    Broiled Salmon With Lime And Cilantro Recipe

    Ingredients:
    1/2 c Cilantro leaves, finely chopped
    1 Garlic clove, lg, fine chopped
    2 tb Lime juice
    1 tb Olive oil
    1/2 ts Salt
    4 Salmon steaks, 3/4" thick
    Directions:
    Combine cilantro, garlic, lime juice, oil and salt in bowl. Reserve 2 tablespoons. Pour remainder over fish on plate. Let stand, covered, 10 minutes.

    Spray broiler rack with nonstick cooking spray. Place salmon on rack. Brush with 1 tablespoons marinade. (I usually do this one on the barbecue in one of those no stick bbq stirfry baskets. The basket stops the fish from breaking apart and falling through the grill and I like the smoky touch the bbq gives the flavour.)

    Broil 6" from heat for 3-4 minutes. Turn steaks over. Brush with remaining tablespoon marinade. Broil 3 more minutes or until cooked throughhttp://recipes.epicurean.com/recipe/15709/broiled-salmon-with-lime-and-cilantro.html

    I make my chunky guacamole with cilantro.

    I take one avocado, peel it, cut it up and mash it up then add

    small-diced onion
    small-diced tomato
    chopped up cilantro
    squeeze in juice of half a lime (sometimes the whole lime if I feel extra limey)
    salt

    All ingredients to taste, of course. I usually end up using a handful of cilantro, and sometimes I even chop up the stems because they snap and are kind of crunchy.

    This is Paula Deen's recipe, but I made it, and it was good! Even I couldn't screw it up!

    White Bean Chili Recipe courtesy Paula Deen

    1 pound dried navy beans
    5 cups chicken stock
    4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) butter
    1 tablespoon minced garlic
    3/4 cup diced onion
    1 1/2 cups chopped green chiles (fresh or canned)
    1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, finely chopped
    1 tablespoon ground cumin
    1 tablespoon dried oregano
    1 to 2 teaspoons ground black pepper
    1/2 teaspoon white pepper
    Pinch red pepper flakes
    1/2 bunch cilantro leaves, chopped

    Rinse beans well, cover with cool water, and soak for 2 hours. Drain. Place beans in large pot with chicken stock and bring to a boil over high heat. In a saucepan, heat butter over medium heat. Add garlic, onion, and chiles and saute for 5 minutes. Add chile mixture to pot with beans. Add chicken, cumin, oregano, pepper, white pepper, red pepper flakes, and cilantro. Lower heat to medium and cook, stirring occasionally, for approximately 1 1/2 hours. Serve with cornbread, if desired.

    • 1/2 cup pine nuts
    • salt to taste
    • 1/2 cup olive oil
    1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the pasta, and return water to a boil. Cook pasta for 8 to 10 minutes, or until al dente; drain well.
    2. In an electric food processor or blender, blend cilantro, garlic, lime juice, Parmesan cheese, cayenne pepper, nuts, and salt. Add 1/4 cup of the olive oil, and blend the pesto. Add more olive oil until the pesto reaches your desired consistency.
    3. Pour pesto in a small saucepan and warm over low heat, stirring constantly, until pesto begins to simmer. Pour over cooked pasta and toss.

    i made dim sum dumplings this weekend and put tons of cilantro in the filling.

    recipe's easy. you buy the shells (buy the japanese ones, they tend to be better quality than the ones in chinese shops). you could make them yourself (it's just flour and water, flour can be rice or regular) but i'm too lazy.

    filling:
    bunch of cilantro, chopped
    chives, chopped
    chicken, minced (until it's practically chicken mush), but you can also use shrimp
    sesame oil
    chinese mushrooms (you can use fresh or the dry ones you soak in water), chopped
    salt
    white pepper
    ginger, minced
    soy sauce

    make sure the filling is not watery, if there's too much liquid, just squeeze some of it out.

    take the shells, put the filling in the middle, and pinch and fold them together until they look like this: http://maymaycooking.tripod.com/site...1_182518aa.jpg
    (mine weren't as pretty)

    cook in a steamer, about 15 minutes

    you can also make vegetarian filling - replace the chicken with one fried egg (just fry it up and mix it around so it's like unfluffy scrambled egg) and mix in with the rest of the ingredients, maybe add a bunch of soy sprouts too or other veggies.

    for dipping sauce i used soy sauce with some chilli

    1 tablespoon fresh ginger, grated and minced

    1/2 oz Simple Syrup
    2 oz citrus flavored vodka (recommended Ketel One Citroen)
    1/2 oz gin (recommended Bombay Sapphire)
    1. Fill shaker with crushed ice, cilantro, lime juice, and simple syrup. Muddle well.
    2. Add vodka and gin shake well.
    3. Strain into a chilled cocktail shaker and enjoy.
    Serves 1.

    Oh no!! Cilantro strikes again. Me hates it. Tastes like soap. The recipes above sound delish...sans Cilantro.
