Brush the salmon fillets with oil and season with salt and pepper. Place the salmon fillets on the grill, skin side down, and grill until golden brown and slightly charred, about 3 minutes. Flip and grill the other side for 1-2 minutes. Remove and let rest for 2-3 minutes before serving. Serve with Corn rice.

For the pesto
  • Cilantro/Coriander leaves: 1 bunch
  • Garlic: 2 cloves
  • Salt: to taste
  • Black pepper powder: to taste
  • Lime juice: 2 tablespoons
  • Pine nuts (optional): 1 tablespoon
  • Olive oil: 1 tablespoon 
Grind cilantro, garlic and pine nuts into a smooth paste. Add the lime juice and a little water if needed. Add olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
