  • Combine cilantro, lime juice garlic salt and black pepper in  small bowl.

I really liked this recipe.  It was simple, inexpensive, filling, and delicious.  I had it with some Caribbean sweet potatoes...another recipe I'll share later (delicious!).  As you probably know, salmon is full of omega-3, protein, and vitamin D (a full day's worth!).  All good stuff for any diet.  Hope you enjoy.  ETJ!
