Cilantro Lime Baked Salmon

I enjoy cooking Salmon at home, and try to include it here and there in our menu. Miss 2 year old isn’t a fully convinced fan of salmon, but I sneak it in her meals whenever I can. Since we like salmon, I always like to try different flavours so it doesn’t get boring.  That’s how this recipe has come together!

I love the smell and flavour of coriander so putting that together with some lime gives this salmon fillet amazing flavour and smell and was just delish! Quick and easy to put together and definitely healthy. Pair this with a rice dish or pita bread with some salad and dips and you have a very nutritious meal prepared
