Cumin Coriander Crusted Salmon | www.tasteandtellblog.com

Sometimes, I really wish I lived near the ocean…

I really love seafood. And I’ve mentioned this before, but living in Utah – there’s just not a big selection of “fresh” seafood. In fact, the few times I have bought what the store advertised as “fresh” – I didn’t care for it at all. Since I have to work with what I can get, I buy 99% of the fish we eat at Costco – frozen. And I like it. I’m sure it would be better if I was living in Seattle, or in California somewhere, but I work with what I’ve got.

This is also why so many of the seafood recipes I have here are with salmon. I buy the bags of frozen salmon, so there are quite a few portions in there. My freezer just isn’t big enough to keep a big assortment on hand, and since we both like salmon, that is what we stick with.

One reason I love making fish for dinner is that it is not only easy, but fast and tasty. This recipe hits all three of those points – fast, easy and tasty!! I would actually make this again and again – and I’m sure it would be great on other fish as well!

Cumin-Coriander Crusted Salmon
From Cooking Light Annual Recipes 2008

Serves 4

2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh cilantro
1 tablespoon finely chopped shallots
1 teaspoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon ground coriander
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
4 (6-ounce) salmon fillets
Cooking spray
4 lemon wedges

Combine cilantro, shallots, oil, cumin, coriander, salt, and pepper in a small bowl, stirring to form a paste. Place fish, skin side down, in a shallow baking dish. Coat top of fish with cilantro mixture. Cover; refrigerate 1 hour.

Preheat oven to 400°.

Arrange fish on the rack of a roasting pan coated with cooking spray, and place rack in pan. Bake at 400° for 10 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork or until desired degree of doneness. Serve with lemon wedges.

    I swear you’re my long-lost sister, or cousin, or something. (You even named your kid after me ;)

    I shop at Costco, too, and have been wondering about their fresh salmon. It looks SO good. (And it may be better here since I’m not far from the coast.)

    But the frozen is a better deal. Glad to see you recommend it.

    We are trying to eat more fish & I really need to pick up some salmon

    We live next to the ocean and my husband doesn’t like fish. It’s sad, so sad. I may have to try this on the grill so it doesn’t smell up the house.

  7. Grace says:

    you can keep your salmon (i can’t help but get queasy from the smell of it), but i’ll take the crust. and the cilantro. :)

    One of my girlfriends doesn’t give a damn to fish prepared anyway other than fish and chips. And she thinks pan-fried salmon is just too fishy for her!

    The next time she visits, I am going make her a convert! Thanks for sharing a salmon recipe! It is my all-time favourite!

    I’m always looking for new ways to cook fish, and this salmon looks delicious!
