Reviews for Cilantro-Topped Salmon
"Easy & delicious! The topping has such a great flavor. Even the kids liked it. Definitely will make again, maybe even with a little extra topping. :-)"
"This recipe is so easy to make and my husband loved it. I made one substitution, I used the creamy cilanto in a tube instead of the fresh as that's what I had on hand, but it turned out great. We like salmon so I try to fix it different ways."
