Last week I made this delicious dish for lunch.  For lunch?  Who has the time to cook this for lunch right?  Would you believe me if I told you that this dish only took me 10 minutes to whip up?  For real it did. I think often times people over think cooking whole foods.  This fish is so delicious that a simple sauce is all you need!  When using fresh whole foods, you don’t need all the extra ingredients to help it taste good.  Keep it simple and let the dish shine on its own.

Give this simple recipe a try.  I think you will be pleasantly surprised how easy and wonderful this dish is!

    Thanks, like others said, easy and delicious, my wife and kids ate everything. no leftovers for me for lunch tomorrow ( i made extra hoping but was pleasntly suprised at the response).  letting it sit longer in the marinade highlights the cilantro. Try to give it at least the full hour prior to cooking.
