Marinated Salmon Steaks

You won't even have to buy the new Martha Stewart magazine when I'm done here! There were so many good recipes this time. Including this amazing salmon dish. We usually just grill salmon fillets with a little seasoning, so a salmon steak was a whole new adventure. My only disappointment was that I couldn't get smaller steaks....these were huge! I made a the whole amount of marinade for only 2 steaks and it worked out perfectly,even the recipe calls for 4 steaks.

1 bunch cilantro, thick stems removed
3 garlic cloves, chopped
1 jalapeno, chopped
1 1/2 inch piece of fresh ginger, peeled and chopped
1 tsp. paprika
1 tsp. cumin
1/4 cup plus 1 T. olive oil
2 T. fresh lemon juice
4 salmon steaks

  1. In a food processor, pulse cilantro, garlic, chile, ginger, paprika, and cumin until finely chopped. Add 1/4 cup olive oil and lemon juice and pulse to combine.
  2. Arrange salmon in a 9-by-13-inch baking dish. Rub both sides with cilantro mixture. Cover and refrigerate 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 375. Bake salmon, uncovered, until opaque throughout, 12 to 14 minutes.
We ended up sharing 1 steak due to the size, then for lunch the next day, I flaked the salmon off the bone and made salmon patties!!! Double bonus dinner!!
