Green Shawarma Salmon

This is freaking delicious. This recipe is from Bon Appetit July 2011’s issue. This picture is also from Bon Appetit’s site. I forgot to take a picture of my salmon. Please forgive my picture swipe.

Green Shawarma Salmon
1 cup chopped fresh cilantro
7 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
2 garlic cloves, chopped
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
4 (6-ounce) boneless salmon fillet


Purée the first 8 ingredients in a blender until smooth. Season marinade to taste with salt and pepper. DO AHEAD Can be made 1 day ahead. Cover and chill.

Place salmon fillets on a platter. Spoon marinade over fish and turn to coat. Cover; chill at least 1 hour and up to 3 hours.

Build a medium-hot fire in a charcoal grill, or heat a gas grill to high. Grill fish in a fish basket, if desired, until just cooked through, about 4 minutes per side.
