What you will need:
2 Salmon Fillets
1 bunch of Cilantro- diced small
Small Jar of Green Olives- cut in half
1/2 Cup of Cacique Queso Fresco cheese- crumbled
15 Cherry Tomatoes- halved
1 Cucumber- Diced
2 Garlic Cloves- diced very small
2 TBSP Butter
1 tsp. Fish Seasoning
1 tsp. Paprika
Salt and Pepper to taste
What To Do:
Season your salmon with lemon juice, paprika, salt, pepper and fish seasoning. Add diced garlic, half of the diced cilantro and butter to top of salmon and add to a 350 F preheated oven uncovered. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until done all the way through.
To Make The Salad Topping:
Mix together diced cucumber, cherry tomatoes, green olives and half of the cilantro and cheese to a large bowl and toss together. Let sit in the refrigerator while the salmon cooks.
You can use feta cheese instead of the queso fresco if you like feta but I don't so I used a different crumbly cheese.
Remove salmon from oven and let sit for 5 minutes to cool down slightly and finish cooking. Top with the salad mixture and a squeeze of lemon and enjoy.
This made 2 servings. My daughter and I enjoyed this a lot. We served this on top of a couple of lettuce leaves but you can omit that if you like.
