Recipe Thursday



Wow!! I have been so slack in giving recipes..

So, here is the one we did last night.

Cuban Salmon

1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
Juice of 2 lemons or limes
2 large cloves garlic, minced
2 large shallots, minced
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Kosher salt
1/2 bunch cilantro, roughly chopped
4 6-ounce center-cut salmon fillets, skin removed
1 14-ounce can hearts of palm, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 pint cherry or grape tomatoes, halved
Vegetable oil, for brushing
2 cups mixed salad greens




Directions Preheat a grill to medium high.  Instead of grilling I put them in a frying pan..(NOT A GOOD IDEA) In a large bowl, whisk 2 tablespoons olive oil, the juice of 1 lemon, the garlic, shallots, cumin, cayenne, 1 teaspoon salt and half of the cilantro. Add the salmon and turn to coat. Let marinate 15 minutes at room temperature.
This smelled so good.. I just couldn't wait to dig in!!!



Meanwhile, toss the hearts of palm and tomatoes in a bowl with the remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil, the juice of the remaining lemon, and the rest of the cilantro. Season with salt.

I hadn't ever had Hearts of Palm..before  

Brush the grill with vegetable oil. Grill the salmon, round side down, until marked on the bottom, about 4 minutes.



Turn and continue grilling until marked on the other side and cooked through, 2 to 3 more minutes. Divide the salmon among plates. Serve with the greens and hearts of palm salad; drizzle the juices from the salad over the greens.



After all this hard work.. This was a recipe that my family has asked that I do not make again!!
