I find salmon rich enough and so I don't use the butter. Instead I brush with olive oil and a squeeze of lemon. Or you can brush with balsamic dressing (Renee's is nice). I wash and freeze my cilantro which makes it very easy to chop finely and it is "wilted" and perfect for the recipe so you don't have to sautee in butter. For colour I like to add a couple of thinly sliced rings of red pepper. Voila! lower in fat - no trans fat from the butter and pretty too!! Read More

Excellent! I too thought butter might be too heavy so I brused the salmon with olive oil and squeezed fresh LIME juice..it only compliments the cilantro and jalepeno flavor..yummy! Read More

We LOVED this fish. I am just starting to eat salmon and I was so impressed with it. I was afraid that the jalepeno would over power the fish but it didn't. We are usually stuck with chicken and beef recipes and have been trying to branch out a bit this recipe will definatly become part of our regular menu. Read More

I love salmon and I love cilantro so I figured I couldn't go wrong here! Good recipe I used this jalapeno "relish" stuff (which includes chopped onion & red bell pepper)that takes up residency in my fridge and that worked out great for this recipe. I would recommend adding some garlic. Thanks T&J! Read More

This was a wonderful recipe. Was a little worried that the peppers would be too much when I made the sauce but poured the extra over the Salmon tasted excelent. I also baked mine since it was raining. Cooked it about 30 min on 350 turned out great. Will be adding the the menu Read More

Loved loved loved this dish. Couldn't bring myself to add the jalapenos but it was wonderful. The melted butter with the fresh cilantro was the perfect combination with this fresh fish. I just couldn't see adding the peppers. I also omitted the Old Bay seasoning and used the juice of a fresh lemon garlic powder and sea salt to season the fish. Read More

My husband 9 and 10 year old granddaughters and myself loved it. I used butter (didn't think it made it to heavy) added some lemon juice (didn't have limes on hand) and generously sprinkled Old Bay over top before baking. Since it was wrapped in foil didn't think I'd get any benefit from the charcoal grill so I baked it for 20 minutes at 350. Will definitely make it again and recommend it to others. Read More

I changed this alittle bit. I used oil instead of butter and added garlic and 1 tab lime. Than I put this in the blender and marinated it for 4 hours. This was very good and did not over power the salmon. Read More
